If you got a ticket for speeding on an Interstate Highway in Connecticut this weekend, you were driving in excess of 75MPH. You were lucky not to get a ticket for reckless driving...

Wonder how many of these people were already breaking the law by being here illegally. Remember...CT passes out driver's licenses to people here illegally like popcorn at the movies. What a joke.

For all those patting the state police on the back, keep in mind that numbers were down about 30% compared to 2013. And based on my observations, it wasn't because drivers were suddenly obeying traffic laws. Definitely less of a police presence on the roads this time around.
