Maybe that nice fine will entice CHP to enforce driving too slow in the left lane.

The older I get the more I master driving less aggressively. Would probably floor it more but I live in L.A. where ~7 MPH is the average speed.

Say whaaaa? I guess a 1 month suspension wasn't cutting it.

Too fast or too slow... That is crazy in CA... everyone hauls, even in the slow lane (which pisses me off to no end). I'm more of a "Speed of traffic" kind of guy.

I guess puuting a sweater or newspaper over the drivers side door glass is no longer an option when coming home from santa barbara! Thanks for the info! And that bit about doing more than 25mph beyond speed limit?!?! Wow. Who knew?!?!? I do not want to go to jail!!!

So that means no more going faster than 90 mph (or 80 in downtown LA where the limit is still only 55).

When did cali become more communistic than Cuba?
This is just wrong, its pure robbery!


If someone cant read English well and stopped in a bus zone they get a 1000$ fine?
My gf did 90mph in her integra today, she could have been locked up for 90 days?

I swear, they would tax our happiness and dreams in a heart beat given the oppratunity..

Makes me sick! What happen to a free county?

Why do they get a motto like "to protect and serve", when they only "prosecute and fine you"?

Or worse.!!! And in jail around here, the number 1 threat is the guards.. They will F U up quickly and more than anyone else there..!
So those penaltys are conserning to say the least

How slow is driving too slow? That's subjective.

Is it true no LEO will bother to pull you for going 10 over on the freeway because everyone is doing it?

I feel if i enjoy my car for even a second, or just drive along with traffic or just relax behind the wheel the government will come screw my entire life!

People have car based mf carreers, do you know what these do to us?
Just one can cost our job, a 1000$ and time in jail?

Must be all this UNDERCROWDING in our jails we keep hearing about!
O wait, thats right we don't have room for criminals, just speeders!

That should not be an arrestable offense unless they run you *****s!
How much power do they need? They already abused it non stop

For going a little fast! **** You who ever passed this travisty to the motorist!
And all this is in there discretion? A cop gets discression on ruining my life...


Fck that! They go by mood, and since we hate them for screwing us.. They are biased..

Its all just morally wrong!
