Default Pfft!

Speeding tickets=Go fast tax



Any LEO's out there please don't argue this one. Just ask yourself when the last time you ticketed:



a. Someone doing 40mph on a freeway or

b. A soccer mom yapping on her cell phone whilst struggling to command a 6500lb suv?



My guess is not as often as the poor guy doing 15-20mph over the limit in the fast lane minding his own buisness.

Precisely.



It has nothing to do with traffic safety and has everything to do with an adrenaline rush and corrupt municipalities seeking easy revenue.



The problem with speedtraps is that they seriously further erode an already lowered respect for traffic laws. Go to the site and look up Wathena, KS. There you find comments about an "officer" that stops motorists in the 45 MPH zone and then claims they were doing "46 in a 30". Who can respect traffic laws with nonsense like that going on?

How quick do your reflexes have to be on a tricycle?

Heh heh. Some idiot moderated you down to 'off-topic' because you dared to post a link to a motorcycle test on a motorcycle site thread about speed traps. Heh heh.



Dear anonymous c0cksucking coward, a thread about speed traps on a motorcycle site is itself 'off-topic'.



If and when the new 'management' gets around to delivering all the wonderful promises I hope they ditch the stupid moderating function and force these stealth skumsuckers to identify themselves.

The new Z1000 so full of promise, so completely reviled by the British bike press for quirky/scary front end.



What gives Kawasaki?

I'm well aware of the argument you tried to make on here...hence my sarcastic response.

Alot of people dont utilize the hold function, they just leave the radar unit on. sure this alerts those with good radar detectors, but the ones without them still fall prey. If you want to be sneaky, you keep the unit on hold, and pop it when you see someone flyin...thats how you get the ones who consistently speed with radar detectors. Sean is on the right track, thats why you don't activate it on every vehicle that comes by. You learn to estimate a vehicles speed. if the speed limit is 55, you arent going to activate the radar unit on vehicles near the limit, only the ones appearing to be traveling at a high rate of speed. For me that would be 65+ in a 55.
