For any of those who have the heavy foot syndrome like I do here is an FYI. Now this info was passed on to me this morning. If any of it is incorrect, remember, don't kill the messenger...
Tennessee will launch a 30-day speeding ticket frenzy beginning July 31, 2006.
The state of Tennessee estimates that 9 million dollars will be generated in speeding tickets. 1 million will go to pay state troopers overtime.
There will be 57 state troopers on duty at all times patrolling.
They will be patrolling the following:
I-24 east and west
I-40 east and west
I-65 north and south
I-75 north and south
Now 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 minutes. They have issued 30 brand new unmarked Crown Victoria cruisers and they are bringing all their part timers on full time. Supposedly 101.5 FM confirmed all of this.
