    Speed trap on 2nd Ave

    Be aware.... Cops are out and about on all areas to from Downtown today. Must be trying to meet month end quotas. Maybe they should be out trying to make DSM a safer place and not worry about rush hour traffic and people getting to work on time.

    Or maybe some people should be a little more organzied and leave earlier in the morning and not jeapordize other people's safety by speeding during the busiest time of day in the busiest part of the state?

    And making people obey traffic laws is part of their job and it DOES make DSM a safer place.

    They must have moved south from last night. Around 7:30pm there were 5 or 6 of them around 2nd Ave and Euclid and 3 of them had someone pulled over already.

    Re: Speed trap on 2nd Ave

    Is it really a trap? Or is it just where they happen to be sitting and catching speeding vehicles?

    So what you're saying is that if I'm going to drink in a motorized vehicle, I should just take the bus like normal?

    What it lacks in length, it makes up for it with character.

    The short bus does seem thicker than a normal size bus.

    Re: Speed trap on 2nd Ave

    Dude, it's the end of month. QUOTA TIME!!!

    Seriously, especially in a down economy, drive slow, and follow every conceivable traffic law at the end of the month. Last month my girlfriend got a ticked for "failing to pull over a lane when passing an emergency vehicle", even though she was getting passed on the left, and she slowed down to 10 MPHs UNDER the speed limit. They're going to write tickets, regardless of how blurry your "violation" is. If it's at all close, you're getting one.

    Good. When the cops aren't around we complain. When they are around we complain. They have a pretty tough job.

    failing to pull over a lane when passing an emergency vehicle", even though she was getting passed on the left
    So she didn't pull over when an emergency vehicle was coming? Isn't that pretty Driver's Ed 101?

    I just wanted to make people aware, and if you are normal, and go 5-10 over on most days, be careful.
