Officers were told to saturate I-95 and I-81 and write as many tickets as possible.

Why?

The Commonwealth of Virginia is facing a $2.2 billion budget shortfall.

Everyone and I mean everyone should drive within the speedlimit, and curtail their consumption of alcohol, and tobacco, for one year. Let's starve the government bastards out!

My V1 saved me twice last week. Driving without a radar detector these days is just crazy....

Isn't Virginia the only state to make radar detectors illegal?

Yep - but who gives a flip what the laaaaaaaw says when the laaaaaaw is immoral or evil?

Fuck the laaaaaaaw!

I don't "buckle up for safety," either.

Yeah, I know...what a useless law, shame there's no Dr. Dectoruse. What is the fine for getting caught?

And by the way 6996 tickets in 48 hrs is 145 tickets an hour, or about two and a half tickets a minute! Can't the law enforcement be used for better things?
