  1. Accidents, well, things will happen, because of inattentiveness, but there’s no way to prevent that. How do you prevent inattentiveness? Having roadblocks to check licenses, insurance documents and such isn’t going to prevent accidents.

    • It’s all about MONEY!! like any of these documents will make anyone a better driver. Fix some of the damn roads then maybe we can cut down on some accidents.
