For the next four Tuesdays, Country Rover Tom Skinner turns Road Rover.
Equipped with a radar gun we bought over the Internet and checked for accuracy with the police, Tom is heading out to neighborhoods and school zones around eastern Carolina.
What he found in his first report was more drivers exceeding the speed limit than not. Even in a school zone outside Eastern Elementary in Washington people were driving 10 or 15 miles over the speed limit.
If you're caught and convicted of speeding in a school zone, it's a manditory 3 points against your license plus a fine, court costs, and in many cases a hike in what you pay for car insurance.
If you would like him to check out speeders in your neighborhood or near your school just email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
