    It's funny how that works isn't it? My MIL told me this morning that I was going to get shot if I got pulled over. Been pulled over 3 times in the last two years, haven't been shot, haven't gotten any tickets.

    I've been stopped a few times and have had very good results with rolling down the windows so the officer can clearly see me and waiting with my hands on the wheel. One, not so good.

    One afternoon I was in Omaha from Colorado Springs to help my wife's brother move. I signaled into a right turn lane and as I did so the light turned yellow and most of know what happens EVERY time after a yellow light? Yes, you guessed it, the RED comes on. I don't need to look up to see the red light-it always comes on after yellow, there was no painted sign saying no turn on red, so I stopped, waited for all traffic to clear the intersection, then proceeded to turn right.

    10 seconds later a Sarpy County deputy was in my ass then in my face about not being able to read a simple sign. I really wanted to punch his face in. I couldn't figure what the **** he was so upset about so after signing the ticket went back around and discovered an electronic sign that came on a fraction of a second after the red light.

    So apparently we can't think for ourselves and we have to stare at the pole until the red light comes on, then wait til the 'no right turn' sign goes off before making a legal turn on red. Revenue grab, no other reason the put up a sign like that and then put an officer on the corner. Since then I've seen many more of those signs and depending on the area of the country, they may have been around much longer. I just hadn't seen that type of sign in KCMO, Colorado Springs, Des Moines or any other place I'd lived previously.

    That was in 2000 and I still would like to punch that assholeofficer in the face.

    Do you see people whining and complaining about them on forums like this too?

  6. The really high tech areas use surveillance sats to time between hash marks on a clear day.

    When I lived in Annapolis, a Maryland state trooper chopper hovered over an area for extended periods so he could tell the officer he had a clear opening behind blah-blah speeder. Everyone speeds there, bumper to bumper, like a roller coaster ride.

    Glad I'm outta there!

    The State of Ohio has measured miles all over the state for air patrols to use. There are white lines extending outward from the white berm line that are at prescribed increments for speed calculation.
