      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Speed Trap at Aurora Bridge

Recommended Posts

FYI I've seen a pesky bike cop clocking Northbound speeders at the Northend of the Aurora Bridge. Seems like they should be busy eating donuts or somthing.

The Aurora Bridge has lanes narrower than commonly allowed, and has been the scene of several deadly accidents. I have also seen cars traveling in excess of 60 MPH on that road. Is this really a speed trap, or are they trying to keep the general public safe from dangerous assholes?

They'd have locked you up if they wanted to do that.

It's good to know all the rapes, murders, and robberies have been solved and the man hours are now available for such important crimes.

There were more than 3 times as many deaths caused by traffic accidents in WA state than murders in 2005/2006 (647 vs 190).

use google for the other

 

the point is this idea that enforcing speeding laws is a "waste of time" is a stupid one.

Not arguing your point at all, Stephen, just that if you're going to quote stats, cite the source. ;)
