Exclamation How Not To Run A Speed Trap

NMA Article: How Not To Run A Speed Trap

policetape

You know you’re running a blatant speed trap when other police agencies start warning the public about your officers.


Most police agencies try to keep their speed traps somewhat subtle. That way they can collect as much money as possible without having to deal with angry motorists going to local government or the media.


Romulus, Michigan police obviously don’t subscribe to that philosophy.


Check out an excerpt from this delightful story:


Romulus police officers are being so aggressive that another police agency is warning drivers to be wary of a so-called “speed trap.”


Detroit Metropolitan police are outing Romulus officers who are pulling over drivers for speeding in the area of Interstate 94 around the airport.


[...]


The Wayne County Airport Authority has even begun circulating fliers that read, “The Romulus Police Department has dramatically increased its patrols at the entrances and exits to Detroit Metropolitan Airport, using unmarked vehicles. Please be careful to observe all speed limits and traffic laws.”


Airport officials said they plan on turning the flier into a billboard and will leave it up until the Romulus police stop targeting those entering and leaving the airport.


The airport police chief sent out an e-mail to officers telling them to park in front of a Romulus police patrol car if you see one and turn on overhead lights to warn drivers to slow down.


Read the full story here.
