Speeding is #6. I'm not suggesting failing to enforce speeding, but how about a strong law enforcement effort to enforce #s 1,2 and 3? If safety is your concern, I mean.
too bad none of these apply if you are in the Unites States illegally
just "Head for the Border -tm" and thumb your nose at the traffic cop and insurers
Now lets compare these to the most "common" traffic tickets given and you begin to see why these 5
raise your rates the most
Coincidence, I think not........
How is someone driving through Chicago not supposed to speed? The speed limit is 55 MPH and even the police cruise anywhere from 65 to 75 while not pulling over a single driver. Very mixed signals on that one. If they're not going to ticket then raise the speed limit on I-294 to 70, since that's what everyone does anyway. Anyone that does 55 MPH on that route is a traffic hazard.
Almost ALL speeding tickets are frivolous. MOST accidents are NOT caused by speeding, but by other traffic code infractions.
If speeding caused accidents, then there would be more wrecked police patrol cars.
And accident reports - it is time non-law enforcement offices determine causes of traffic accidents, as law enforcement has a direct benefit from having speeding the determined cause.
As evidenced by speeding being determined by law enforcement as the cause of an accident which involved a driver failing to stop at a STOP SIGN, but the driver with the right of way was found to be the cause of the accident because he was exceeding the posted speed limit...
...and the case where the driver was on CRACK COCAINE went he killed two motorists on the shoulder of the highway due to a fender bender, but law enforcement determined that because he was "driving" at 80 mph in a 65 mph zone, it was the speeding that killed the two motorists.
It was an old police adage, when law enforcement actually patrolled with their PATROL CARS, that someone driving the speed limit was either drunk, carrying contraband, wanted, suspended/revoked, or just did not know how to f----g drive.
How many times have you driven behind someone doing the speed limit and they fail to use signals, stop at stop signs/red lights, fail to keep right, give way to passing vehicles, etc.., but then there is police officer up the road just sitting there with their radar and the same person just drives past them to continue violating traffic codes and being a safety hazard.
It seems a lot of communities are lowering speed limits without just cause, just because they "think" the speed limit is too high, and setting up future speed traps. This goes for many State DOT offices and the unjustifiable lowering of speed limits - seems like they put their grandmothers were put in charge.

You can send my check now please.
people who text and drive are just attention whores!!
they are the type person who THINK that everybody needs to know where their at and what their doing EVERY SECOND OF THE DAY!!
I think what should be done is, screw the ticket for one but rather put them in that prison in Arizona under the watchful eye of Sheriff Joe Arpaio. That will straighten them up real quick!
Don't get stopped for a traffic violation in Las Vegas. It might affect more than your insurance rates.
