    “The real goal isn’t to write tickets, it’s to slow drivers down and make the roads safer.”

    If that were true, the officer would station himself in plain view to slow down ALL motorists instead of lying in wait like a spider.

    Or, troopers could drive the highways at the speed limit acting like pace cars. (I know, nobody has ever seen a trooper driving the speed limit, but I’m sure it’s possible) This way they would also have the opportunity to spot other violations like failure to signal a lane change or tailgating or failure to keep right. They might also come upon disabled motorists in need of help.

    From his hiding spot, all this guy is doing is staring at his radar gun waiting to write the next ticket for some easy revenue.

    I agree. These guys usually enforce the laws they want to enforce. Otherwise, we would all be driving on the right, instead of sitting in the passing lane texting our friends. I see these folks EVERY day but not once have I seen a policeman stop one of them. True, police are already busy but if they want to protect and serve, they can stop a speeder but not write a ticket. Fact is that police are not required to arrest anyone; it is their call as to what enforcement activity they want to pursue and writing tickets and getting some revenue seem to be their favored tasks.
