Enforcing Traffic Laws

June 03, 2004

Re "CHP May Get to Hire 270 Officers," June 1: I am glad to read that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has agreed to fill some or all of the vacant California Highway Patrol positions, perhaps hiring as many as 270 officers.

I have a better idea: Hire even more and put them out on our freeways writing citations to all drivers who flagrantly disregard our traffic laws by speeding, tailgating and weaving through traffic lanes. Not only would this make our highways safer and reduce gasoline consumption (as average speed is reduced), the resultant fines would balance our state budget, if my traffic observations are any indication.
