Speed Traps Targeting Aggressive Drivers

OAKLAND COUNTY (WWJ) – Drivers might want to watch their speeds if they’re driving along I-696 on Tuesday.

State and local police will be out writing speeding tickets in a series of speed traps that officers say are designed to save lives.

On Monday, when “Operation Day-life Savings” kicked off, officers wrote over 30 tickets to drivers along I-75. They’ll be out along I-696 between 11am and 7pm. On Wednesday, officers will be patrolling on I-94. They’ll be issuing tickets for speeding and aggressive driving.

After Wednesday, the campaign will return May 16-20, June 13-17, July 18-22 and August 15-19.

Speeding tickets range from $50 to $80, or could even be higher.

    Just another means of Revenue Enhancement. What the heck, a good way to pay their salaries.

    If there is enough notification of the speed or its changing of speed, it is not a speed trap. Yes, there are a few jurisdictions in Michigan with un-ethical police practices, but they are the minority. Stay within 5 miles of the limit and you’re fine.

    It’s about time they come out, I only see them on Sunday mornings grabbing the Church goers on empty roads rather than the jerks who think commute means NASCAR
