END OF THE ROAD FOR SPEED TRAPS? “Politicians, driver advocacy groups and even the police are trying to outlaw speed traps, not only because they’re annoying, but because when speed limits are too low, roads become more — not less — dangerous.”
All you have to do is provide that all traffic-ticket revenue goes to the state’s general fund. No more speed traps.
Plus: “Less surprisingly, a CBS station in Detroit hosted an Internet poll asking if drivers support or oppose an 80 m.p.h. statewide speed limit, and thus far about two-thirds of voters are in favor.” That’s because more than 2/3 of drivers go that fast anyway.
