Radar Gun, Radar Gun


Now they got ya.

A little Atlanta, Ga., suburb has enacted a $12 fuel surcharge on speeding tickets. That's to cover (doughnuts) the extra costs for pursuing speeders with $4-a-gallon gas.

It's supposed to rake in up $26,00 a year.

"I was hearing that Delta (Air Lines), pizza deliverers, florists were adding fuel charges to their services, and I thought, why not police departments?" the police chief says.

Hope no other cities read about this. Shhh.

Going slower, by the way, will up your gas mileage. Just don't turn up the Sammy too loud.

Very true on the speed/gas mileage comment. Want to save gas? SLOW DOWN!

I was driving with a friend a few weeks back, and while talking up the mpg of her old Toyota she was pushing ye old pedal to the metal on this 90's Toyota up all the hills. Yea, not so good on mileage now, is it?
