  1. 31 speeding? 114 Traffic charges? Is this a misprint or a joke? There is a real problem with the HUGE number of drivers going 35 to 40 mph on Ft. Thomas Avenue (north and south). Also everyone goes 50 to 60 mph down Grand Avenue from Highland to the Pavilion. We should see at least a couple of hundred tickets for speeding in Fort Thomas every day. Not to mention violations for not stopping at stop signs. There is practically NO One that stops at a red octagonal sign. Have drivers forgotten what these mean? Every individual should be required to take a driving test every year and that would cut down on the idiot drivers who think they have to be some where before everyone else.

  2. You can pick up 100 failure to stop tickets at the bottom of Clover Ridge every morning between the hours of 6:30am and 7:30am. (Easy pickn's)
