Why Should We Enforce Traffic Laws?

The State of North Carolina issued a letter to justify enforcement of traffic laws "due to constant complaints about officers enforcing traffic laws. [It] is not considered minor in nature nor is it an attempt to collect money for towns or quotas." It then lists 10 mass murderers caught by traffic stops, and finishes with this: "So the next time you go through a license check or get stopped by an officer and think he or she should be doing something more constructive than traffic stops, think of these examples of the most dangerous and wanted murderers that were caught simply because they were not following simple traffic laws. We just might solve that break-in or assault or drug crime in a traffic stop in your community."

It sounds like they are making an argument for cameras in every room of every home and checkpoints on every corner. Hey, it could stop a murderer once every few years.

This is the best they can come up with?? 10 cases from across they country spanning decades is the justification for tens of thousands of traffic tickets written by cops in the state. They would have come across better (and a whole lot more honest) if they just stated "without the revenue from traffic stops each person would have to pay X more in taxes".
