Dylan06SS Posted January 23, 2006 Report Share Posted January 23, 2006 I got this information sent to me by 2 different cops that I know, so its on the up and up... and as many of you know its not hard to get pulled over in most of Orange County... now it looks like it'll happen on the freeways too: California Highway Patrol will launch a 30-day speeding ticket frenzyin South Orange County starting January 25, 2006. The state estimates that 22 million dollars will be generated in speeding tickets. 3 million will go to pay California Highway Patrol officer overtime. There will be 90 California Highway Patrol officers on duty at all times patrolling the 8 freeways. They are the following: 73, 55, 133, 241, 57, 5, 405, 605 freeways. Now 7 mph above the limit can justify a ticket and every California Highway Patrol officers is supposed to pull a car over and write a ticket every 10 minutes if possible. They have issued 50 brand new unmarked Crown Victoria cruisers and they are bringing all their part timers on full time. If you live or work in South Orange County you must take one of their freeways. It's up to you how fast you are doing when they do. This is a test by the CHP to raise the extra funds for the State of California. The wealthy folks of South Orange County can afford this new tax. The California State Legislators dreamed up this law to help close the budget gap. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
