    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Terrible idea. It will make getting around even slower than it is already.

    I am fortunate in that the great county of Hampshire, where I live, only has two fixed cameras, facing in both directions on the same stretch of road. The speed limit is 60mph. I frequently have to slow down behind people who drop down to 40 or sometimes even less on the approach to either of these cameras.

    The current system of negative incentive works well enough, actually far too well, as it is. We don't want to turn it into an idiot's charter.

    They didn't say how much the winners got. If it was like $30 bucks, this could work. If it was like $1.25, not so much.

    I would think that the best idea would be to get rid of all those cameras and get the hell out of peoples lives.
    "Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

    Definitely. Speed cameras are the work of al Shaitān, in my opinion.
