Since the articles in the paper seem to indicate a dislike for the tax increase for the Police Department and the police have confirmed that there is a need, as well when I see the full page of police calls, as well as all of the vehicle accidents when it sprinkles, or there are three drops of snow, ha – I have a suggestion to make, being a former insurance adjuster and knowing for the most part there is no excuse for auto accidents.

Therefore, in all of these hundreds of accidents that take many police hours to handle, let’s charge the aggressive driver with $200 for it and let’s also charge the less aggressive driver who didn’t get the ticket with $100. Some might think this would be unfair to the somewhat lesser faulted driver, but not so. Remember the second car would have the responsibility for lost clear chance.

Now hear this: I have driven all types of cars for 75 years, less 16 years, and have never had an auto accident. When I see TV news showing a number of cars sliding all over the streets and highways, I think “what’s wrong with these drivers?” They should all be charged with something. Any driver could stick their hand out a window and feel if it is freezing. If so, then slow down!
