    There ought to be a law...

    Ask-The-Public topic: What new law would you like to see on the books?

    If you were a lawmaker, what do you think should be illegal (but isn't)?

    Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
    To war and arms I fly.

    A law that says any law congress passes they have to live by it rather than exempt themselves.

    The problem with lawyers being part of the law-making process is that they always find away to write another law to go around a law they already have written it's nuts.

    I would like to see a law for texting while driving. I would also like to see a law where you have to pass a test before you have kids!

    ditto with PA. I know there has been a butt load of money from CVNs issued for texting/talking while driving

    I don't know what I'd write for an entirely new law, but I'd modify Wisconsin's Move Over/Slow Down law. As I understand it, there is no set amount people have to slow down if they do not move over, making it a difficult law to enforce. I'd write it to require moving over if the adjacent lane is empty, and if not, reducing speed by 50%.

    Here in Oregon they have to slow to 25 if they can't get over.

    We also have a law against texting and driving.

    If I could make anything illegal it would be spandex for anyone 15 pounds overweight. We have a lot of bike riders here and they all wear those stupid spandex short thingies.

    I don't think we need a whole lot of more laws, but we need to enforce and follow the ones we have on the books already.

    I hope the state pf Texas cleans up how they do their driver licenses when it comes to suspendeding them for DWIs.

    It's also tough on poor people. They get a no insurance ticket because they don't have the money for insurance. Then, their license gets suspended. Furthermore, they get citations for their license being suspended because they don't have the money to reinstate their license. A ticket puts them further into debt they can't get out of.

    I've gotten to the point where I usually don't even write for a suspended DL anymore, unless it has a MANDATORY CONVICTION-ALR REFUSAL on the history. In which case it's a class B misdemeanor and I don't arrest for it. I don't like to tie myself up with nonsense.

    How about "Being an @sshole" with a specific section for habitual offenders.
    I think I used to have a copy of that one, somewhere.

    I have to tell you that my pet peeve is tinted windows. I'd like to see stronger punishments for that. Nothing more scary than walking up on a car that you can't see into!

    Also, fleeing and eluding needs to be a felony in ALL states. Period.
