Attempt To Resurrect 'Careless Driving' Bill

The Salt Lake Tribune gets the quote of the day, today. They paraphrase the sentiments of Jenkins, the Sponsor of the 'Careless Driving' bill that got slapped down by the house. As I suspected, Jenkins didn't care at all about increasing the speed limit. He probably put it in the bill to make the whole thing more palatable to drivers.

"Sponsor Scott Jenkins, R-Plain City said he didn't so much mind the House hacking out the increased speed provision, but was upset over some of the other cuts. "The part that hurts is [taking out] the careless driving part."
Well, duh!
