Should Broken-Down Cars On Highway Shoulder Be Destroyed By Use Of Laser Weapons Or Missiles?

The U.S. Government recently tested its space warfare capabilities by shooting down a failing satellite.

We’re tough!

Why stop there?

In Houston we have a Safe Clear program. This means cars stalled out by the side of the highway are towed away rather than allowed to remain on the shoulder of the road.

Why don’t we instead destroy these cars with laser weapons or missiles?

People could call a number and report that their car no longer runs.

People with cars to be removed by laser weapons would be asked to stand 15 feet away from the vehicle. The use of missiles would require people to stand at least 25 feet away.

 The lasers could be space-based and outsourced—Such as we see here with these Klingons. 

Or ground-based individual private contractors could be used such as demonstrated here—-


Or the city could add vehicles such as this one below to the municipal fleet.

Think how quickly this aggressive policy would remove dangerous vehicles from our roadways.

And maybe best of all—No more tow trucks racing past you at 90 mph to nail the next sucker for $300.

  1. So do you think the sat really wasn’t a failure? Perhaps the gov’t sabotaged it purposely so they’d have an excuse to conduct the test?

  2. No it was for real. It just worked out well as a test.

    Thanks for the comment. Overdue for me to visit your shop.
