    I think legally they have to give some sort of notice to the public.

    Announcing it will get more people to buckle up and not speed...

    I think that you're misunderstanding the point behind a traffic crackdown.

    Maybe they're announcing that it will be in one place when it will actually be somewhere else.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    If it was just about the $$ they wouldn't announce it, so maybe you're misunderstanding something?

    I love this message board. In another thread the Dungeons and Dragon crowd is arguing about the moon landing. Here, we're arguing about the purpose of a traffic enforcement campaign.
