Have to agree with the last sentence.



"THEY" won't be satisfied until the roadways are computer-controlled rubber beltways safely propelling us to our destination.



And. After spending the weekend in Philly/S.Jersey traffic, I would have welcomed the respite. Plug me in, and drive me home.

In Illinois, I've been advised that the photo ticket is generally considered to be the equivalent of a parking ticket, not a moving violation. This makes sense. They just stick parking tickets under your wiper. One or two that blow away or get ignored don't get any attention. 20 will get your car booted or impounded.

This all falls under the heading of law enforcement for profit. The Municipal Revenue Enhancement Officials (formerly known as police) operate "mobile revenue centers" (formerly known as patrol cars). In my little burg they will no longer respond to gas station drive offs, but they are all over the temporary "no left turn" infractions at $135 a pop. The way they act they must get a cut. The twit that was operating out of the parking lot in front of work yesterday almost caused 2 accidents in his pursuit of the criminal element. law enforcement at its finest.

1. speed limits are designed to prevent accidents and damage to/loss of property/life.





2. there are more responsible ways to influence the legal dynamics of one's community than to simply ignore the laws one doesn't agree with.





if you choose to break the law and possibly endanger other motorists/pedestrians, that's irresponsible - but at least own up to it when you get caught.
