I usually agree with Mr. Peters, but as a Virginia resident, I can’t back him on this one.
In the last ten years, our streets and highways have become increasingly dangerous. Day after day, I see idiotic maneuvers on a routine basis, maneuvers that I never saw just a decade ago.
The state has a long list of failures. Almost no requirement to demonstrate driver competence before one can obtain a license.
But (like our borders), the state has (for the most part) refused to enforce existing laws, at least to the point where people obey them.
So if they are actually enforced (doubtful) I support $1,000 fines on people who are caught going 20 miles + over the posted speed limit. Odds are, this is not the only offense these drivers are guilty of. They’re likely the same people who tailgate an inch or two behind people who are driving over the speed limit and in the center or right lane of the highway, who weave in an out of traffic without using their turn signals and who do the recent “drive up to within 2” of the rear bumper of the car in front then slash away, like you’re the drafting car at a NASCAR event,” maneuver.p>Fine them all. And if they can’t pay it, revoke their license and get them off of the road. br> — Brian /p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
