    Another tabloid story. I saw an entire tanker load of gas nearly clip a gas pump today, couldn't have missed it more than 100 feet.

    Instead of a 'war on drugs' it would make more sense to have a 'war on bad drivers'. Drug abuse is a health problem at the core and warriors are an inappropriate for a solution for a health problem and its obviously an ineffective solution that destroys lives. Bad drivers, on the other hand, fit directly within the public safety departments' mission to protect and serve and enforcing fundamental laws that protect the commons and directly save lives.

    Let them use tactics such as SWAT, surveillance, warrants, confiscate property such as houses & cars & cash. Give mandatory minimum sentences for aggressive drivers and repeat offenders. Lock up bad drivers because the punishment should fit the crime.
