hi.
hesitating between those two areas with a job position in each. Fast commutes and daily trips are an obsession for me. So : are there lots of carpool lane violator and ramp metering violators in phoenix fwys? Indeed i'm decided to turn into a regular violator of these devices to speed up my commutes. What are the chances to be caught? Also, can I do 90+mph en the freeway on non rush hour time without being anoyed by a patrolman?

help appreciated. Thanks

LOL...

Well, if traffic ever does let up in L.A. then 90mph is the norm.

You try 90 mph in Phoenix you better say cheese...about every 4-5 miles.

Oh, Carpool violators in LA are shot on the spot...That is a huge Fine....and you cannot jump in and out of Carpools lanes in L.A....

Stay in southern California, please, or whereever you are now. Anyone who's that obsessed with their commute time, or who wants to do 90 on a freeway during non rush hour (there are enough of those here already), I'd just as soon not have here. JMO.

I guess you must not have a problem with getting a $hi+load of Speedcam tickets in the mail.

You'll save some money by moving to Phx. because the cost of living is cheaper than Socal, but you'll make up for it by paying all those speeding tickets churned out by the Radar cameras.

Lots o' luck!!!!!

Actually ever since those annoying cameras went up everywhere on the freeways I've noticed drivers have developed manners, LOL!

Yeah, if you speed on freeways in Phoenix you'll get a pretty picture of you and your car in the mail...it's not a glamour shot, but a NICE fine. The freeway paparazzi...

I would say LA just because I can't say much good about Phoenix.
