As soon as I reach for the ignition key the probability of prosecution for some technical triviality rises manifold. At the same time, when the authorities, local or national, are seeking increased revenue the motorist is always looked upon as a soft option.
What is needed is to reassert in the minds of those concerned that motorists are ordinary citizens and a substantial proportion of the total population, that the driver is no less law-abiding in his car than out of it, that the petty misdemeanours which he commits may well be legal anachronisms unrelated to conditions of the 1960s, and that blame may be attributable to a failure of planning, construction or investment by the authorities themselves. The remedy is an organisation such as you describe, or a few more establishment-shaking Orpingtons, or both.
