    State Police need to be out there more. They should raise the speeding fines to $1000 for 10mph over the speed limit, and $50 for every mile over that, rather than keep taxing taxpayers for everything, and raising property taxes all the time. Maybe if they raise the fines up higher, people would slow down. A $100 fine isn’t a big deal to people. Maybe a $1000 might be. Could very well be a good solution for speeders, in town and on the highways
