It's widely accepted that a speeding ticket should be issued if someone drives over the posted speed limit. Even if it's one mile over the limit because - speeding is still speeding.
Now, we should ask ourselves (why?). Why should an officer ticket motorists who exceed the posted speed limit?
The most popular answer to this question has to deal with safety. Everyone knows it is unsafe to travel over the speed limit. As a result you are potentially placing your life and the lives of others around you in danger and should be punished.
On the surface that may seem like a logical explanation. But a true detective wouldn't stop here.
More questions have to be asked like why are speed limits set the way they are, who sets them that way and what formula do they use?
Who says that exceeding the speed limit is dangerous, where are the studies and statistics to prove it?
Questions like these have to be answered in order for a clearer picture to be formed. Not until they are, will you begin to see the lies and deceit of modern day traffic enforcement.
Don't allow what seems to be obvious, cloud your judgment. Look at it from all angles and not just head on. I mean, if it is illegal to exceed the speed limit, why are there cars on the road that can do twice the speed limit?
What kind of hypocrisy do we live in? Car manufacturers produce vehicles that can go blazingly fast, but we are instructed to never go over a certain speed.
It's like putting a kid in a toy store all to himself and telling him that he can't touch anything. The temptation would be too much to handle. Sooner or later, no matter how well behaved the kid is, he will give in.
The same holds true for the everyday driver; eventually he will succumb to temptation and speed.
If safety were such a major concern as they would have you believe, then vehicles sold in this country would not be able to travel past 70 mph. It doesn't make sense to produce a car that can go as fast as 150 mph when there is not a single street in America where it is legal to do so! Does it?
The government allows fast cars to be built because they are encouraging us to 'break the law'! It's the only way to ensure a continuous flow of revenue. Otherwise, there would be very few speeding tickets to write!
Fast cars are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to increasing the revenue pool. There are also low speed limits, speed traps, ticket quotas and deceptive practices that come into play. Many tickets given out today don't have anything to do with safety.
I'm not here to condone fast and dangerous driving. Nor am I anti-government. However, when the truth speaks for itself, it's hard to deny it.
I do believe in speeding tickets and government revenue. But, speeding tickets should be given to those who deserve it. Those who really don't care about safety on our roads or the well being of others.
These are the people who should be contributing to the revenue. Not innocent drivers like you and I.
