I learn an editorial in Wednesday’s paper dated March 17 speaking about DWI deaths in America. In my view, a few of statistics are fabricated to suit the necessity of sure teams of people. They by no means speak of texting whereas driving and the deaths and non-fatal accidents that this downside causes. I’m one that won’t decide up my telephone whereas driving till I’m stopped and may speak safely. In my view, there are most likely as many, if no more, deaths and accidents brought on by speaking or texting whereas driving in comparison with driving whereas intoxicated. In my view, this offense must be thought of as careless and imprudent driving and must be thought of a significant violation with lack of driving privileges for one month and 4 factors taken off your license and a $200 fantastic for every offense.
The general public is so anxious about DWI and crashes, perhaps they need to take a look at the actual image: DWI is not more than a cash racket by politicians and regulation enforcement to earn a living for the state and counties the place the offense is dedicated figuring out they don’t seem to be fixing the issue. They already know most individuals convicted of DWI will do it once more irrespective of what number of applications you set them in. Then they need to have a lawyer, pay for courses that need to be paid for by the offender, lose their license and jail time, and so they know actual alcoholics won’t ever change their stripes. In my view, regulation enforcement officers together with state leaders and judges textual content and drive, figuring out they may by no means be reprimanded. So allow us to give up dogging DWI a lot and pay extra consideration to idiots texting and speaking whereas driving. I’m not saying they shouldn’t get them off the highway — aka drunk drivers — however let’s go some legal guidelines that may considerably cease numerous texting and driving so there can be fewer fatalities and non-fatal accidents. Or, is that an excessive amount of to ask of our state leaders and regulation enforcement? Possibly these indicators on I-70 ought to learn “texting and driving is impaired driving.” Or is it they only don’t give a rattling?
