Many times In this column I have pleaded for sane and sensible enforcement of traffic laws. We must have officers on our highways and streets to properly enforce the regulations pertaining to driving. More, we must have judges In our courts who can appreciate the danger Involved when people become reckless in their driving habits. Recently, in my own county, two cases of drunken driving were dismissed by the court This is not only discouraging, but it Is a deplorable condition and one that should not exist. When the evidence clearly points to the fact that drivers were picked up because of drunken, reckless driving and that the officers were unbiased in their opinion, the court should enforce the laws on the statute books. It Is the duty of every citizen to protest lenient decisions on the enforcement problem. Leniency only encourages the man who has no respect for the rights of others and who, on the highway. Is a menace to the safety of ourselves and our children. Please, Mr. Citizen, help enforce the traffic laws.
