Lately too many incidents have happened where drivers r tested positive for drugs n this has got to stop. They r endangering the lives of innocent people. The cops n not lawmakers have to get tough on them n mete out harsher punishment. Companies who hire lorry drivers must be held responsible for hiring incompetent drivers. I've seen too many heavy vehicles on highways speeding n overtaking. They seldom use the left lane, except for some. This has got to stop now n these vehicles must be equipped with cameras so they can be monitored... make that a priority n hefty fines imposed!

Must implement harsh penalization such as jail & ban from driving. Too many scenerio like tis. Harsher penalization so that tis will create a good example to others.
