when you top a hill on the interstate an automatically see a smokey sitting on the other side hiding, and taking pictures, you can bet he didn't magically appear. Radar trap, filling quotas, collecting revenue, paying the county bills.

That's why God invented Escort Radar Detectors like mine :eusa_whistle: :funnyface:

You don't need a radar detector if you don't speed, I haven't been stopped for speeding since 1978, why, I don't speed. A minimum speeding ticket in TX will cost close to $175, it's just not worth it to save a few seconds.

Don't have to be doing anything wrong to get a ticket. That's the point. It's about meeting quotas.

I guess it could happen, I haven't seen any of it around here. Maybe your title should have been a bit more specific.

If one is violating speed ordinances or parking restrictions then one must conclude they should exercise greater diligence and follow the law. On the other hand what the Chief is saying is get off your ass and do your job.

I got caught by a policeman standing behind a tree with his radar gun. I wanted to tell the kind officer that it wasn't fair. That really took the sport out of the game. He should have been visible so I could have slowed down in time...

Go to court and fight the tickets...I do. I win most of the time because I drag it our so long and the cops never show up.
