Can’t see it happening. But wait and see.

The driving infringement penalties are stiff enough.

The driving infringement penalties are stiff enough.

But does this stop bad driving?

Switzerland has about 50 road accident fatalities per million people per annum. In the UK we have around 54.

Contrast those figures with Greece, where they have 159 fatalities per million per year, and you can see that Switzerland has a far better safety record.

Is the death penalty be for driving infringements?

If you took out the motor bike fatalities that happen on the mountain roads in the summer then the record would be a lot better. A lot of Germans etc come to ride the roads on the weekends and a few dont go back. I know the police are trying to crack down on this because people dont actually break the law by speeding, they are just too fast for the tight corners witn a drop over the side.

what about skateboarding and roller skating

Why do they think they need to bring back the death penalty? Are there a lot of offences of the nature being discussed. We seem to have a problem in GB. (offences against children) Is there a comparison?

What are we supposed to be discussing?
Referendum for the Death penalty for murder or the present state of the driving infringement penalties
