Go after the stupid drivers

People break the law by not paying up and this government does nothing about it

This government wants to increase where one can buy booze so we will have more drunks. Drunks who drink and drive — then you want to increase speed?

So many accidents are caused by speed and drinking drivers. No matter what speed there is, B.C. drivers will drive faster.

Why blame slower drivers if they drive in the right lane that allows others to pass? Look at the speed on the German highways. They have horrific crashes.

So speed is not the answer. You need to concentrate on the stupid drivers.

When I moved to B.C. in 1956, B.C. had the best drivers in the world. We had driver tests each year. Cars had to be maintained. If people were given tickets for poor driving, you had to pay.

Not like it is now — people break the law by not paying up and this government does nothing about it.

If B.C. Transit had put in turnstiles they would not be in debt, because people caught not paying simply never pay. You allow people to do as they please.

I say no increasing the speeds on our roads and highways. Speed needs to be reduced.

Get after the poor drivers.
