    Default Re: TN - Tenn. considering extra fines for 'super speeders'

    The first paragraph says it all:
    Tennessee lawmakers are considering ways to add new monetary penalties for speeding drivers as a way to boost funding for the state's trauma centers.
    BOOST FUNDING... in other words, this is just a way to filch more money from motorists.
    The Tennessee Department of Transportation's most recent annual traffic study found that 70.5 percent of drivers exceeded the speed limit on freeways with a 55 mph limit, while nearly 44 percent drove faster than a posted 70 mph limit.
    Can you say MONEY GRAB? Thank goodness for countermeasures.
    If I'm passing you on the right, YOU are in the wrong lane!

    If speed kills, how come I'm still alive?

    Revenue, taxes, revenue and more taxes is all these A-hole politicians know!

    To any government politicians reading this:
    How about cutting the GD bloated budgets for a change! Government workers with 6 digit pensions when ordinary people are out of work or have reduced salaries with most having NO pensions is mathematically ridiculous and you know it.
    Yet keep going to those revenue schemes and tax wells and your gonna get tarred, feathered and run out of town some day.
