Driving in Grand Forks
NoiseInsideMyHead posted a topic in CommunityI looked back several years and did not see a one-place-fits-all thread for driving, traffic, construction, etc., so have at it, boys and girls! Saw this at the Herald's website just now, http://www.grandforksherald.com/news/4092767-police-beefing-traffic-enforcement-gateway-drive There are only a couple of possibilities here: (1) people are scofflaws, or (2) the posted speed limits are too low. Don't know about you, but I vote (2). Gateway/Hwy 2 is, in addition to being a designated U.S. highway, a divided, limited access arterial road with smooth pavement, a level surface, wide shoulders, raised median, and good visibility. In other words, it's good for 45-50 mph, easy. I always understood that traffic data tending to show a disproportionate amount of speeding was used to evaluate speed limits and (gasp) sometimes even raise them to conform with reality. Yet, the GFPD's knee-jerk response here is to "beef up traffic enforcement on Gateway Drive." I'm shaking my head at this one. Revenue over common sense? Thoughts?

I found this quote from the article to be…um, interesting: Because those extra 2 mph really do make a difference.
