    Des Moines money grab is off for now

    You know the mobile speed traps that are for public safety. Well some dude smashed into one and is in the hospital. Hopefully they keep providing more safety for us in the future.

    The kid sacrificed for the good of the public. Now we just need to keep it up. Every time they set up the trap someone needs to volunteer themselves and take it out.

    I'm surprisingly ok with bad drivers crashing into things that aren't other cars. Stupid kid.

    Jeez man. Just don't speed. Don't run red lights. All of the cameras in the world shouldn't bother you if you are not a ****** bag driver.

    So you've never broken a rule in your life? You should run for public office.

    I read somewhere that he got something in his eye which caused the crash.

    Where did you get that from what he wrote? I'm sure he's broken a rule in life, as have all of us.

    It amounts to a whole bunch of whining, in my opinion. Whining about an increased chance of getting caught speeding. Boo Friggin Hoo.

    At the end of the day, you're still breaking the law and I have no sympathy for the people who get ticketed. And if I end up being one of those people, I hope nobody has any sympathy for me.

    If you ever get pulled over I would say that if I was you. Actually, I would demand a ticket if I was you.
