Watch your speed!

For those who live in Hawaii, I just got this in my email. I don't know how to check if it's true, but figured it wouldn't hurt to pass it along:

On 4/ 1/08, the city and county of Honolulu will launch a 30-day speeding ticket frenzy. The city estimates that 9 million dollars will be generated in speeding tickets. 1 million will go to pay police overtime. There will be 50 police on duty at all times patrolling the 9 main thoroughfares.

They are the following:

H-3 both directions

H-2 both directions

H-1 both directions

Pali Hwy

Likelike Hwy

Nimitz Hwy

Kalanianaole Hwy

Kam Hwy

Farrington Hwy

Now 5 mph above the limit can justify a ticket and every officer is supposed to pull a car over and write a ticket every 10 minutes. They have issued 30 brand new unmarked cruisers and they are bringing all their part timers on full time.

Hey, don't complain too much. When I finally got my speed camera ticket, it said the allowance over the speed limit was 3 km/h...that ain't much :)
