Letter: Poor driving leads to more accidents

A few days ago I heard on the news that the accident rate is up better than ten percent. That doesn’t surprise me, the way that some people drive. I see people blow through stop signs. If you drive the speed limit you almost get run over.

I would like to know why Arizona doesn’t want to pass a law against texting while driving. There is enough distraction while driving. I have noticed that a lot of people don’t bother to slow down in construction zones. People need to realize that fines double in construction zones. People need to pay more attention while driving. Driving is a full time job. However the fines would really get people’s attention.
