Bravo, Wendy! But so many of us who follow the rules, don’t violate simple, sensible required traffic regulations that contribute to all our safety and good traffic flow. I have been saying this for decades, but you said it better. So how come it still goes on? Because there is no penalty for violation; I bet half the tickets go unpaid. How about serious fines, booting, names in the paper of repeat offenders? What does it take to motivate selfish arrogant “I’m-the-only-one-on-the road-and-it is-mine” mentality? We don’t seem to impress upon them civility and fines go unpaid for years. Hit them in the pocketbook (or since that appears not to matter to many in town), embarrass them with their names in the paper. Let’s find a solution now that you have said it best.
