cz14: ONLY THE REGULAR CITIZENS GET TICKETS -- NOT ONE POLICE OFFICER WHILE IN THEIR PRIVATE CAR OR ANY OF THEIR WIFES--OR ANY MEMBER OF THE FIRE DEPT OR THEIR WIFES OR ANYONE THAT HAS A POSITION WITH CITY GOVERNMENT.---AND THERE ARE A LOT OF THEM STOPPED AND THEN TOLD TO HAVE A GOOD DAY.I WAS RIDEING WITH A FRIEND OF MINE THAT IS A FIREMAN---WE WERE STOPPED FOR 50 IN 30 MILE ZONE AND AS SOON AS HE SHOWED THE OFFICER HIS BADGE HE WAS TOLD SLOW DOWN AND HAVE A GOOD DAY. CALL CITY HALL AND ASK HOW MANY WARNING TICKETS WERE ISSUED.---ONE OFFICER TOLD ME THAT ON DUTY HE IS REQUIRED TO MAKE 10 TRAFFIC STOPS---THAT WILL PAY FOR THAT MOTORCYCLE REAL FAST.

Pete: Agree with your "follow the money" analysis Birdsong. Another aspect to this story is to notice the "lawlessness" and "unsafe conditions" occurring in HH and CC. Note these municipalities ticket totals are significantly lower! Can our paid and elected officials explain this discrepancy? LOL. No they can't because they won't admit to the financial windfall which is their true motivation.

familybirdsong: Follow the money. It's all about the money not safety. I got ticketed for passing a barrier for telling the speed limit sign was 38 yards off the road not the required 6 foot. The officer in charge told me it wasn't their responsible to get the sign move. He got mad when I told him this wasn't safe. Told me to get the hell away. The speed trap had 5 cop cars darting in and out of traffic issuing tickets like blood in the water. When I told him he was morally wrong he called one of his cops to issue me a ticket. Safety NO it's all about revenue. Btw I'm fighting the ticket.

Pete: No apples and oranges mixed here. Killeen is a corporation (as in incorporated city) and it has $25 million in the bank. Corporations have been cutting worker hours for 30 years and shipping jobs overseas since NAFTA and before. Look how well Mexico is building its middle class while our economy is becoming haves and have nots, except for the patriotic, flag waving, thank you for your service corporations (including municipalities). And it shouldn't be obvious who I voted for because there is no use in voting democratic in "Fox News" country Texas.

Fran: For "Pete's sake", don't let your envy card show. Nothing wrong with having adequate police protection in our communities. The police deserve the utmost respect! While your expression is against anyone having a 40 hour week job, its not the fault of these civil servants. Since you did a mix of apples and oranges between what the topic was and your comments, the new healthcare law,known as obamacare, is the main reason people's hours have been cut back. If you do not understand that, then its obvious for whom you voted for. You voted for the "Change", now continue to drink the Kool-aide and you will be right by morning (not)..I am for one, one who pays Federal taxes as oppose to those who get back more than they paid in withholding taxes, etc. and am happy to see some Federal money come back into the community.

Baylor: Come to think of it, I have been driving since 64, never been stopped by KPD. I just go the speed limit and things seem to turn out fine.

Pete: Oh and the police get overtime while regular citizens can't 40 hours at a living wage? I'm sure the folks with the power (extra money) will be having some great holidays huh? While those they "serve" will be trying to come up with the money to give to the clerk at that new payment window. I feel so much safer now, because those in charge tell me I am. Ha ha.

Pete: I'm shocked. Texas accepting FEDERAL GRANT MONEY!! Yet no outrage from the weekly commenters here? It is quite unsettling to me that you don't find this "government handout" as repulsive as you do enabling citizens to be able to afford healthcare or nutritious food. Guess in some instances you are for BIG government huh?

Fran: Its obvious to probably everyone, that the closer one travels to or near the Ft Hoodarea, that the drivers act more reckless. I obey the traffic signs, including the speed limit. I do not like seeing my vehicle insurance costs go up to pay for these people's rants while driving, but it does, such as going from the high speed lane of a three lane road and then turning hard right across all the three lanes onto a ramp for Ft Hood at the last minute. It does not me "feel" compassionate for the people who get into crashes (accidents) while they attempt to drive like they possess professional NASCAR driver skills. They risk other driver's lives and I know that the Army teaches risk management. One can see that a majority are soldiers, because they are in uniform while driving. That brings about a negative image for the Army. So, I applaud the police handing out the tickets and hope they continue to do so. If they can't afford their car insurance as a result, let them ride a bicycle to post.

Bubba: My deepest desire is for them to ticket the left lane hogs.

Eliza: Agree with others, Good that the police have been able to stop and ticket as many that story has made note of .We have an international population and all have their own driving habits.We need more out on the street looking for these law breakers. The neighborhoods have their own culprits as well.

texpa1: With all the speeding that occurs on 190, funding an aggressive program to fine these individuals could result in the highway construction project, the addition of extra police officers, the addition of a few new patrol cars, and the down town project, being paid for without any increase in taxes !!!!!!!

OldWoman: I would love to have some sort of speeding control in residential areas, where the streets are straight and wide, and the fools race through yield and stop signs on a daily basis as if on a dare. Our kids are not safe, people pulling out of their properties are not safe. I have started to yield on a straight away, not knowing if some crazed idiot is not racing to his dealer at the bottom of the hill. One of these days we will have a major, deadly accident, and then everybody will want to come up with laws to prevent this tragedy.

barbie500: I for one am glad they are out there giving tickets. The speeding in Killeen makes one think they are on a racetrack. The 55 mile in the work zone is totally ignored by everyone and sometimes you will look over on the access road and the people are passing you.

Signing in from multiple locations may be the cause.
