Why only school zones? Why only a $25 fine? Their useshould be completely banned while driving. People look ridiculous. Sign of the times. Societics with their Hummvies & huge trucks the park either over curbs or between 2 spaces. Then the morons that do not signal. Ridiculous.

It's about time something is being done about all those parents/people especially women that "yak and yak" away while they speed and in a couple of cases i witnessed eating cereal or something out of a bowl while dropping off their kids in the morning! Oh and perhaps our kids are worth more then 25.00 or 50.00 dollars...don't you think???

There is no reason for this type of legislation. It is unthinkable and unbelievable that such a measure could even be considered!
