NYC SPEEDWAYS

Problem

There appears to be an increase in the number of idiotic criminals driving the streets of NYC who are hell bent on speeding as if they were in a hurry to put a down payment on their tombstone.

One of my neighbors has already been warned several times, but insists on showing his low IQ and his desire to hurt someone, or perhaps just himself.

Here are some facts for all those drivers who insist on speeding within city limits. You can assume that each 5 mph you drive over 60 mph is like paying an additional $0.24 per gallon for gas. See www.fueleconomy.gov for more on this.

A speed fine could cost you over a thousand dollars. To hold on to your license, remember that speed violation points range from 3 to 11. Your license will be suspended at 11 points.

Our safety is the reason that speed enforcement is a police priority. Over 42,000 people die as the result of traffic crashes each year on our nation's highways and hundreds of thousands are seriously injured. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for people ages 3 - 33.
