may be we ought to educate driver better, teach them about awareness and responsibility to the public. this punishment is handed out to Mr or Mrs XXXX for driving down these streets like a nutter especially out side schools. we have this system in the UK it called a drivers awareness course it usually lasts one day, or you can have a fine and points on your licence. but you need the police to enforce this. as for putting funny signs on the floor, well what about the people that can't read or write? or bad eye sight? or who just could not care less?. but good luck with this experiment!

Is this not the first time a so called captain has jumped ship at the first sign of a bit of trouble, I was on the understanding that the captain should be the LAST one off, the words that spring to my mind are “dereliction of duty” “ incompetence” “neglect” and finely “spineless”. I am no expert but why on gods’ planet why would you tell every body to stop in their cabins when the ship is starting to list to one side? If you need to abandon ship, it would be common sense to have every body at the muster stations ready to get on a lifeboat quickly and safely. Either way this is a tragic loss of life that could have been obverted. My heart felt condolences to the families that have lost there loved ones. As for the so called captain, well hang your head in shame !!

I can't believe that no one has heard or not seen any thing, very odd, but when or if they catch the culprit, may be they should give them the bill for repairing the toilets, and then put there pictures in the local paper to! name and shame them.

It doesn't seem that he's learned his lesson having been nicked 10 times, so why don't the punishment go up say 6 months in prison ? and if he does it again 8 months and so on.
