Is using radar detectors to assist in violating traffic laws consistent with
the principals of scouting? Does it really send the right message to the youth
riding with you? I recommend leaving it at home and setting the right example
for your scouts. Many boys going to the JAMBO will be driving real soon and
need the best example possible for safe driving. We lose to many teen age
boys to traffic accidents. I drive faster than I should many times. I do not
with scouts in the car.

There are fairly good sized signs just inside the state border on all
Yes, out-of-staters constantly challenge it, but consistently lose.
I don't believe the ICC is in any way involved in that. It's part of
the "Law and Order" campaign to reduce highway deaths and increase
compliance with speed laws.
