VIEWPOINT - Targetting Little Old Ladies Going to Church
After just coming back from a trip I thought I would see what you have to say about an issue that has been bugging me for some time. One can not drive very far without encountering one of what I call the crazies. The driver who drives like a fool, way too fast for either weather or road conditions, passing when its not safe, Etc. Etc.,and generally putting everyone in his or her path at risk. These are the people who scare me a lot more than someone who inadvertently goes over the speed limit but is driving carefully and skilfully.
The Highways would be a lot safer if the RCMP would spend their time at apprehending these people and doing what they can to keep them off the road. If the RCMP would target this group instead of spending an inordinate amount of time in setting up elaborate schemes to catch some poor old lady who is late for church going 10 K over the limit. (I’m not kidding this happened to my neighbour last week) we would all be better off and the highways would be much safer.
