Watch out! Traffic enforcement for April fools

The RGJ reports that a Two-week driving crackdown starts Monday in Reno area.

“The Sparks Police Department announced it will put two extra officers to target speeders, motorcycle violations and people who use cell phones while driving.”

In other words, “bad driving” is about those behaviors easy to enforce but having very little to do with traffic crashes. This is how law enforcement stimulates cynicism and disrespect for the ‘system’. It also tends to reduce safety as drivers are looking for cops rather than paying attention to traffic.

So watch out for speed traps in early April. If you get cited, take it to court. That will at least get the cop off the street for a while to explain to the judge why he gave you a ticket. That might just make things out on the street safer for a little while.
