The story out of the west coast town of Stephenville regarding a 27 year-old female driver scares the crap out of me.

The women, who owes $11,000 in outstanding fines was caught driving while suspended, driving an unregistered vehicle and driving with out insurance. She was given a raft of new tickets and had her car impounded for 30 days. Is that enough?

I know nothing about her past driving record but the fines, the unregistered and lack of insurance speak volumes about her I do not give a $%$^ attitude. Screw the rules, screw the laws and screw you.

How many other unregistered, uninsured freeloading idiots are there on our roads? How many uninsured vehicles are involved in collisions on our roads every year?  But it's not the uninsured drivers who pick up the millions in annual damages caused by those accidents. It's honest licensed drivers who pay through licensing fees and increased insurance premiums.

We need stronger deterrents and stiffer penalties for these selfish louts who think they are above the law or just coud care less.

And the courts are impotent to do anything about it, except perhaps jail time. And, when someone like this loses their license, they go to the appeal board and in jig time have thier license back so they can drive to work or whatever. Teach them a lesson once and for all.

The government needs to show leadership and legislate effective, punitive punishments.
