Speed enforcement.

You'll want to watch this video if you tend to go a little faster than posted. Very informative!

That was funny for sure. Most people believe that if you drive just 5 miles per hour over the speed limit you will not be stopped. I recently got a speeding ticket and I was noticing on the rate schedule what the fine was per the speed over the limit. Turns out it doesn't matter if you are 4 or 10 miles over the speed limit the fine is going to be the same. Now where the discussion comes in is there is some differential as far as how accurate your speedometer is vs. the radar gun. That you will have to argue in front of a judge.

I really have no issue with the spd tickets, per say, if it was earned, but the surcharges on your insurance for 6 years. needs to be changed..
you get popped for going 5 over and you're gonna pay through the nose for 6 years.. thats just not right

I'd kind of like that chopper to sting a couple of my neighbors as they pass my house.

Judge: Officer Smith can you please present your case.

Officer Smith: Thank you your honor, how are the kids?

Judge: They are fine thanks, and you wife, did she get over her cold ok?

Officer Smith: Yes thank you. I had my patrol car parked 22 feet from the northwest corner of 2nd and Pine at 2:25 pm the third day of January 2013. The temperature was 68 degrees with a 3 mile per hour western wind. The visibility was 98 miles. I observed Mr. Jones in his 2001 Dodge Caravan, gold in color with the license plate FHIU125 coming down 2nd street in what appeared to be over the speed limit posted by the state clearly 94 feet past the corner of 3rd street on 2nd. I aimed my city issued Binford 1200 speed reading radar unit calibrated at the factory at 63 miles per hour and checked every morning in my cruiser with the factory supplied diagnostic tool. Mr. Jones was traveling at 37 miles per hour in the posted 35 zone.

Judge: That was beautiful Officer Smith.

Officer Smith: Thank you, your honor, I try.

Judge: Mr. Jones, can you please state your case?

Mr. Jones: Duhhhhhh, I wasn't speeding.

In all actuality Police helicopters really do a lot of speed enforcement.....not quite exactly like the one in the youtube vid. I can remember quite a few times our "air force" would call for a unit to stop a speeder. The best one I got from them was a guy I finally caught up to and clocked him at 109 mph on the 91 fwy. He was really crying the blues because he had gotten a speeding ticket the week before.

They do not blow up cars in florida, but they do watch from the sky. They have white lines painted across the road. Pretty much a point A to B timming strip thing. Speed thru them & a Trooper is waiting a 1/2 mile up to pull you over.

In California back a few decades ago they said that the law couldn't time you going from point to point that you HAD to be "tracked" with the police vehicle going the same speed to determine how fast you were going. The plane could only be used to spot you, then the police cruiser had to track you at speed to give you a ticket. I don't know if it's still that way.

Good Point, Brian, I remember asking Bad Rat at the Famosa Hot Rod Reunion/Drags about that. It was hard for me to understand that the car with the fastest MPH didn't have the fastest time or win the race. I just never had thought that much about it but it's a fact.

I guess that's what they call "getting a good hook" huh?
