Distracted drivers

The biggest threat to the driving public is the motorist who isn't paying attention to the task at hand -- operating a 3,000 pound projectile moving at 65mph. Every day I see dozens of female motorists gabbing away on cell phones, completely oblivious to the world around them. My traffic unit issues over 150 citations a week for this but the problem continues unabated.

These individuals are responsible for the overwhelming majority of rear-end collisions, and occasionally cause a serious wreck with life-threatening injuries.
