Speeding Through Construction Zones
« on: April 27, 2014, 02:11:59 AM »

I didn't want to post this, but this is a public forum, and involves public officials.

Above is a dash cam video from a AR State Police vehicle pulling over the AHTD Highway director.

What I don't get is he was clocked going 81, but the department fleet-management system doesn't show him going above 72.

And, ironically:  http://www.ops.fhwa.dot.gov/wz/outreach/wz_awareness.htm

If I was clocked going 81 in a 60 mph construction zone, they would probably throw me in jail.

Shocking.  You mean to tell me that the most corupt part of government doesn't really enforce these "laws" equally, but rather conducts side-of-the-road "mini-trials" before running though multiple levels of courthouse and statehouse gangs before deciding who, at the point of a gun and beside the road, will be (not quite so) randomly taxed. 

You mean that when "laws" are passed that make no sense and which thus everybody disobeys, and are expected to, these petty dictators are empowered to practice their petty tyranies, and we all are less free than we deserve.

Shocking.
