Anyone from Cleveland who has spent any amount of time driving down I-71 to downtown knows that Linndale is a scam. A town of a few hundred people in the middle of Cleveland with a couple hundred feet of jurisdiction on the freeway. I got one of my two tickets there, and I know a lot of people who have also been hit there, even for going 5 over.

This is what they get. I feel bad for the person who got pulled over (kind of... you are supposed to pull off to the right), but this is precisely what the Linndale cops had coming.

Columbus had a town like that and they got theirs, but less tragically. New Rome had a couple of hundred feet of jurisdiction on a major road whose entire length was 35mph EXCEPT for the New Rome portion where it suddenly dropped to 25mph. The tickets funded a corrupt town council for years until the entire town was dissolved by an act of the state.

Newburgh Hgts is just as bad. Recently one of their cops had a simmilar accident on 77, I watched the report on the news and my reaction to it was the same as Jeff's.
