Zero tolerance

Its too bad I can't do anything about it.

Existing penalties for speeding include a fine, demerit points, and if you're unlucky enough to have it happen several times, temporary suspension of your license.

I think I can speak for the majority of people who have been busted for speeding before that it is little more than an inconvenience. It simply turns what might have been a good day to bad, and a bad day to worse.

Nobody learns anything from getting a slap on the wrist and a stern word; and frankly that is what it amounts to in my mind. As it is now, enforcing the law (with respect to speeding) is kind of like randomly groping around in the dark. The unlucky ones who aren't careful enough or not alert enough are the ones that get caught.

You know what would stop me from speeding, forever? If they took away your right to drive, the instant you got caught. Sure, its not much better, its still haphazard, but gee, I think it would sort the immensely stupid from the moronic.

"Oh, I'm sorry, you didn't know that our policy recently changed to zero tolerance? Tell your story walking pal."

On another note, I understand why there is so much leeway in the current system. I just don't like it.
