Jail the best place for rot­ten driver

MY COM­MENT

The Queensland Times - - OPINION - SHANNON NEWLEY [email protected]

THE only an­swer for peo­ple like Kelvin Roma (page 3) is to do time be­hind bars.

As much time as pos­si­ble. Peo­ple with such lit­tle re­spect for the law can’t be kept off the roads any other way.

Not only does he have the gall to get back be­hind the wheel after be­ing dis­qual­i­fied many times, he then drives dan­ger­ously when he spots the po­lice.

And who knows what other shock­ing be­hav­iour he is com­mit­ting be­hind the wheel and never get­ting caught for.

The only way the pub­lic and other road users can be pro­tected from peo­ple like this is to have them be­hind bars.

Un­for­tu­nately he’ll be out on the streets again in a few months and based on the prece­dent set by him in in the past, I ques­tion what change to his be­hav­iour we ex­pect.

The best we can prob­a­bly hope for is that this stint in prison is enough of a de­ter­rent to do what pre­vi­ous pun­ish­ments have failed at and keep him off the road.
