Cheron: How about results based metrics.  In 2011 police hid in the bushes and drove unmarked vehicles  to catch speeders, causing distracted driving.  In 2017 police drove brightly colored, well marked cars along the same stretch. The number of tickets dropped 45%, accidents dropped 12%, injuries 37% and property damage 18%.  Sure you make less money but the result is people are safer and isn't that the goal, right?

How fast were you going?!
