    Why do I have to drive on the same roads everyday with irresponsible morons whose vehicles are not registered , who don't have insurance, don't have a licence, and usually owe thousands in outstanding fines ?. This is 2012, for God's sake. Are the systems at Motor Registration and Traffic Court that antiquated that they can't get a handle on this problem ?. How long more are we expected to put up with this crap ?.
