Most drivers seem unhappy with the traffic on our roads — speeding, reckless lane changing and inattentive drivers.
So let’s privatize the Florida Highway Patrol.
Perhaps treating them like we say we want to treat teachers.
First underpay them with no overtime pay, then cut their benefits.
Require them to stay professionally up to date without additional compensation.
Base their pay on performance.
The more tickets written the better job they must be doing, so pay bonuses based on the number of tickets.
Keeping our roads safe surely is as important as educating our children.
