Yeah, I wrote that. But only because that's what people seem to be saying.
Certain lead-foots, that is.
Livonia was recently tagged as the city with the worst "speed traps" in the State of Michigan.
It's not exactly clear how this designation was arrived at, but with its announcement last week, there was some scuttlebutt, as you can imagine.
The lead-foots contend that this surely means that motorists are being ticketed with glee by overzealous Livonia police officers, who should be doing things like "going after the REAL criminals."
Livonia's police chief, of course, shrugs it off.
"That (designation) doesn't bother me a bit," said chief Robert Stevenson. "We don't have speed traps. We just enforce the law."
The designation was announced by the National Motorists Association. According to a story in the Free Press, the organization said they identified cities by using data from their National Speed Trap Exchange, where people share information about speed traps.
