    drunks and prescription druggies rule the roads here in florida. i know because i dodge them daily on my motorcycle. the police MUST start doing their jobs to make our roadways SAFE.... here's a suggestion; leave consenting adults IN THE PRIVACY OF THEIR OWN HOMES, ALONE and use those resources to monitor the roads. sounds crazy doesn't it?....
