For the cash and run it states that a landscaper entered in a contract to perform landscaping work and was provided with a check (I am assuming a down payment for the work that was going to be done). The landscaper cashed the check but never returned to complete the work that was stated in the written contract. Pretty much he signed a contract to do something, got paid but never did the work. Hope that helps.

Hi Gerard and John, we're working on a follow up story from Tuesday's speed safety campaign. I'll keep you posted.

Gerard, if people were obeying the traffic laws and being responsible they would not have been pulled over. The police followed the protocol and made the public aware of what they doing. If people are still going to break the law they should be pulled over and fined. Each week I read on this website all of the DUI's (knowing only a small percentage of people are actually caught that drive while drunk). I am glad for the efforts of the police to help keep the roads safe for me and my family. So many people feel they are above the laws now. If people could be more accountable, and respectful we wouldn't need so many laws, to wear seat belts, cell phone use, correct lane changes, speeding, using signals etc. When going about our "normal activities" we are not "harassed" by police when we obey the laws.

Ann, Please check the original article last Tues. with the comments as they explore all of the issues, ramification and implications of what is going on here. It’s not about giving out speeding tickets it’s about our continued freedoms guareenteed by our constitution and its bill of rights instead of a bunch of money grabbing thugs (not the police but the politicians) who order them to do these citizen harassing things!
