Enforcement or education?

Retrospective enforcement (apparently supported by Brake!), or preventative education? The government proposes stiffer sentences for drivers who kill. As is usual in the illiterate field of traffic policy, this is a case of shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted. The inadequate driving test unleashes platoons of potential killers schooled in the anti-social rules of the road. They are desensitised to the system’s inherent inequalites, its contrived conflicts and the consequences of misjudgment. A stiffer driving test is what’s needed, along with stiffer education, and reform of the grotesque rules of the road.
