A contributor to this week’s presstalk relates a story about her son being abused by, for the lack of a better term, a road rager over the weekend.

Drivers in the Knoxville area are no strangers to the horrible drivers that populate the streets of Knox County.

A casual observation of drivers on any day of the week makes one wonder what driving manual did these people study in order to get a Tennessee driver’s license?


Well, the manual is the same. It’s just that once motorists get their license, then the rules of the road are tossed away, along with the manual.

What the state needs to do is require that motorists take a written test each and every time they renew.

At least there wouldn’t be much debate over whether or not motorists know the rules.

Looking for the police to ticket bad motorists is not a likely solution either.

As officers from the Knox County Sheriff’s Department have said, if there were four times the officers on the road, that wouldn’t be enough to quell the rash of bad motorists.

So, the solution needs to be more education, whether voluntary or forced. Make all drivers retest and thus weed out some of the worst threats to human life.
