Ridiculous road sign wastes taxpayers' money

Rate this post

This is just one tiny example of how our government — national, state, local — wastes taxpayers’ hard-earned money.

My friend, Mark S. McGrew, who wrote the first “birther” exposés back in 2008, sent me this video. He is running for El Paso County Sheriff in Texas. This video exemplifies one of the problems in El Paso which Mark, if elected sheriff, will rectify!

    Cute video … BUT, the technique has been used effectively for DECADES!
    Now, with conventional speed control methods a Cop car would need to be on the road in question somewhat visible and subject to being spotted by eye and/or radar detectors, right?
    Have you ever seen pairs of 1′ x 2′ rectangles painted on the edge of the road a few hundred yards apart that didn’t seem to have any practical use (in Indiana they used to paint silhouettes of airplanes, instead)? Well, those are a measured distance apart. So, a Police Officer in a fixed or rotary wing aircraft hovering above need only time how long it takes a vehicle to go between those marks – a little math or a prepared chart and he has a good idea of how fast the car is going. He, then, radios to a Police cruiser parked WELL out of sight who, then, uses more conventional means to ascertain the actual speed and act accordingly.
