Letter: Traffic violations threaten your life

Could be your family or friend who could be killed by these ignorant and despicable, uncaring people.

To the editor:

Re: Passing on double and single solid lines.

People who pass on these sections of our highways must be fined $500 per solid line crossed. Could be your family or friend who could be killed by these ignorant and despicable, uncaring people.

As for commercial licensed people who know better: Have the fine be $1,000 per solid line crossed. This may deter and prevent many accidents and the loss of their family or friends.

Merge lanes, racing to beat semis, having nowhere else to go—you lose—DOH (Dead on Highway).

Only a fool, a no-mind, would gamble with the lives of their family or others.
