Bending the Laws

By James - 2/7/2005

Forty Years on Two Wheels has an interesting post about the future of transportation that got me thinking. What is the purpose of a law if law enforcers allows people break them? I have never understood why not raise the fine for speeding to $100,000.00 or throw them in jail? If the police want to stop people from speeding, surely that would do it. It would be a life changing event if you were caught.

I think the fines are more of a revenue source than a actual deterent. Excessive speed accounts for most auto fatalities and we have the means to stop it if we wanted to. But convienence outweighs the grim realities and as motorcyclists we are on the front lines of this.
