People just drive to fast and don't pay attention. For Officers writing tickets down there it's common to right speeds in the mid 80's.

Didn't the state just release a report citing how we've had a significant DROP in accidents and deaths (due of course to their Gestapo-like traffic enforcement tactics). Most of the deaths last year were either alcohol related OR the occupants weren't wearing seatbelts. I don't really care if someone dies b/c they didn't wear a seatbelt...it's common sense that should mandate you putting on a seatbelt when travelling 60+ mph in 5Klb hunk of metal. 29 has been a dream to drive ever since they increased the speed...don't change it because of stupid people

If the State was truly concerned about our safety on 29 they would install a few trafic lights at intersections such as Plank road. But they won't because it costs money. Instead, they will increase patrol and write tickets to make up for lost revenue. Isn't it funny how there wasn't this great concern for our safety before the budget crisis?

Of course YOU dont care until its someone YOU love or someone YOU care about. Have a little compassion for those who HAVE lost someone this way. Geez.
