Put a halt to bad drivers with bad attitudes

A huge proportion of Victoria-area drivers are selfish.

A huge proportion of Victoria-area drivers are selfish.

They park in handicap stalls just to visit the government booze store.

Other jerks deliberately drive fast through playground and school speed zones, or weave in and out through heavy highway traffic. They deliberately endanger other people for their own perceived convenience. That’s irrationally selfish behaviour.

And there’s another psychographic group I’ve noticed recently — young females in old cars, complete with cigarette, cellular phone and bad attitude. They don’t know how to handle the vehicle either.

When will voters demand that politicians fund police to get more feet on the street to curb dangerous drivers?
