Enforce the traffic laws for safety’s sake

I think that the government should try to do more to enforce traffic. I know that the government has already started keeping pedestrians safe, but I am also worried about the safety of bikers and drivers.

On several occasions my parents have almost been in accidents because of reckless drivers. When I was riding with my aunt and uncle, I was in an accident because of a drunk driver. I’ve also seen people who ignore bikers and have almost hurt them.

It’s not just a one way thing, though. Not too long ago, there was a biker who used the crosswalk to cross and almost scuffed my mother’s car. In short, people are sometimes reckless and ignore traffic laws.
