Sumthin' like that!
I just think that Americans need to get over their attitude that driving is a RIGHT. . . It's not a right, it's a privilidge. I personally think that the privilidge to drive should cost a one time fee of app. $1500. This cost would go to offset an intensive two day training, one in the classroom and one on a road course specifically designed for the purpose. Then a test is given over the info covered. If you fail you get to retake the test (but not the two days) at no further (or at least a very minimal) fee. If you still fail, (or let's also add if you don't want to pay the $1500), then you're issued a very restrictive license that bars you from driving interstates, in adverse conditions, etc.)
This would ensure that drivers are for the most part well aware of their responsibilities, AND I don't think anyone who pays for a license in such a manner would necessarily want to disobey the law and jeapordize the license.
Of course in a system as such, left lane limits should be higher and more violations of slower traffic keep right should be issued.
I know, I'm a radically conservative, liberal fascist!
