I never thought I would say this, but it is time for more severe traffic regulations. I might even go so far as say I would be okay with speed cameras on the highways only. Aggressive driving is out of control coupled with distracted driving, and the roads have become a war zone. Really it is time for law enforcement and the government to do something.

Or better yet, allow drivers to press charges against reckless drivers for endangering their lives. Bring your dash cam to the police station, download video, fill out form with offenders license plate number, offender is fined.

Self driving cars would help.
Don’t rush, don’t hesitate and thousands of sensors on board and can think 100x faster than a human.

Why? Speed and of by itself has nothing to do with distracted/aggressive driving.

We dont need the police and courts to be anymore gestapo and revenue generating than they already are.
If youre in an area with bad drivers, then move. Bad drivers are usually geographic with more congested areas.

Police officers swear that speeding makes it worse. They argue that speeding makes it harder to avoid a situation......

Just saying what I have been told.

If one of them malfunctions, runs a red light, crashes into you and seriously injures you, who do you sue?

Itís a local and state issue.

Distracted driving is an increasingly serious issue.

I have never been pulled over for a traffic violation and have never had a parking ticket because I comply with laws and ignore my phone while driving. I live near some communities with posted speed limits of 25 mph. It is a challenge to comply and I do.

I acknowledge that 30+ years ago, 9 months pregnant, 100 degrees, no AC in the car, I zoned out and snapped to in the middle of an intersection, with other cars screeching to a halt, having blown a red light. I am grateful that there were no collisions and no one was hurt.

I deserved a ticket and would have had no issue with being cited. As it was, my negligence was not observed by LE.

To this day, I feel shamed by my own negligence.

Pay attention, even when you think you are are paying attention.
