Two words - photo enforcement.


Even better: GPS Trackers.


Stupid idiot fast and distracted drivers on this freeway all the time. They should be steeply fined for the inconvenience of the other drivers to help pay for widening it. They all walked away uninjured so they can continue to drive recklessly


you don't even know the causes of the crash? Gotta love it


I think they should just kill them and sell their belongings to pay for a road. No excuses, driving above what the road service sets the limit at is ILLEGAL.
