An Australian study estimates that about half of all traffic accidents in Australia may be due to road rage and most of the others related to alcohol, impaired driving and yet the police falsely tend to pursue revenue generating speeding traffic tickets still and why?
Road rage is a relatively serious act; it can be seen as a violation of human and property rights , an endangerment of other’s personal well being, security. Now we know that more people have accident due to road rage, impaired driving, driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol over speeding too and we still do need to review how much time and resources do the police deal with that firstly? ” he ” official statistics showed that only five per cent of crashes are caused by drivers breaking the speed limit. Drivers who let their attention wander cause more than six times as many accidents.” Driver error accounted for 66 per cent of accidents.. and add the road rage, impaired, drunk drivers, bad poorly maintained vehicles to that too .. Most reasonable and reasoning people have seen the folly of speed cameras for decades now too.
The insurance industry itself too often sleeps with legislators, cops because it wants to make loads of money by finding out reasons not to pay out as well.. they support traffic tickets even though they do not reduce the car accidents significantly cause it gives more money to the insurance firms, this is immoral gouging of consumers too often rather too.. now what about having some honest watchdogs and legislators rather. Go after the drunk drivers, raise the price of the booze firstly.. SEE ALSO http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/04/24/research-on-real-world-behavior-crash-factors
Hey even many cops are lazy, they also do want to be paid for doing nothing, but merely driving around , speeding too for they get a rush doing this as I have often witnessed it myself. Too bad for them they are paid to work still too. Maybe we can outlaw citizens driving any cars all together that way the cops and legislators too can still get paid and not have much to do.
Even Premier Dalton McGuinty at it again?.. Premier Dalton McGuinty says he won’t be forcing Ontario motorists to use snow tires during the winter. not following the lead of Quebec, which introduced mandatory snow tire legislation.. so he uses another back door.. that will costs the citizens a lot more money… liability legislation today under the Highway Traffic Act to hold the supposedly irresponsible drivers accountable,, Shortage of governmental money means rather another hidden Ontario tax too.
A study of the figures in the British Medical Journal showed a gap between police and hospital data showed a wide divergence in these figures said one of the authors of the article, Mike Gill, professor of public health at Surrey University. The Police are known to lie, and they try to please their political bosses , to get a raise by generating revenue from traffic tickets.
I call Commissioner Julian Fantino a liar and I do ask him SPECIFICALLY to prove with Honourable statistics that at least 40 per cent of the ROAD crashes are caused SOLELY because car drivers, truck drivers are going too fast in poor road conditions, unrelated to any other factors now too. We all can play on statistics anyway we want, but let’s us have the whole truth rather here too..
“The Canadian Press TORONTO – The head of the Ontario Provincial Police says drivers who crash in bad weather because of their own negligence should have to pay the bill. Commissioner Julian Fantino will propose absolute liability legislation today under the Highway Traffic Act to hold irresponsible drivers accountable. This essentially means making drivers pay for accidents in which they were driving aggressively in poor weather, not insurance companies Fantino says at least 40 per cent of crashes are caused because people are going too fast in poor conditions and not paying attention. He says his proposal targets people “who could care less” about how they are driving when the roads are bad. Fantino says his proposal mirrors laws currently on the books in almost every state in the U.S.”
Many people Canada wide do now often complain about still being harassed, bullied by Traffic cops and getting unnecessary traffic tickets, especially it seems in Ontario, Alberta too. Cops are no angels themselves for sure.
It also seems that the statistical numbers for drunk drivers, accidents too are still startling, too high — and split it seems almost evenly for inside the main cities and in the outlying area where there is less policing too. — While maybe the police, RCMP may have a strong feel for the trends on the roads, for speeding, accidents, drunk driving and the impaired numbers maybe are still not causing the police great concern, due to their own priorities and even due to the differing, often in a not fully reliable way that the Police, accident data is collected year to year, Canada wide now too, still the actual Police statistical values, comparisons are very difficult, erroneous still and these statistics reporting they need to be seriously improved, and the Police themselves even better managed.
Now do you really think that the the majority of the police who now are one of the highest paid professionals are firstly doing their Jobs cause they really firstly serving, are looking after the good welfare of the citizens as they often lie to us and claim they do .. and not cause of the monetary job, fringe benefits ? I would not bet on it not even on your life.. “In reality the too often self serving, money hungry, promotional and empire oriented police, and their superiors, bad justice ministers, bad politicians really do not care about the citizens good welfare but only their own”
Now I have said it for over 3 decades in writing to all too so now call it what you want but police services generally it is not about public safety, for it is a self employment, empire building, a false money grab, revenue generation, hidden taxes.. for if the cops, the mad RCMP were now really worried about public safety THEY WOULD FIRSTLY ARREST THEIR OWN KIND, THE BAD COPS WHO OFTEN DRIVE HOME DRUNK AFTER WORK, COMING HOME FROM THE POLICE TAVERN, and they would ALSO FIRSTLY go after the people who drive reckless, who fail to stop at the stop signs, or the traffic stop lights, and go seriously after the impaired drunken drivers, deal with the unsafe cars whose brakes are squealing cause they need to be repaired.. etc. Cops , civil and public servants too often become perverse persons, unacceptable bullies still too. You and I still do not have to accept such crap.
Despite plunging sales in almost every sector, alcohol sales are on the rise in Ontario, British Columbia and in other provinces over last year . If you drive at twice the legal alcohol limit you are at least 30 times more likely to cause a road crash than a driver who hasn’t been drinking.
Nearly twice as many liquor stores, relatively cheap booze and a pricing system that effectively discounts drinks with more alcohol are contributing to a rise in hazardous drinking, says B.C.’s provincial health officer. The same is true in Alberta and other provinces.
More drunk drivers, motorists are hitting the sauce before hitting the road this holiday season too. About 1 percent of the drivers stopped are charged with impaired driving offences during the generally only one month long Police province wide drunk drivers check stop campaigns . Sadly there are plenty more drivers who often still do drank like fish get away during the rest of the year due to the limited number of police officers participating in check stops the rest of the year. We do thus know that very few of the actual people who are impaired and on the roads are caught by police. “The average person who is prepared to drive while impaired will do it about 80 times a year, repeat offenders causing the most problems.” “Drunk drivers are still; not getting the message, quite frankly, “The average blood-alcohol reading of those charged was .165, twice the legal limit of .08. The highest reading was .25, more than three times the limit, ” The drivers range between 19 and 59 years old. The average age is 35 but a dozen are over 40. (Older drivers) too seem to be more set in their habits and risk-takers also tend to be resistant to all education campaigns,” And during the same period over generally ten times more people now are being charged with failing to to wear seatbelts and Highway Traffic Act offences over impaired driving, even though it is drunk drivers, that causes many of the accidents? All now still Unsatisfactory.
More alcohol use is a concern for health-care professionals, since it means more deaths, illness, injuries and hospital visits, meaning added strain on the health-care system, and additional cost. “There’s 60 different ways in which alcohol can cause premature death and illness,”
PS: Look at this, due to the undeniable Recession, budget and tax cuts, Municipalities across Canada have been cutting back even on their services, snow clearing now too, which has been leading up to more car accidents, and cause the police cannot tell the truth about their employers, the police now lie, and divert the truth, saying that speeding vehicles were the cause of most of the accidents. In reality now also speeding also still is not the main reasons for accidents but driving while impaired is..
Here there are 2 main concerns, issues
1: The rising alcohol consumption, and the rising taxpayer’s costs of alcohol related sickness, accidents
2: The still inadequate police, RCMP response to impaired drivers, year around.
