Huh.  If they're that corrupt, and have been getting away with it, how did it come to light?  I mean, politicians generally don't care if you're corrupt, as long as they get their cut...

State Rep. Charles Van Zant (R), who began looking into the town's police practices after receiving his own ticket while passing through, asked the state's auditor general to examine Hampton's books in April 2013.

Ah.  Revenge.  It's the only political motive I trust.

That whole section of 301 between Gainesville and highway 10 is rife with speed traps.  Still can be worth taking though if you are coming south on 95 and need to get to the Tampa bay area or further down along the west coast.

Beware of route 301 in Florida.. I think I remember at least half a dozen billboards warning of speed traps.

This is what happens when a gang of chiselers, stoners and meth heads get together and decide to run for office.

The corruption in that town affects the people in the immediate vicinity. The corruption in DC screws with 300 million Americans, and countless foreigners.
