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.

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.

Claud.

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...
