    I saw a woman in a newish Honda B-RV.

    She drives around with the seatbelt routed around the back of the seat.

    This is far from an exception, but seriously.
    1. You see multiple crashes first hand on these roads.
    2. You see multiple crashes in the local press.
    3. You actively seek to defeat systems in place that manufacturers have spent millions of dollars on to help keep you safe.

    Humans are the stupidest of all animals. No competition. Even lemmings are smarter.

      How do all these cars end up on their roofs? I live where there is snow 5 months a year and heavy city traffic and we don’t have cars ending up on their roofs!

    Why do police never do road checks or speed traps during the times when people die on the roads? Ridiculous. For the cops who don’t know that’s between 12am and 6am, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday.
    Instead they catch commuters on the way to and from work where accidents don’t happen like in the school zone in Savanah…I have never seen a kid on the road in that area as they are all driven or bused to school. I haven’t seen an accident there either.
    Cops have crime/traffic accident analytics but never seem to use them to do appropriate proactive policing.

      Asking the RCIPS to do too much. Really just need a revamp on ALL officers in all levels of work. And need proper training. The officers need to be law-abiding citizens before they can go and dictate what other people should be doing.

        Probably shouldn’t be recruiting half the clowns they do recruit. Can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.

      Ya but on the other hand, if the cops do road blocks to check for drunk drivers, people complain “They are stopping my freedom of movement’, but if they don’t do them, then the Police are slacking.

      As for school zones, it’s like 100 feet of road. What the problem? Slow down by the schools for about 5 seconds of your commute. How hard is that?

      They na ga do speed checks where it matters because then they’d have to stand in the sun instead of conveniently hidden in the shade of trees along a 40 mph zoned highway that literally 98% of vehicles do 55 on anyway.

      Who wants to actively hunt for fish when you can shoot them in a barrel? Some of these traffic like the infamous batman act like they getting a cut.

      I can assure you that the Savannah school zone is an accident blackspot. I’ve personally attended at least 5 accidents there as a first responder.

      The point about children not being around is true, but this place needs several traffic units in operation 24/7. Those traffic cars should always be on the road, one in each district as a minimum.

    Most drivers never seem to have had an issue with that pole.
    Now then, given the time of the morning & circumstances, one would assume a toxicology test has been done on the driver?
