Speeding Crackdown On DFW Connector

GRAPEVINE (1080 KRLD) – There’s a new crackdown on speeders in that massive Grapevine freeway project.

The speed limit on the DFW Connector, where 114 and 121 meet, was dropped from 60 to 50 a month ago, but a lot of drivers aren’t slowing down.  So Grapevine Police Lieutenant Todd Dearing says officers are writing tickets.

Dearing wants drivers to avoid texting and talking on cell phones as they make their way through the zig-zag lanes. Since it’s a work zone, the fine on that ticket you get could be doubled.

    You don’t still believe that this is about safety do you? Really?

    This is about the $$$$$ to cities. Safety got nuttin’ to do with it.

    Follow the money…..see where that goes.

    I don’t know of any road where the overall accident rate has been positively impacted by cops writing tickets.

    Speeding goes down-yes, ticket revenue goes up-you betcha…but the baseline accident rate doesn’t change until less folks drive on the roadway. It is more dependent on the number of cars on the road than the speed they’re driving.
