Beware! All bad drivers ...

Too many bad drivers where you live? I have the solution. You may not like it. You're gonna have to trust me here.

I think ALL bad drivers should have their license revoked. Legally. By the court system. Who will be responsible for determining who is a bad driver? ME!! Of course.

If I single you out as a bad driver, you must go to court and a judge will immediately revoke your driving privilege (it is a privilege, you know, not a right). The judge already knows that if I send you to him, you deserve it. He will levy a fine for driving badly which will go towards the public transport system in your city. He will take your license and tear it up. You must now use your city's mass transit system. Take the bus. Take the monorail or streetcar (if you have one). Get a bicycle. Get there however you must. You just can't drive anymore.

This idea has some wonderful repercussions.

There will be millions of fewer cars on the road. Gasoline demand will be greatly reduced as well as harmful emissions from vehicles. All of the new road and bridge construction can be cancelled. Won't need all that now. In fact, I may be the only driver left on the road when this is all said and done.

Of course, there may be a few jobs lost in car and truck manufacturing. Suppliers may have to cut jobs and the trucking and shipping companies will have to cut back. A few construction jobs may be lost, but for the overall good cause (of course). I can overlook these little negative points on the economy because my serenity level shall remain high.

And I won't be shooting the finger at you again.
