I have to disagree with your article in Wednesday July 31 paper. You say that speed is the primary reason for accidents on our highways. I say it is frustration causing speed.
It is illegal to pass on the left on the highways.
But when you have commuters staying in the left hand lane not doing the speed limit or staying side by each with another driver, we have no choice but to get frustrated and speed to get around them when we can.
I believe it is also illegal to hold up traffic. It seems the police do not know of this law as it is never enforced.
If you want to cut down on speeders keep right except to pass and let those who choose to speed get caught by the police or get the police to give tickets to those who don't know the law or common courtesy.
Then you will see a drastic decline in speed and accidents on our highways.
