Speeding Ticket Revenue

Since the cities and towns and the Commonwealth’s Department of Transportation equally share in the fine revenues 50/50, they are both unjustly enriched as a result of illegal speed limit signs.  Conveniently, neither the cities and towns nor the Department has ever decided to exercise their authority to inspect and remove the fraudulently posted speed limits.  Due to this official government acquiescence, this long-standing, unconstitutional scheme continues unchecked.  Turns out, money really does drive speeding tickets (Boston Globe).
