The speeding still occurs.The accidents come more from other causes like
running red lights,inattention to driving,improper lane
changes,tailgating,reckless driving,etc. Some US police departments get the
majority of their budget from speeding tickets.There's one in Ohio that
issues speeding tickets on an Interstate that runs through their town,even
though there's NO entrance or exit IN their town.The size of their police
dept. more then doubled,IIRC,solely to write more speeding tix.
