You know, the ones on the little trailers with a radar and a sign that lights up and flashes at you if you're 1 MPH over the posted limit.

I hate those fucking things. And I sure hope they don't come equipped with a traffic cam, cuz I invariably flip them off when they flash at me.

Ooooooooooooooh, I'm doing 37 in a 35. I'm SUCH a hooligan. Kiss my ass.

I always speed up when I see those damn things.

Yep. There is one on a cloverleaf that I frequent lately. If I go the posted speed on my bike, I can't hold my chosen line and lean angle.

Yeah. I try and see how high I can get them.

Invariably, some guy with a flag or a shovel going under my truck, screws up the best speed I probably could have gotten.

Rat bastards!

But there's always another down the road...

Two specific places that I don't screw around in when it comes to speed: construction and school zones.

However, for these speed monitors placed out in BFE, etc, I gives a rats ass about 'em.

Same. Wink ( I was making sport). If there is "activity" I slow down, but when there is nothing going on, I play.

And if Johnny Law gets me, it's a good get and I'll take the hit.

Roger that. Cool

Same here, though my license plate and company badge have gotten me out of several tickets.

As an interesting (to me, anyway) historical sidebar, the speed record on Harlem Avenue as you get south of Palos Heights, IL is a bit over 180mph.

I don't know who the record holder was, but I knew the cop who said he clocked him on radar. I didn't think radar of the time (late 1960's) could record that high a speed, and questioned the cop on that, but he swore it was true.

When I was a cop, several area depts. wasted money on these contraptions.
At least one was stolen.
Others were vandalized. It seems the deep cycle batteries inside the thing was the target.
If you look closely at them, you will see a heavy steel bar that locks both wheels and keeps it from being stolen.
When my dept. got one, we hated the damn thing. Towing it and setting it up was a pain in the ass. It was mainly used to placate chronic whiners who bitched about speeding.

When I see one it's usually hammer down time.




"Stupid people proliferate because this world has been made safe enough they survive long enough to procreate."

"The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people."
"Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy."
"I did," said Ford, "it is."
"So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't the people get rid of the lizards?"
"It honestly doesn't occur to them. They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates the government they want."
"You mean they actually vote for the lizards."
"Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course."
"But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?"
"Because if they didn't vote for a lizard, then the wrong lizard might get in."

Reminds me of a friend of mine who used to race motorcycles. He relocated into the state where I was living and had to take the tests for driver license.

The examiner pointed out the course, defined by traffic cones, stop signs, etc. and told Rick to drive the motorcycle around the course while the examiner observed.

Rick just looked at him and asked, "What's the lap record?"

Those things are supposed to give you your speed?

Huh...all I've ever seen them say is "SLOW DOWN" in big flashing letters.

Those I see in my area aren't that accurate, some varying almost 5mph each time I pass them. None of them read low.

They wouldn't be so bad if they didn't start seizure mode as soon as you go one mile an hour over the limit, and it's always at the bottom of a hill, too. The ones we got here also have red and blue lights that start going off. The only way they could be more chickenshit, is if they actually sent out tickets, and I'm sure some Law & Order asshole is just stroking himself into a frenzy trying to figure out how to do that here.
