Where did I say I hate kids? Don't put words in my mouth or misquote me and to suggest that my comment was about hitting kids on purpose should not be allowed on this board.

Yeah.... slow enough so as I travel through crime ridden areas wilding teenagers can jack my tires and bumpers, empty my wallet, take off with my groceries and leave me for dead. Crime rates will sky rocket but hey....true to his word; Big Bird Billy and his flock of seagulls will shout from the tallest podiums............." no kids were killed " ....Hahaha! Gotta...love it!

So watch out for the signs. When u see the screen immediately slow down. There is a camera within one block.

Hope that helps. I constantly see people who were going the same rate of travel as me who failed to slow down upon being warned by the screen get tickets.
Ahh, ok so let me explain to you a little thing about those speed tracker signs....

They are there to show people that they are over the limit so they slow down. But what a lot of people like to do when they see the signs, especially myself, is to floor it and see how high you can get the number to. Over the years the cities realized that people were racing to get a high number, so as soon as you get like 5 or 10 above the limit it either says "too high" or just goes blank with a little strobe light

I use to do this all the time on Queens Blvd late at night. Nothing like seeing "Speed Limit 25. Your Speed: 53"
