I also totally agree. Either law enforcement needs to be much, much, much, much, much, much improved or they need to raise speed limits.

I know some of the speed limits around here are absolutely ridiculous. 50 mph on a four lane highway that's not even in the city? C'mon Alabama you can do better than that.

I will not even mention the speed-zone-which-must-not-be-mentioned, for obvious reasons.

Damn that took some major balls !! the speed limit IMO should be 65 MPH. The State trooper in Fl run what they call a rolling road block all lanes are blocked by FLHP doing 55 MPH

^ that's even gayer!

That's like saying "we know the speed limit is unsafe, so we're going to force you to do it."

Yeah It suck getting caught up in the rolling road block But whats even worse is they sometime set up radar a few miles down the road with all available FLHP pursuit car lined up ready to pull your *** over.
When they did it on Easter Sunday they must of have 15 or more cars pulled over for speeding

The Huntsville PD does that from time to time. They call it "Back to Basics" or some similiar such crap. They park a ton of patrol cars near some of the places where people regularly exceed the speed limit, at rush hour. Then they write a million tickets a minute for a few hours. Makes the 'ville a whole pile of cash, I'm sure.

Re: Think 55mph speed limit is too slow? Apparently these kids for GA do to.

What are yuou talking about Wia? Here's a email I got from my dad....

Quote:
For those of us who like to drive fast.....

Pennsylvania State Police will launch a 30-day speeding ticket frenzy
throughout the state starting February 1, 2006. The State estimates that
22 million dollars will be generated in speeding tickets. 3 million will
go to pay Trooper overtime costs and benefits. There will be 150 State
Troopers on duty during all shifts patrolling the highways. Significant
radar enforcement will occur along the I-70, I-76, I-79, I-80, I-81,
I-83, I-84, and I-90 corridors.

Motorists traveling 6 mph or more above the limit will receive a ticket
and every State Trooper is supposed to pull a car over and write a
ticket every 10 minutes.

Pennsylvania has activated 50 new unmarked cruisers of various makes and
models for this pilot program to raise extra funds and meet mandated
quotas . The Pennsylvania State Legislators dreamed up this program to
help offset the additional funding required to hire 60 new Troopers. I
was told KDKA TV and Radio stations confirmed this. So be safe and don't
forget speeding tickets are on you.

You've been warned.

Yea its over with but I know 4 people that got pegged doing 65 in a 55 and were ticketed...

Haha...I came up on a cop tonight and I was doing 78 in a 65, I slowed down to 69 and rolled on by him...got around a bend and took back off again. I'm willing to bet that if I was in my stang, he would have pulled me over, but, I blended in all too well.

BTW, that was an awesome video and I wish I coulda helped make it.

when will these ****tards learn, its not speed that kills, its hitting the last or least animate object(most times a large wall or semi) that does you in.

Probably the Atlanta city government, on that stretch of road. Having driven on that road, I'm suprised somebody didn't shoot them. You've really got to do 75 or 80 to even have a chance of blending with the flow of traffic.

they do that on i-20 (the dumb part where speed limit is 55) right by my house. Get an unmarked to sit on the over pass shootin radar, then get 15-20 squad cars to sit in the pushes past the next hill.

They had a trooper for every lane on an overpass, radar ready, and at least 10 cars hiding behind the overpass just waiting.
