A local politician was pulled over in a well known speed trap.
The police represented a local municipality with less than 1/8 of a
mile jurisdiction over the highway (just an overpass, no on or off ramp
- the officer has to leave his city to get on the highway).  The town budget
is $280K and its ticket revenues were $273K.  The rep drove back to the 
state house and wrote up a bill which outlaws speed traps from cities with
 less than 1/2 mile jurisdiction or on/off ramps.  The locals claim that
this is illegal and say that public safety is endangered, so they still ticket
people.  The Ohio supreme court is going to have to settle it.
