There is no doubt in my mind that there is absolutely no facet of the scamera program that has anything to do with safety. I was proven correct when the media caught wind of the potential discontinuation of the scamera program. The line "profits are down" said it all. This has nothing to do with safety; it's a revenue generating machine disguised (to the sheep) as a safety campaign.

After all, how often do you see somebody going 10-15 over causing huge multi-car pileups and death? Almost never. The dangerous people are the erratic and aggressive drivers who weave in and out, tailgate, and cut people off. I know...I used to be one.

I seem to have a conflicted attitude toward the law. I was a rebellious teenager and part of me still is. I am very strongly pro-law enforcement, and in favor of harsh treatment of criminals, yet I also like the idea of pushing limits and breaking rules, albeit in a minor way.

IMO: IT'S GOOOOOOOOOD no matter how it may look.
I recently found a good deal on a 2001 Camaro SS so I test drove it. Lets just say I scared the hell out of the car salesman. After driving that car I realized I do NOT need a faster car. I have no doubt I would have lost my license within a week of owning that thing.

You should become a professional race car driver.

I wonder how many cops you scared in your driving tenure - lol!

There has been talk in CA to get those here. People where I live constantly drive over 85. Driving 75 in the fast lane is considered slow. Regarding OP car, its just minor body damage. I would love to have a good running vehicle for $500. I've been looking on CL for a bit but I'm way too paranoid to believe anyone selling a well running car for $500.

Yes, this is the guy. I forgot exactly what he did to avoid getting hauled in for non-payment. Hilarious.

We need a good old-fashioned rebellion in this country. Government is out of control and is looking to take all our money. We need to show them who's boss.

They are out there. I took another member here on city-data for a road trip in it recently. He was shocked on how nice it runs and drives. It literally runs like brand new. I only put the best maintenance items on it too so that helps.
