This "study" is too limited. By only checking four intersections in two counties, there's a chance it's only the opinion of 2 police stations... Or perhaps it's only the opinion of 2 police officers... This isn't a true study at all.

it says two countRies not counties, haha!

I know there's "sources" listed on here, but New Hampshire speeding tickets are *not* $1000.

Most expensive non-court-issued fine for speeding is approximately $360.
