This was sent to me. I don't know how accurate this really is but the ones I looked at in my area is dead on..
Fate is the Hunter
What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.
I found most (not all) the ones listed in our area to be false.
- LISTING FOR DEATH TRAPS -
I would have hoped there was a good reason to this post, but of course there is no logical reason for it to exist on a bikeforum anywhere in my opinion. Why encourage drivers to be even more reckless? C'mon.
And don't throw the "posted for cyclists to be wary of said areas" argument out. Lame.
Think people, seriously. Don't support idiots behind the wheel.
If you want to drive like a moron, I want to carry an HKMP5 w/SD7 and a pocket full of teflon coats. Call it balance.

It's the way people are here now. The car is winning I guess.

just got back from the Courthouse. Legally changed my name to "Pompous Ass" so I fit the bill completely.
My position remains
Actually it's hurting the motorists...the cops DO know about that site, and DO adjust their traps accordingly.
It doesn't matter if you know where a speed trap is. Going the speed limit is hiding from the police, so you get stopped anyway.
Bikes use brakes to stop.
If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

This topic is the same as many here...if you don't like the subject just don't read it. No need to chastise the author for trying to help the few of us that appreciate it.

Yeah, I shouldn't express my opinion in a forum.

I find it hilarious how that web site bends backwards to justify breaking the law. It's simply a matter of choice. Choose to break the law, be prepared to suffer the consequences without whining. It's not as if someone ordered you to speed on pain of death.
The site also mentions "exhorbitant fines". Yeah, right. For exhorbitant fines, look here.
To do 10-15 over in a residential neighborhood or somewhere highly populated is definately ticket worthy. You could harm or kill someone. 10-15 over on a deserted freeway is another story. The problem with traffic cops is that there is no discretion. I've been pulled over for doing 10 over on a deserted freeway and received a ticket. I'm not arguing that I broke the law, but who am I harming besides me? That's why Montana's old speed limit laws were so nice. If your car could handle it, if you weren't driving like a moron in a populated area, then high rates of speed were acceptable.
And as long as we are on the subject, the left lane is for passing.
