Put speeders in jail

The RCIP spoke recently about the automobile being a dangerous weapon when speeding. I have perhaps a radical proposal for people to consider. I would suggest jail time for reckless speeding.

Allow me to explain further. For speeders over 70 mph – which is well above the max 50 mph allowed in the country – mandatory jail with no excuses or mitigating circumstances, period. Say, one week in jail upon conviction for reckless speeding. Of course this would include motorcycles as well as other vehicles.

Have a number of people spend a week in jail and the message will strike home to everyone.

This would get the attention of irresponsible drivers in the country and perhaps save lives.
