Speed traps are set up to collect unusual amounts of revenue by tricking motorists into violating the law. 😠
A screenshot of the map, showing how widespread the issue is, and how it’s also a bigger problem in some regions. Screenshot from Governing.com.




Agelbert NOTE: A fellow air traffic controller I knew had previously been a Georgia State Trooper. He explained, back in 1974, smirking frequently, how they were quite selective about who they ticketed (i.e. people of the "wrong" color and, of course, anyone, regardless of color, with out of state plates). He even said drivers would pay "extra" ;) if the trooper "allowed them" to pay the fine then and there, instead of going straight to court (Going straight to Traffic Court was a, and probabaly still is, Georgia State "policy" for all out of state ticketed folks). He said he pocketed a lot of extra money that way. He was just trying to help those drivers save some time, of course. Y'all have a nice day! I didn't bother to ask him if that was illegal. Whether it was or wasn't, the Traffic Court Judges and those clever Wynken, Blynken and Nod legislators in Georgia who crafted the "out of state" traffic fines "procedure" obviously approved of this patrolman bribe "subsidy".

I told him the only time I had driven through Georgia was at night through heavy fog. I was not stopped at any time. He said I had been lucky there was a lot of fog. I agreed.     

Selective enforcement of laws is the American way, don'tcha know? Ethics? What Ethics? 😈 We don't need no silly librul ethics in the USA...

For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
