Seems like anytime I go anywhere, there's too much traffic to get near the speed limit.

How would you prove this? But I guess it's nice thinking you're right, eh?

I'd find out if they still catch anyone. Or do you think everyone just quit?

in the VI, some of the roads are 10 mph. get that? 10 mph. and these roads are out in the middle of nowhere. granted they are pretty mountainous and windy, but NOBODY goes that speed on those roads, and i mean nobody.

fortunatly, like i said, the police dont really enforce traffic laws, they have bigger things to worry about, like gangs, guns, and drugs.

What? So the only way to know they work is if no one speeds? Your logic gets better everyday...

This only works to increase safety if there is evidence that it functions as a deterrent and if there is evidence that accidents on the roads where they are installed are caused at least in part by speeding.

I think the red light cameras do function as a deterrent insofar as I know that I personally won't risk running a yellow if I could end up with a ticket for $85 or whatever it is. As for the speed cameras, I'm not sure what the statistics are.

By your logic they work to stop speeding, so no one should be doing so any longer.

i think, and Hyper could back me up on this, as far as PA goes, they are like i said the 2nd strictest state on speeding, and yet people still speed and the PA cops still write record amounts of tickets year after year. people must know that the possibility of getting caught is higher here than most, yet they still speed and the cops still write record numbers of tickets. does that mean people dont care and will continue to speed anyway? maybe.

i dont know if any of you have ever driven through PA, but it's like a different world. You'll ALWAYS see people pulled over on the turnpike. When i commuted back and forth to college, i always had to be on the lookout for them, and these were on state routes in the middle of nowhere. id see them pulling people over at least twice a week on those roads. yet i would still speed cause i knew all their hiding spots.

I never said anything about STOPPING anything. In fact you said "doesn't slow anyone down".

Hell when the cop has someone pulled over in PA it's just an excuse to speed, since he's already busy.

What part of still issuing speeding tickets equating not slowing anyone down don't you get? They put cameras up all over the UK to "prevent" crime, now when you get stabbed there is a good chance they'll catch the guy a day sooner.

Apparently it's second place, behind Ohio.

What State Gives the Most Speeding Tickets?
