Special probabtion protects dangerous drivers

Joe Mahr and Gerry Smith of the Chicago Tribune did a computer analysis of state police speeding tickets and driving records. They found that nearly two-thirds of the time, people caught going 100 mph or faster were given a special kind of probation that kept the tickets off their driving records. That included those triple-digit speeders cited for also weaving through traffic and those who wove around the highway that fast while drunk. One chronic speeder, given the deal once for going 100 mph plus, got the deal again after going even faster.
