Not sure if this is a good idea for this small town. We have enough traffic now on 455 and this will bring in more.

Glad that LEO is on the job. Can you believe this CRIMINAL was going a FOUR MILES PER HOUR over the speed limit !! They should have thrown the book at him and tasered him a few times.

I am being sarcastic..........

And LEOs wonder why people don't respect them. Deal with REAL crime and serious dangerous drivers. But I guess it is easier to pull over someone going 4 mph over than to do real work

39 in a 36 zone ? Sounds like Barney Fife was on duty.

Ya gotta love Mont Verde and Howey! If you're 4 mph over the speed limit, you're a hardened criminal! If you go at or just below the limit, you're a suspected drug carrier! I've always enjoyed blowing the carbon out of my car just outside their city limits!

Get a life officer Fife ..39 in a 35 ? He probably asked Sheriff Andy for his bullet that day. What will he do when the Bella Collina celebrities start going 120 in their Ferraris from Bella Collina around CR 455 ?

Isn't that the truth.
Coming through Apopka one day, I had a motocycle cop behind me (I was doing the speed limit)people were blowing by me, driving down the suicide lanes etc...but when SHE passed me, she turned and looked at me and shook her head. I mean ... wtf?!!!
