To All Motorists and The Pennsylvania Legislature:

Arming local police with RADAR is a thinly disguised attempt to unfairly tax safe motorists to fund the Legislature, the courts, the RADAR manufacturers, the police, and local municipalities by using half-truths and lies concerning highway safety.

RADAR should be banned in Pennsylvania. There is no epidemic crisis of speeding, only an epidemic crisis of highway engineering malpractice condoned by politicians seeking more and more money from safe drivers.

Speed as a cause of accidents when traffic is free flowing is a rare event, but this is when the majority of citations are written. Speed traps are staged where it is safe to drive faster.

Yet, 50 years of government propaganda and misinformation about highway safety makes it easy for our elected servants to declare that unless we give local police radar guns, everybody’s going to die! Far too many otherwise reasonable people agree, so the special interests who profit from RADAR, the politicians, the RADAR manufacturers and their army of lobbyests, the police, and the courts, get their go-ahead to unfairly tax drivers.

Arbitrary, unrealistic speed limits cannot be expected to reduce accidents and may, in fact, adversely affect traffic safety by confusing drivers and increasing speed differentials. Hunting down drivers with RADAR guns will not improve highway safety, and the unfair and unnecessary enforcement of too-low limits will foster contempt for law enforcement. Money is the one and only reason for RADAR, and the voters know this. Stop the nonsense and ban radar in Pennsylvania. Thank you.

Sincerely,
Tom McCarey Member, National Motorists Association
