r00tdenied: I love they justify it as 'saving lives', however that's not the true motivation for the zero tolerance policy.  Its ticket revenue from out of state tourists.  Notice how they're only targeting traffic originating from California.


You know why that is?  Because the entitlement crowd are really easy to spot.  They're driving shiny expensive vehicles at crazy unsafe speeds, with Cali plates.

I'm sick to death of those people tearing through as if they're the only ones on the road.  I ride a motorcyle in this city, I don't go more than five over, and I stay away from the passing lanes.  And yet look out!  Here comes another Cali plate swerving to and fro, cutting back and forth across the express lanes to weave through traffic (without blinkers) so they don't have to hit their brakes while traveling far faster than the rest of the vehicles.
Also: it's illegal to drive while using your phone without a hands-free solution, so either buy a headset, learn how the bluetooth that's most likely included in your BMW actually works, or gtfo the road!

It took these people driving an AVERAGE of 90+ to get the cops to start a crackdown, and you idiots want to keep crying about how its a money grab?  Piss off and keep your entitled asses away from the rest of us who are just trying to get through our day then!

You can cry about revenue generation if they crack down on people who go a couple miles over.  Until then, shut up and stop abusing your driving privilege.  When it's so out of hand that somebody can be ticketed TWICE before even getting into the city, there's a real problem that needs to be fixed.

Heres a tip: Pull your head out of your ass. Its not hard to notice even an unmarked cop car. Be aware of the other cars on the road and you will never get a ticket.

Clemkadidlefark: 95 might actually be correct. Last time leaving Vegas I had it at 104mph all the way to the turn off to I-70.


Bullshiat. 104MPH in the Virgin River Gorge?

If you're doing that speed there don't be surprised if you end up to be a smear on the canyon wall.

joonyer: No. If you're doing 120 you should probably just go to jail.


I wouldn't want to get pulled over by someone without light bars though.  If you're pulling me over in the middle of the desert at night, do it in a car no one but a cop would drive.

I was going to Vegas with a friend, and he liked to speed, he even had a radar detector. I swear to god someone had a radar gun and was just farking with him. He'd get up to close to 85 and boom his detector would light up. He'd slow down and drive a few miles, we'd see no cop. He'd speed back up and boom the detector would go off again.

BTW I think a random movable array of unmarked radar guns set up just to blast traffic but not record anything would slow the worst offenders down (they are the ones with radar detectors). Also it would be really funny to watch.

In how many separate accidents ?

"For the first six months of 2012, compared with the same period last year, injury accidents in the Nevada Zero Tolerance zone fell by more than half, Hixson said."

What are the actual numbers ? going from 8 down to 4 on a heavily travelled road is statistically insignificant. The sample data is so small that it probably just falls within the expected year-to-year variation.  When cops justify their actions with some impressive-sounding stat, but avoid giving the raw numbers, it's a safe bet they're just trying to justify their continued revenuing. If they act on a dangerous stretch of road and their actions have a real effect on safety they will announce actual numbers (ex. the number of deaths and injuries on i666 dropped from 82 to 6). When their intervention is statistically insignificant, they announce a percentage.

If public safety had anything to do with it, they wouldn't be pulling people over and conducting business on the edge of a freeway.

They need to change the speed limit to 75. The speed limit between Vegas and Pahrump is 75. The speed limit between Vegas and Mesquite is 75. Why is the speed limit between Vegas and Barstow 60?
