Normally, it's common to see a large group of motorcycles cruising Palm Avenue, except Wednesday a group of bikers were seen packing radar guns, flashing red & blue lights, and requesting autographs from would be speeder-bys.
In July, Patch reported that IB's motorcycle traffic deputy narrowly averted a layoff. I bet the drivers in these photos wish he had been...
Several cars on the Silver Strand were shocked into submission, on their way into town, when they were met with several motorcycle traffic deputies–armed and ready for the follow-the-speeder-leader game.
Everyone got a ticket, not just the leader of the pack. So much for the leader taking one for the team!
Several other speeders who made it past the first group of radar bikers–and thought they were clear to speed out of town–were met with more citation issuing bikers at Palm Avenue and Georgia Street.
At $235 per speeding ticket, the county was seen making nearly $2,000 - in less than 20 minutes! I guess that's one way to balance a budget.
No wonder the deputy averted a layoff. He's a profit center!
Did you get a ticket for speeding Wednesday morning?
