151 violations after the news media had been warning everybody, throughout the weekend, the enforcement was going to happen. Just imagine how much worse it is when the jerks are not warned ahead of time.

Such stylish enforcement of the law accomplishes nothing. What trendy new procedure will they be enforcing next week at KPD? How about a "happy meal" at you're neighborhood hamburger stand gunfight!
