No respect, drivers hate you, yell nasty stuff, try to play chicken with you, no bathroom breaks, in summer, holding a metal lightning rod (sign), feet burn up to your freak'n knees and on and on.....
Yes, rain or shine!!
Do it a day and you will be glad you are not doing that job!!
Maybe community service doing the job where you sped through would change opinions.....
That might teach them something! Good idea.

You can't make things idiot proof, you can only make them idiot resistant.

given that PA turnpike is 80% construction zone maybe they should just drop the speed limit on it. MD started that 2 years ago, I think its a good thing though never really caused my any problems as I am at most a 10 over driver when not towing, and usually at the speed limit or max of 65 when I am towing.

It's definitely not a money making scheme. If it were a lot more people would be getting tickets. The State Police are more concerned with aggressive drivers & overall safe traveling.
