Speeding crackdown on I-95
The police were putting on quite a show Tuesday evening on Interstate 95 south of Baltimore between 7:30 p.m. and 8 p.m.
The stretch of about 2 miles between Caton Avenue and the Beltway was lit up like a Christmas tree with flashing police lights. There were four police cars or motorcycles within that short stretch that had pulled over motorists. Another two officers of the Maryland Transportation Authority Police were lying in wait.
When I was younger I might have thought "pigs." At my advanced age, I have to say I was gratified to see the traffic laws actually being enforced.
For a few miles drivers seemed to actually drive in a relatively subdued manner. But by the time we hit the Patapsco River bridge, it was back to the races. It was good to have a few minutes' break from the insanity though. Thanks, officers.
