Safety should be the focus, not whether someone is driving 2 miles over the posted limit. If someone is driving at a speed or in a manner that is unsafe for the conditions (even if its within the posted limit) by all means, ticket away! What ever happened to good old fashioned common sense?

They ought to drive the speed limit when they drive also,so many times I have been passed by a Trooper going way over the speed limit on the Highway. What about that?

I was going to say something about that too, along with the fact that the more tickets they give the more revenue they add to the budget. I just didn't want to sound like I was ranting.....

I have a problem with a certain person in Fairfax who feels a need to post a large sign provoking local law enforcement over speed enforcement. One side of the sign associates the cost of Not enforcing the speed limit to be $42,800 - like tax payers pay a police officer / sheriff's salary only to ticket the same local tax payers for speeding in their own town. This old bat needs to move a his own back country road where he won't have to worry about people speeding because nobody would travel that way.
The Same person doesn't seem too concerned about the safety of our local firefighters and EMT's as he is opposed to cutting or pruning a maple tree in the corner of his yard that obstructs the view of firefighters/rescu workers at they try to pull out of the station driveway.
If this person is SO CONCERNED about the safety of people in the area, he should look in his own front yard first!!! I won't even go into the driving distraction the illegal road side sign presents.

Didn't two cops run over some poor guy on a back-road near Brattleboro a month ago or so, the second guy doing it after the first guy radioed that he hit someone? Probably going too fast is my guess.... Maybe they should follow their own advice.
