Great ‘roadblock’

Kudos to the driver of the PCK Subaru on the Diego Martin Highway, who on the morning of January 22, by driving a foot to the left, effectively frustrated the driver of a vehicle who was hell bent on using the shoulder as his own personal freeway.
While 99.9 per cent of the drivers sit patiently in bumper-to-bumper-to bumper traffic each morning, there are always the few idiots who refuse to wait.
Where are the much-touted Highway Patrol and traffic wardens? When is something going to be done about the illegal use of the shoulder? When a fatal accident happens?
There have been many suggestions put forward to curb this dangerous practice but they seem to have fallen on deaf ears.
Is it any wonder there is so much lawlessness in this country?
