Given One Authority

Postby generalposter » Nov 12th, 2017, 9:55 am

If you could be granted one authority to enforce existing laws that our police forces are responsible to uphold what would you choose? Would you take on speeders, drug dealers, distracted driving, aggressive driving or anything else?

I would go after distracted drivers with a passion and a vengeance.
Someone has to say it.

I would go after the 3 out of every 5 drivers that change lanes in an intersection in the midst of a left or right turn.

I’d go after distracted drivers who go after distracted drivers seeing that they’re just as distracted as the others are.
Nobody wants to hear your opinion. They just want to hear their own opinion coming out of your mouth.

I would go after speeding drug dealers who are talking on their phones while changing lanes in an intersection!
I have never tried Yoga but I bent over to pick up my keys once so I'm pretty sure I wouldn't like it.

I'd like to be in charge of making old people give up their licenses because last time they were able to see the road properly was during Raegan administration.

Illegally modified vehicles driven by distracted. impaired drug dealers that
change lanes in intersections and brake check semi's.

or, to simplify.

Everyone not driving a semi !

(and some that do.)

Busting left lane hogs who are going the exact same speed or less than the driver beside them, impeding traffic flow. They should be publicly flogged.

Busting people in the right lane that speed up and match the speed of those in the left lane that
pulled out to pass, thus creating the illusion of one being a left lane hog. :smt045

That certainly would thin out the herd . . . no supply or demand for illegal substances or materials . . .

The authority to start a party anywhere.

Then I could go to various places and say "You got the right...to PAAARRRTAAYY!" and breakout into a party.
