I don't care if someone is here legally or illegally when it comes to hit and run. I think this isRead More a great system suggestion. I wish I had a way to install a GoPro system in my car that would capture three minute segments in 360 degrees. Kind of like a black box in aircraft but also have an image file in addition to a systems analysis file. This sure would help in determining blame in an accident....

This is funny a complete political segue for a Commi Democrat / Liberal to introduce more ways toRead More apply taxes. i.e. additional $15.00 DMV fee to pay for Yellow Alerts.

This is a great idea but why do drivers hit and run I believe many don't have insurance or are underRead More the influence of drugs and alcohol no drivers license or registration, undocumented and drivers with warrants. We have the technology to take many drivers off the road remember it's a numbers game with hit and runners. How about on your license tags we start putting chips that send out a signal when your insurance is cancelled let's say after 15 days or license is suspended or a warrant is issued that would alert other drivers and law enforcement via the electronic road alert signs.think about this when you drive in the fast tract lanes your transponder sends and receives a signal which chargers your account but also alerts CHP that you don't have a transponder or possibility are a single driver in violation of the law. Along with a camera that would only take a picture for violators. Believe it or not most of the technologies are already in place in most cases we just need to combine and in prove the technologies already in place. This would also deter drivers from stealing your tags because there's is expired. This is a much different world we live in then years past. I was born in the 40s and raised in the 50s we had respect for others and family and not to say most of us don't but for the ones few that don't respect life and would leave you to die on the road side let's get them off the road.this technology could also block your cell phone from working if you don't have a hands free device in place. One last thing start noticing how many drivers just don't stop at a red light or stop sign they just slow down and roll through what don't they understand that Stop means Stop.

4 agencies, 8 hours and 1 arrest. Money well spent.
Reality Check July 23, 2014 at 10:10 am
Redwood City recently had about a dozen or so officers work a 7-hour checkpoint (which probablyRead More makes a full shift's worth of overtime with before and after set-up, clean-up). The result? 1,076 drivers screened and 1 (one!) DUI. Wow! 1/1076 = less than one tenth of one percent ... or < 0.001.

How ridiculous. That's like arresting Amtrak for all of the times the cops pick up peopleRead More transporting marijuana in big suitcases in their baggage cars (it happens frequently---you'd be surprised). Amtrak has nothing to do with that----they're just transporting baggage. Same thing here---FedEx is just transporting a package; they have no clue what its contents are.

Political grandstanding

Meanwhile the national news networks seemed to miss the story when Google got caught in a similarRead More scheme, actually with more evidence of complicity. Not easy to find the story but here are two sources: http://www.wired.com/2013/05/google-pharma-whitaker-sting/all/ http://www.tomsguide.com/us/Larry-Page-Canadian-Peter-Neronha-online-pharmacies-Justice-Department,news-12323.html The story was mentioned briefly on the Leo LaPorte show and in more depth by John Batchelor (who noted that Clinton DOJ henchwoman Jamie Gorelick was brought in to negotiate the half-billion $ settlement; Gorelick now sits on the Google board.

Genius. since he is in banking I suppose the US taxpayers will have to bail him out. Not quite TARPRead More scale so I guess the proper bailout would be sending him into the private screening room with a bunch of strippers.
