They were probably licensed, insured and sober. Something should be done about this.

@Timber -- I agree. A well placed checkpoint would have prevented this whole scene.

Um yeah, a checkpoint to combat licensed, insured and sober motorists. How inane, yet a majority of traffic problems are associated with that group of drivers.
