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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
