I think this is true.  Someone, please tell me if I am wrong but there is no
such graciousness to be had in Massachusetts.

And a word to the wise:  Be extremely vigilant and careful on Route 181,
Route 9, or Route 202 in the vicinity of Belchertown, Massachusetts -- about
10 miles SE of Amherst.  There are some extraordinarily good roads near
there, brand spanking new, that *invite* you to exceed the posted limit (45
MPH in some places on a 4-lane highway) but if you do, be aware that the
Belchertown police are like a steel leg trap.  BANG!  And they *mean it.*
Also be very careful on the nice, smooth backroads in and arround
Sturbridge/Holland.  They will seduce you in the same way, and the cops are
*right* around the corner when you least expect them.  We have a lot of
motorcyclists in this area and the police are well aware of the revenue
potential.  They will get you every single time if you don't have a good
detector, quick response time, and/or an angel on your shoulder.  How do I
know, you ask?  I live in the building that used to be the police station in
Holland and therefore I know the Chief of police here pretty well.
