Having just posted on the topic of traffic enforcement, and the true causes of traffic deaths, I was pleased to come across the audio of Reed Hillman's appearance on the Howie Carr radio show recently. (It's on the campaign website; today it's front screen bottom, but nose around.) Hillman, the Republican Lieutenant Governor candidate, is a former Colonel of the State Police and knows a thing or two about traffic enforcement and public safety. He understands that speeding tickets don't make roads safer. As Colonel, he told his troop commanders to use creative methods of improving safety such as targeting high-fatality roads and using public education campaigns rather than merely issuing citations for speeding.
Whether his election as Lieutenant Governor would have any effect on the State Police ticket policies is unknown. But he'd certainly have a lot of influence over who gets appointed as the Secretary of Public Safety and as Superintendent of the State Police.
Just another reason to vote for him.
