    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.

    Come on. There's a guy in the Advoc section who thinks it's ok to yell at cyclist from cars becaue they are breaking the laws. And if you don't agree with him, you're a pompous ass.

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

    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.

    Unfortunately not everyone lives in a place that you can bike everywhere. Some of us must still drive cars and when we do we like to be able to "skirt" from the MAN as much as possible. Urban sprall is alive and well in many cities and we can't all live downtown,( or want to for that matter) or close to enough to work, to bike.

    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.

    The easy way to do that is to simply drive within the speed limit. Sheesh, and I wonder why I'm the only one on the road who doesn't feel the need to change my behaviour when the cops are around.

    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.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?

    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.
