There are so many people texting, using cell phones or running red lights that are creating problems for other drivers. Since more policemen are going to be hired, they should put some of them in plain clothes, on motorcycles, with camera helmets. They can drive up and catch people in the act. The lawbreakers should be fined $1,000. Three fines and you lose your license for a year. The fines could be used to pay on the pensions that are causing trouble for so many towns.
