Fear-Driven Commentary

The Journal Sentinel's in-house conservative columnist recently worried that technology indeed might someday make it impossible to start one's car if one had been drinking alcohol.


Now another column about how Illinois state troopers can use radar-and-camera rigs to nail speeders in construction zones.


I see a pattern here.

Why are some people afraid that technology could be deployed to deter law-breaking and dangerous behavior by motorists who would abuse the privilege of licensed driving?

With his role being diminished, at least you won't have to be bothered as often by the Journal-Sentinel's token conservative.

Guess they didn't have progressive ones to cut back on.
