Traffic cops and speed cameras are simply a waste of tax payer funds.

Wow a 350z as a police car? That is definitely a first I'm hearing about that. I was under the impression they only used American cars.

i LOVE being in Houston.

nice wide open lanes.

speed limit is just a suggestion - more like just a random sign on the road with letters...

In Fairfax county here in Northern VA we get surprised by our local police every day, to add more to the pics I put up on page 1 here are some more examples of what we have to deal with. Remember this is all in 1 county!!

No i think the county pays for them all since they are equipped with the latest goodies built into them.

They were used more for the people that run into the woods and stuff after getting spotted, but one of my friends got pulled over by an Animal Control Van here (Aninmal Control are cops with badges and guns but just are trained in animals) lol

Face it, there is a war on speed and the safety Nazis are winning. The next move will mandatory GPS devices in all cars for 24x7 monitoring. They won't even need cops. You'll just get a ticket in the mail after your car tattles on you. It's coming, I can feel it.
