IT MAKES ME THINK of a game of peek-a-boo every time I see it. A police officer with a radar gun hides behind a tree or an object big enough to hide his or her presence. If you ask me, that’s money well spent given the number of drivers speeding.
It’s not just someone running late. One too many drivers love speeding, whether in town or outside of it (construction zones included!) and as a result… may God help the rest of people engaged in traffic, pedestrians, cyclists, and other drivers too.
Some Kamloops roads that see a lot of traffic, hence a lot of speeding, such as Summit Drive and Pacific Way, have the speed displays that blink when you exceed the limit.
It’s a reminder for those who care and another thing to ignore for those who don’t. Would more fines (and increasing with each new offense) deliver the message?
