to the editor:
words fail to describe a criminal lawyer's reaction to this tragedy ("harsher penalties in traffic crimes," aug. 18), along with the "situation that prevails" on the streets of nyc.
to put it succinctly, we have laws that are not enforced; so many drivers have "carte blanche" to do as they wish. need i tell you who is supposed to enforce the traffic laws? sad to say, of all the accounts, complaints and suggestions regarding the problem, rarely is there mention of the nypd's responsibility in the matter. until this reality is confronted, people will continue to die on our streets, and the rule of law will suffer another affront.
