This burns me up.
People like this can run scams like this all over America with impunity, but my mom gets a speeding ticket running to the local store to pick up a loaf of bread.
The police are useless highwaymen preying upon innocent citizens going about their business instead of actively hunting down criminals - who these days, frequent the new electronic marketplaces.

HAHAHA! That is EXACTLY what I call them: “The modern highwaymen.” I made three driving trips to my new home in KY from Seattle and several trips from Seattle to eastern South Dakota, San-Diego, and have driven in pretty much every state in the union. It is like a game of cat and mouse to me, with the state patrols being the “cats”. That said, I get pulled over about three or four times a year but average only one ticket per year.
It’s kind of a fun “game” that really doesn’t cost that much. It has very little to do with safety, though that is the component that gives it “legitimacy”.
