Oh no, it's not a conflict of interest - GEICO is investing in speed
enforcement to keep YOU safe.  That and I have this cute little
bridge for sale that goes into Brooklyn.  

Insurance companies as a whole are, IMHO, a gigantic scam - we pay
pricey premiums in hopes of never using their services b/c we'll get
nailed to the wall with premium increases afterwards b/c we're now
"high risk".  Having been in and around the auto industry for years,
I avoid filing insurance claims like the plague.  I'd rather pay more
than my deductible to fix my junk than to have the insurance company
fix it for $500 (deductible) and then pay $1000 more per year for the
next 5 years until I become an "average" driver again.
