Be Careful Out There

DUI Checkpoints will be set up this weekend along Route 611 in Upper Moreland Township. They usually set up the Checkpoint along Route 611 in front of the Best Buy, between the Turnpike and Fitzwatertown Road, but they could occur along any stretch of the road.
And also….
Starting today, Pennsylvania will launch a 30 day speeding ticket
frenzy.
The
state estimates that 9 million dollars will be generated in speeding
tickets. 1 million will go to pay state troopers’ overtime. There will
be 50 state troopers on duty at all times patrolling major intersections
and highways as well as smaller roads.
Main roads and more info after the jump.


They main roads are the following:
I-476 north and south
I-276 east and west
I-76 east and west
I-80 east and west
I-95 north and south
I-79 east and west
PA-202
PA-66
US-422
US-30
US-322
And many other roads and thoroughfares statewide.
5 mph above the limit can justify a ticket and every state trooper is
supposed to pull a car over and write a ticket every 10 to 20 minutes.
They have issued 30 brand new unmarked Dodge Charger Police cruisers and
are bringing in all of their part timers on full time. If you work in
Pennsylvania, you will probably take one of these highways. It’s up to
you how fast you are going when they clock you.
Driving Ticket fines have increased steadily in PA:
In addition, the price of a ticket for violation of PA Law 39:3-29
(failure to show your driver’s license, registration, or insurance card
at the time you are stopped) is going from $44.00 to $173.00.
Please make sure your vehicles have the proper documents in them. If you
jump in the car to run to the store and forget your wallet with your
license in it and you are stopped…. Oh well… you just spent $173.
And the fine for not having all three documents is $519!!!

    guess they have to raise some money for that 600 we’re getting back. He sez spend it into the economy but I plan on using mine in the black market on drugs or hookers.

    The checkpoints are true, the speed traps are false.
