Exclamation Ticket Warning

This article was posted in USA Today on March 31, 2010. Makes you think...

"The recession may be claiming a new victim: the 5-

the USA have routinely given motorists exceeding
the speed limit.

As cities and states scramble to fill budget gaps with
revenue from traffic citations, "not only are the

This is how it goes when cities see a drop in revenue. I say lets do our best to adhear to the law and make them earn it another way. If I did'nt get fined on the insurance too it would not be so bad. Double trouble so to say.
