My idea is...

Enforce 27 Mhz CB Radio regulations

Many of the comments listed here regarding CB radios could be taken care of if the FCC would just enforce the existing regulations.
Some that are ignored frequently -
4 watt maximum power output. You do realize that anyone can walk in off the street to just about any CB shop and buy a 1000 watt 'kicker'?
No tampering with CB radio internals - ignored by every CB shop in the country
CB shops advertising their services every 5 minutes on channel 19? Also banned by regulations
Foul-mouthed trash talking? Banned by regulations already
Long-winded preachers who can't get air time on FM and tie up channel 19 for 30+ minutes with their particular brand of preaching? FCC regulations limit any broadcast to 5 minutes or less if I recall correctly.

If the FCC would actually enforce these regulations, most of the other comments about it would be taken care of.

I know the FCC can't be everywhere - but most of the usage violations occur in the nation's largest cities, where anyone with a CB radio can hear them. CB shops are almost always next to a truck stop advertising their services on the radio any time they don't have a customer.
