This is one reason I hate seeing chp parked on highways with radar guns. Seems quite the distraction and adds an unsafe element to high speed driving.

I will always contest that speeders weaving through traffic cause chaos but the flow of straight traffic should not suggest speed causes havoc.

When the ticketed speeder merges back on after his ticket two cars are put at risk minimum.

Think about it. Radar guns on freeways is only a scam. Visual recklessness does not require a radar gun.

I totally agree!! I've had to merge over to the left super quick because of a just-ticketed driver trying to get back on the freeway. Not safe! If I'm ever pulled over on the freeway (knock on wood), I'll get off on the next exit and let it happen on city streets.
