I'll believe it . . .

Pa. vows crackdown on aggressive drivers

. . . when I see a State Trooper patrolling the last 10 miles before the DWG bridge between 6 and 8 am on a weekday. Most of that stretch is a 50 MPH zone; most drivers take that to mean 85.

There have been speed traps on I-81 between Wilkes-Barre and Scranton - northbound and southbound - every day this week. No nonsense-type traps - one car manning the gun and three or four at a time pulling folks over. I have never seen anything like it - and I have had eight moving violations in the past seven years.

Here's my theory on this push . . . the NHTSA monitors enforcement among the states. Pennsylvania has received warning letters from the USDOT that, essentially, it wasn't issuing enough speeding tickets (the feds tie highway monies to things like this), so, to meet their annual "quotas", the staties have parties like this.
