It is high time that the bar should give careful thought to that part of the traffic enforcement problem which is legal and judicial. It is time to examine the fundamental theory of traffic law, the reason for the existence of such a body of law, and to ask whether it is being administered in tribunals equipped with proper facilities and adequate knowledge. It is time to inquire what is the purpose of traffic law, and whether its administration is such as to help serve that purpose. Such inquiry will reveal some strange and disturbing facts.
