Wait a minute...I'm pretty sure that was Perd Hapley reporting, not Stanley Roberts...

If the judges would quit letting people off so lightly, they could afford more officers on the roadways. This would lead to less speeders and more revenue for traffic enforcement, something that is badly needed on our roadways.

So, ...and just so I have this right. Stan says, we can go 15mph above the speed limit and that ain’t misbehavin’ enough to be gettin’ a ticket.

Well, Thank You Stan, ..for letting everybody know that. We’re all safer for your reporting, no-doubt.


Bring back photo radar to state highways!


That was proven to be a disaster. Impossible to keep people from speeding. As long as people drive at the pace of traffic, everything is fine. The problem is actually when somebody is actually doing the speed limit or less and not in the far right lane, and other cars try getting around them. May not be right, but unfortunately that's the case nationwide, not just AZ. No cop will pull you over if you're driving with the flow of traffic, only if you stand out.


This will go down in history as one of the most esteemed retorts in the history of the English language. Not only is it wise in content, it is beautifully expressed into words, unlike no other sacred manuscript, scroll or historical journal.


That is so true. I first ran into this is Maryland back in the 1960's when the patrol would pull you over for obstructing traffic if you were going slower than the flow. I was doing 70 in a 50 zone one time and a cop signaled me to go faster.


There are no speed limits in AZ. Those signs are just decorations
