  1. I see in this city a lot of traffic violation looks like the neighbors drive in the way either like they are in their Country or they don’t have driver license
    Also a lot of drivers abused speeding
    This city is dangerous and scary to drive
    I see a lot of people driving like they own the streets we really need a traffic cameras
