SIOUX CITY - You do NOT have the "right" to drive any vehicle - it is a privilege. If you fail to obey the traffic laws, your privilege may be taken away. Don't speed, don't tailgate, stop for appropriate signs, yield to those with the right of way, signal your turns/lane changes, do not drink alcohol and drive a vehicle.
Those who taught us never indicated that following those rules was optional. It was pretty much a requirement if you intended to protect your privilege to drive a motor vehicle. You operate a motor vehicle in public, so don't expect privacy. When your private moments violate traffic laws and expose others to danger, you alone are accountable for your actions. On those occasions where other property is damaged and persons are injured or killed, your private moment has created a VICTIM. Speed cameras in a construction zone and red-light cameras at busy intersections are not such a bad thing for law-abiding drivers. The fines are set appropriately to act as a
deterrant. If safety for yourself and those who share the streets and highways with you isn't your first priority ... it ought to be. - Keith Pease
