Decline in Police Enforcement of Speed by Aircraft - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.
The intimidating signs "Speed Enforced by Aircraft” are still posted (mostly on rural highways), but the threats behind the signs are coming up empty with state budgets cuts.
As reported by AolAutos.com, California has cut way back on using its aircraft resources for speeding tickets. The California Highway Patrol still has 15 planes used to catch speeders, but spokeswoman Fran Clader said that since the department's annual air operations budget has dropped from about $12 million to $8 million, aircraft became more focused on supporting searches and pursuits. Even with drastically reduced aerial patrols, the signs remain posted and serve as a deterrent. When drivers see the signs warning of aerial, or radar, monitoring, it reflexively causes them to check their speed and adjust downward to avoid getting a ticket. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets
