mithras_angel: I remember thinking, "Holy fark, it's just like the Bugs Bunny cartoons...  California is green right away."

Of course, about 10 miles later, you're back in desert...  But it was more than a little weird, that first time.


Back in 1997 voters passed a proposition to astro turf the CA desert but there was only money in the budget to turf 10 miles along the border.

bimgrapes: The last time I drove into Vegas, I was pulled over for doing 90.  The cop ended up giving me a parking ticket instead of a speeding ticket.  I'm not complaining or anything but how does one get a parking ticket on the freeway?


Based on what other people are saying, it does sound like you were going too slow...

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.

joonyer: Mikey1969: To blend in with traffic, troopers went to cars without light bars. On one shift, Hixson told The Times, he was in his car for three minutes before he saw someone fly past at more than 120 mph.

Because if it were about SAFETY, they wouldn't mind if the speeders saw and identified them and slowed down, as long as they slowed down.

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


Pfff, I do 120 just going to work in the morning. If all the lanes are clear. And no cops around. And I double-check my mirrors. And call my mom first to see if it's ok.

natazha: I've got a friend who will be peeved. She routinely does Pasadena to the Strip in under 2.5 hours. Doing the speed limit will add over an hour.


Which clubs does she dance in?

HaHa! As someone doing 120 out of Boulder City right now, I'm getting a kick...

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.
