Traffic trauma

I know that the police can’t be everywhere all the time, but I never see a cruiser on the road.

I know that the police can’t be everywhere all the time, but I never see a cruiser on the road — their parking lot appears full when I pass by.

There are many reasons for our police to be policing, one of which should be to take notice of the way people drive and the speed which they drive.

If there is no threat to see a police officer, then more bad driving and vandalism will take place.

More police on the roads and by elementary schools at drop-off and pick-ups and anywhere on the roads could find many infractions of law breaking on an average of five minutes apart from each other.

I’m not a perfect driver but I do try to abide by the speed limits and rules of my driving but I am tired of being bumper ridden, cut off and glared at because I’m doing the speed limit.
