* I would ban outdoor advertizing except
at the point of sale - unless it was of a community benefit but not politics or beaurocracy related,
Visual pollution, mind altering distraction, brainwashing, invasion of privacy....disturbing the peace.
* I would remove useless speed humps, most roundabouts,
except at busy, but not too busy (which would require traffic lights) intersections.
Both these add to stress on both the car and the driver and passengers (not to mention critically ill or injured
ambulance occupants) and thus contribute to the danger of accidents and not the other way round.
Similarly for speed cameras and traffic light cameras.
These should be replaced by highly visible red warning signs urging caution as this is a high accident, or a school area.
I would completely revamp the current licence demerit point system replacing it with with a three point system which
would remain in force for the life of the driver.
1 point for an accident occasioning bodily harm that requires hospitalization, not just medical treatment.
2 points for a second offence and the loss of licence for 1 year during which the driver must undergo rigorous training
and evaluation including attitudinal training to correct false perceptions or behaviour problems associated with dangerous
driving. However the driver must first be given the chance to show that it was indeed a genuine accident and not related to
3 points for a third accident involving hospitalization and not just medical treatment; as long as the above conditions
are met, the licence should be suspended for life.
If alcohol is related to the first two of the above a mandatory breathalyser start kit must be fitted to any car the offender
drives for three years for the first offence and for life for the second.
It should be an offence for any municipal council to leave any roads in their jurisdiction in a bad condition, including
Clocks on public display should mandatoryly tell the right time or be removed.
