I got dibs on Higdon's pull-out couch in Daytona for Spring Break next year.

I am glad someone else is beginning to see the problem of electing "good business men to run the business of Government" The Land of thr free is fast disappearing through neglect and greed. Whether it be the Left or the Right, they have all taken on the air of Fascists trying to make us all in their own image. The only folks who deserve to lead us would not have the job for love nor money. Go Higdon.

Nicely done!!



BTW, in my opinion, the root cause of this issue is the insurance industry's lobbyists being able to force artificially low speed limits upon us through the use of their campaign contributions. The lobbyists pretend that they want lower speed limits to ensure the "safety" of the people, however, they're more than happy to have their employers increase our insurance premiums because of our "unsafe" speeds on these very same roads.



Stick to the man, Higdon!

Good Story!



OTOH, we're gonna pay for the invasion of Iraq one way or the other. The Feds are gonna put the screws to the states, the states are gonna bring the municipalities to their knees and then you know who ends up with the debt load on our backs (for the next ??? years).



Think of your fines as the cost of living in a "free" country where m'biking is almost a right. In Iraq you'd pay with a bullet in your leg/arm/back/whatever.

Just a bit quicker than your average surplus Russian-made RPG.

As a recovering BMW addict, it is GREAT to see Higdon again! I work in the insurance bidness and yes, all your suspicions are right. Tickets = backdoor rate increase.

First, I am amazed that the famous Mr Higdon lives in my own little corner of the world.



Second, as a DC Police Officer, let me say that the photo radar cameras are first about $$$$$ and everything else is a long second.



One of those cameras caught me on a police motorcycle speeding. I had to go and fight the ticket ($100).



The hearing examiner first tried to argue with me that I couldn't have gotten the ticket.



He then looked at the ticket thoughfully for a minute and dismissed it.



Just remember, in the UK and most of Europe, those same cameras are used to take away people's licenses and convict the driver of traffic offienses the same as if a police officer pulled them over.

Best writing in this 1/2 baked cyber rag yet. They tried to install cameras in Omaha but the public would have nothing of it. I'm sure KPaul would love to have the citizens made safer with these cameras. They'd have to outlaw full coverage helmets so that they could get a good ID of your face. The next logical step would be to tax us for sewage load. Cameras in every bathroom to count the amount of #1's and 2's being flushed.
