#2 Current speed laws are like any other "zero tolerance" law - zero common sense.

Used to be the cop had to pace you, make a determination. Meant that good drivers rarely got tickets. Now they point their stupid little toy and get a max reading, which punishes good drivers disproportionately. Mousy 5 miles under scared of their own shadow driving is what current enforcement protocols reward. It's also the kind of driving that causes accidents.

And it doesn't help that police personnel policies prohibit hiring anyone with an above average IQ!

#3 I think the idea is, see a speed camera, slow down, then the cars crash into your rear.

#4 I've noticed it doesn't take long for people to remember where they are. They slow down just before the camera and speed up after it's passed.
