Traffic cops go undercover: get priorities right!
In the last five months, undercover traffic police cops have issued more than 900 summonses to errant drivers, passengers and pedestrians.
Goodness, pedestrians too?
Traffic Police, rarely seen on our roads and expressways, will now be even rarer that they have gone undercover. Even then with their limited manpower, I hope they will make it a priority to target dangerous drivers instead of minor infringements and pedestrians.
Dangerous drivers advertise themselves with overly loud exhaust, outlandish spoilers and are under the illusion that they are F1 drivers wannabe. Nothing personal but weeding out this dangerous group of people who think they own the roads should be TP’s top priority.
The other category of drivers that should be targeted are the reckless ones who cut across multiple lanes abruptly to exit an expressway. This also includes those who cut across double white lines to join an expressway, putting motorcyclists at great risk.
The third group of drivers are those serial queue jumpers who, faced with a long queue, would drive right up to the front and jump the queue. They not only endanger other vehicles but also cause traffic to slow down.
These are the priorities for TP in my opinion. Not chasing after pedestrians for jaywalking certainly! Or cyclists on footpaths.
I don’t want a Big Brother society.
