Fred for governor!
...I'll amend the federal whistle blower act to permit all citizen drivers/riders in good standing ( i.e. no lawyers) to collect a bounty, or percentage of the traffic fines collected when they submit handlebar or dash video footage of simple safety related traffic violations. Things like no or improper turn signal use, running stop signs and red lights, failure to yield, etc.
No citations for speeding permitted since speeding is so pervasive
This core of my party platform came to me today moments after a flashless, clueless cager darted across two traffic lanes to exit the freeway. He/she came a bit close to a biker in front of me that I'm not sure the driver even saw. Wet road, could have been bad.
Anyways why not make the bad drivers fear the good drivers rather than the other way around?
I already found out they won't permit me to use paint ball guns to mark those bad driver's vehicles and thus warn others.
So let's issue bounties instead.

"improper turn signal use" hmm thats an interesting item
In California and only in Cali I have not seen a turn signal used in the past 20 years I assume CA model cars are never quipped with a turn signal lever
when I forget I'm in Cali and I use my turn signals it assures my lane will be blocked and I'll never be let over lol
In Cali improper use would be using a turn signal ?

I'd get a ticket for forgetting to turn mine off... lol.

Here in Up State NY I think the higher end vehicles, Caddys, Benz, Range Rover and the exotics must come without blinkers. Even most of the police cruisers fail to use them but they have plenty of other lights they love to use all the time.

Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

Unless you live in New York City where apparently drivers just use their horns then the primary form of communication between cars elsewhere is the use of turn signals. Turn signals basically announce one's intended action.
When we communicate we can be either honest or dishonest. Thus failure to use turn signals correctly I view as being dishonest, or lying.
Too simplistic? How about just plain old selfish, inconsiderate, illegal, unsafe and stupid?
Like using seat belts in the car I try to maintain the habit of always using turn signals everywhere. Never know when a bicycle, biker, or pedestrian we do not anticipate can pop up out of the blue. So I am that silly guy out in the empty woods flashing his lights at turns. Call me "Blinky".
I also treat every gun as if it is loaded. I also treat late Friday night drivers as being loaded too.
I agree with Fred. Get three different color paint ball marks on the rear of your vehicle. You get a one day suspension of your license, effective immediately. For the younger drivers this means you have to take a time out. Time to sober up or come off the high from the paint your sniffing or the drugs your on, legal or not. Get three time outs in a week you get to see the "judge" and exp.lain. Before your license is pulled.
Could use a laser tag system of some sort. Kind of like my nephews laser tag game. So the same person couldn't abuse the system.
Good thinking! Chip gets a seat in the new administration as the Director of the Bureau of Bad Driver Control. I do feel the liberal application of paint balls might give somewhat better visceral gratification than a laser though. I'll wait for you Cabinet Members to weigh in with feasibility study, perhaps enact a pilot program in your home town?paint.jpg
