Yeah, it's inherently flawed to think that punishment/fines will prevent people from doing stuff. If they think they can get away with it, they will try. There are also plenty of people that will act irrationally when they go through their "decision process" to speed/drink, etc. The problem is we keep trying to apply rational thoughts to this: "well, if I do this, it could result in that". So what is the solution, 1 highway patrol/trooper for every 10 people? It'll never work.
