Must be anywhere but the east metro. Folks driving 10-15+ over the 60mph limit on I-494 and I-694 near Woodbury and nary a trooper in sight.

Thought they were focusing on west metro around the forth. I didn't see any during my mid morning travels on the 3rd and 5th. Got stopped last year though after eating breakfast for over the posted but let go with a warning from a nice female officer in Zimmerman

Funny you would warn the lawbreaker to be careful to avoid a ticket rather than because they are risking peoples lives with their actions.

I guess we all have varying degrees of selfish behavior.

WA state has state police out looking for anything to ticket every day of the month. There is no letup.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

The idea of avoiding a ticket might actually get people to slow down...maybe.

Here's hoping traffic police all over the world are catching drunk and reckless drivers. I don't want to share the road with them.

Most of the time, the police are not there for reckless driver like the one zig-zaging cutting everybody or somebody going 80 on a 45 mph zone?

I limit my speed to 5 over every where I drive. With all the impatient drivers out there going 10+ over, I'm invisible.

Same in Ontario. The old expression from Police was and still is: "8 over is great, 9 you're mine" (MPH not Km/h)

A week long summer revenue collection drive was conducted in mid-July in five states. As I expected, there has been no competent statistical analysis of the highway death rates before, during, and after the shakedown, I mean "crackdown."
5 Southeastern States Launching Traffic Crackdown

As for me, I rarely drive more tan 5 mph over the posted limit on surface streets- and rarely more than 10 over on limited access highways. As for the ridiculous posted advisory speeds on curves and access ramps, I subtract 5 mph from the posted speed and then double it to get a realistic velocity...
