    ‘The goal is to save lives and reduce serious injuries in crashes.”

    Which is exactly why the pull over people driving two blocks through town at speeds less than 30? Seriously, if it was about saftey this law would be limited to speeds exceeding 50mph.

    It’s all about generating revenue at joe citizen’s expense without calling it a tax.
