No, you misunderstand. I don’t mind getting tickets if I speed, what I want is accountability in both directions. When the speed limit is 50, don’t blow by me doing 80. It’s insulting to the cop’s fellow taxpayers.
I do think, at least in my area, that some speed limits are unaccountably low, so I assume they’re money-makers, but hey, you need revenue, and arresting heroin addicts doesn’t really bring any. Again, just a little integrity in both enforcing and following the laws. If the speed limit is so low that a reasonable adult has difficulty holding it, raise the limit.
I feel the same way about lawmakers. Conservative or liberal - just exhibit some fucking integrity and we’ll be fine. I just want the people making the big decisions to live with them like I do, not to have some posh taxpayer-provided insurance plan that they keep forever along with the pension they get after “serving,” and then feed me to the donors making them rich.
