Waste… of… public… money.
You’ve seen them… these are the signs that police departments put in strategic locations (near schools, interstate construction, large gangbangs, etc.) in the sad and vain hope that any of us give a damn. I always thought this was why we had speedometers in our cars.
“Oh,” you’re going to say, “But they have cameras on them, and you’ll get a speeding ticket in the mail!“
Bullshit. I’ve stopped next to a couple of these devices and inspected them thoroughly. No cameras. And even if there were cameras on them, don’t you think that’d be an easy one to fight?
The really sad part about these big wastes of energy is that some people are actually dumb enough to slow down for them! Like they’re saying “Sorry! I didn’t know I was being a reckless asshole, but this digital display has shown me the error of my ways!” Oh, yeah, I didn’t already know I was going 98 through a school zone! Thanks for telling me, because let me tell you, I truly care!
No. I blow by these things at 15+ over the posted limit and laugh. Every time. And I’m fine. The last speeding ticket I got was issued by a state cop who was sitting behind a mound of dirt 5 years ago. And I was going 110.
