Those caught driving without a valid license or insurance should be automatically incarcerated and their vehicle permanently confiscated. Harsh, yes, but our current policy of wrist-slapping obviously doesn't work.
It's time for us, as a society, to develop a backbone and start setting firm limits and enforcing them. Operating a motor vehicle is not an inalienable right, and the amount of maiming and killing occurring on our streets is a disgrace!
I could feel the pain in the letter written by Janine Bonn about her friend who was hit by a car while walking ("City needs to invest in safer driving," Oct. 5). As an accident investigator, I have seen how devastating a pedestrian-involved collision can be.
