Use a decrepit car to slow down speeders

Well, it’s a beautiful day in the neighbourhood, until you go out driving.

It seems there are a lot fewer speeders after the police blitzed the highway around the summit (Malahat), some must not be rich enough to pay the bill I guess, which makes the drive more pleasant.

There are still the tailgaters (even at 95-100 km/h) going from Goldstream north, and the people who cut you off (taking away the following distance you allow), so here is my nickel (inflation).

Hey you guys — the evil enforcers — why don’t you just park some vehicles in strategic locations so as to slow down some of the weirdos, use a car that’s due for a trade-in, leave the outside the same and gut it — it only costs the gas and time to get it there (and back) — if it’s a piece of junk put it to use.

You could even put a camera in it with a blinking light — you could have fun with that. It still works, just no tickets — you can be catching meth dealers at the same time. Yeah, I know, what a silly idea. Don’t call it a bait car, call it a ___?

Thanks guys.
