I'm not sure if this went through, so I'm trying again.
I'm convinced that both the state and local governments could make a
big dent in their budget deficits by enforcing traffic laws. A few
years ago I read that before I-95 was complete along the Eastern
Seaboard, some small Southern towns were notorious for vigorously
enforcing speed limits. The residents benefited from low property

> I WISH, WISH, WISH… they would just enforce the laws in general ;) Having grown up in a state where it snowed a lot, I drove differently in the Winter than other months, expecting a car to side through a red light. I drive that way ALL THE TIME here in RI. The blatant violations of motoring laws is widespread… cars and bicycles. I'd love to see automated speed ticketing mechanisms, heck might be a way to pay for this crumbling infrastructure of ours.
