Abstract

"North by East" piece on the tactics used by Maine State Police troopers patrolling the Maine Turnpike for speeders. Lieutenant Randall Nichols admits that patrols are getting more sneaky, using nondescript vehicles, and setting speed traps in which two officers camouflaged as survey workers use lasers mounted on their tripods. Nichols reports that it is not at all uncommon for troopers to clock drivers at 100 miles per hour or more. In the course of a four-hour stakeout, the officers typically write up to 100 tickets.
