  1. I like the part where I read about the money. We lucians too stupid. why we selling our heritage through passports, when we can make 4 million from bad driving while saving lives! we need to reschool our police force beyond killing and crime. start going on patrol for bad drivers, expired license, no insurance, disturbance and noise. add more Deputy DPP or whoever to hear those cases, and make money. by the time the fools get the message we than take 10 million at least from them already. and remmeber this is not just taking money. money is circulating so when we use it for different puroposes even the fools we take it from end up benefiting in terms of safer roads, safer country....

  2. The statistics seems to say that more tickets still need to be issued in order to curb bad driving rabbits. .Eventually the government will wake up to the fact that "bad" drivers not all could be a big boost to the government coffers through the issuance of tickets while saving lives..
    Much more need to be done with regard to road safety
