Robert, take a look at how they drive in Virginia. I've seen them run a red from a half block back.

Gosh! If you were driving the posted speed limit, you'd still have $180.00 in your pocket. Go to Nolandville Texas. On 190 the speed limit is posted at 55 mph. If your over you get stopped, ticketed and get to see the Judge and explaine to him why you feel that you do not have to drive the posted speed limit. So far no one has been able to give him a good reason for speeding. I know, cause I'm been there.....

I-26 in Henderson County, NC, (just south of Asheville) is the same way. I believed what Mom (who used to live there) told me, so I've had no need to converse with judge on merits of the speed law.

The new incoming Sheriff of Pinal county, Sheriff Paul Babeu, is taking the photo radar down from his jurisdiction (hop this link works)

He has several reasons he feels that camera are a bad idea and primarily a money generating venture. I agree that we need to use LE wisely and prudently by using the best and latest technologies available. I'm not sure that cameras on the interstate really does that.

Locally DPS has been touting the lower accident rate since the cameras were put into use. Maybe so, but at the same time the total number of drivers decreased more than the decrease in accident rates. They probably both played a part. How much I don't think anyone can accurately measure.

Red light cameras, which in some intersection also will ticket you for speeding, are a great ideas and use of technology. There are certainly other areas that speed cameras are valuable. I just don't think that is true for the freeway system. Remember it was a traffic stop by LE that nabbed Timothy McVeigh, not a camera.
