LETTER: Higher fines would be better deterrent for loud drivers

To the Editor,

I cant believe how some people are driving in Port Alberni. Some drive like maniacs but get no fines. Some drive with loud muffler systems and step on the gas pedal to make noise and also speed, yet nothing gets done.

We have some cars going up Burde Street that are noisier then one can imagine. Nobody will do anything to stop this. Why don’t the RCMP do anything? Maybe they are not allowed to hand out tickets?

I don’t believe $100 fines are enough. I believe authorities should take the car away and fine these drivers $500, and take their licence away for six months.

Peter Rueschmann,
