Overall bumpers help things as is.  Best comment was how, with the new proposal/CIK bumper system, guys would be penalized when at the start they are punted into the back of someone in front.  New CIK proposal seems to make more new problems than it solves.  Comments about not being able to see all the rough driving aren’t justification for any position.  You put marshals at several corners, let them move around a bit, and nail the  guys that you do catch with significant penalties.  So you don’t catch every one of them?  So what?  You put some hotshoe factory guy at the back, just like anyone else, and it sends a message to everyone.  Enforcing some of these rules about rough driving would not stop all of it, but it would be a good start.
