STATE TROOPEI00 GIVE YOU A TICKET-IT COUI00 SAVE LIVES (Editor's Note: The following article is authored by Com- missioner William O. Newman of the Kentucky Department of Public Safety. It was written following two es- pecially tragic weekends wherein 36 Kentucky motor- ists were killed. It epitomized the feeling of many motor vehicle and traffic law en- forcement administrators.) By: W. O. Newman, Commis- sioner, Kentucky Department of Public Safety. Maybe you're one of them. Are you one of the people who call me on the telephone or write me a letter to tell me my troopers are stopl)ing motomts and giving them tickets for "no reason at all?" I wouldn't know--you never give your name! You tell me you're a good citizen and a safe driver just using Interstate 64 for what it was intended-speed. And that "dumb cop" gave you a ticket. You break my heart! I hope the next time you're tearing down the road at. 85 miles per hour that trooper catches you again. I hope he eS you another ticket and traffic judge takes your license away. I hope he catch- es you before you smash into a concrete bridge abutment at 85 mph and he has to help pry your lifeless body out of Jmt crushed speed machine foms. I hope we can teach you a lesson with a ticket so maybe you won't cause a wreck and cost somebody else his or her life. You really break my heart telling me you don't have time to go to court about that ticket. I wish you could come with me to the scene of a wreck sometime. I wish I could make you stand and ,watch a man writhe in the gravel on the shoulder of a highway while he waits for an ambulance that will get there too late to do anything but carry him to the morgue! I wish I could make you help scrape the bits of bone and flesh of a whole family off the asphalt and into bas- kets. You'd vomit -just like my troopers do; but you'd think differently the next time you climbed into that car of yours. You said you were driving safely when the trooper stopped you. The road was clear and there was no harm in edging over the speed limit a few miles per hour -- you said. I'm really impressed with your ability to judge road conditions. I'm only sorry a trooper wasn't at that place a few months ago when a man with a wife and four children had a blowout at over 80 mph. He might have slowed him down; and his children would still have a father and his wife a husband. Oh, am I getting you mad again? That man might have been mad ff the trooper had stopped him. He might have written me a letter. But he'd be alive! Your letter doesn't bother me. friend. What bothers me -900a LOGAN COUNTY FINES Lynn D.

You're probably going to get back behind the wheel of your car thinking you own the road and nothing can happen to you. You don't think about the other people on the road who want to go on living. And who gave your kid driving lessons. You? Then he's probably gotten a couple of tickets, too. It's no won- der he weaves in and out of traffic, speeds and, leaves strips of burned rubber at stop lights. I hope we catch him, too, mister; before we have to call you and your wife to come identify his body at the morgue. I don't want to watch you crying and wishing you hadn't let him have a car until he learned to drive maturely. And you say you want my troopers to let you off with a .... What you really want is for us to stop doing our jobs! You want us to let you go until you meet another guy just like you- head on! I wish you could come with me to a wreck and see the seared body of a victim after the fire department has f'mished its job of extinguish. hag 15 gallons of flaming gasoline. I wish you could go with me to her home and help me tell her husband that his wife isn't coming home because some idiot ran her off the road while trying to pass her.
