    From January 1993, Gordon Kimpel writes. . .

    ANNOUNCING A NEW ADDITION TO THE dB

    To satisfy the thirst for knowledge and the need to speed, a column of what is new around the U.S. that affects enthusiasts.

    Illinois enacted a law effective 1/1/93 that bans radar detectors in commercial trucks and buses. Police can ticket for detectors only when stopping a vehicle for another offense. Is this a way of getting their foot in the door toward a ban on detectors in cars also? After much lobbying, Connecticut finally repealed their detector ban October 1, leaving only Virginia and DC in the dark ages. New York has a ban for commercial trucks. In spite of the Institute for Highway Safety and other biased insurance groups doctored statistics, highway fatalities continue to decrease. For the 12 month period ending June 1992, fatalities dropped 5.6% compared to the previous year. GEICO and the Institute for Highway Safety realize the more speeding tickets issued equals additional surcharges they may charge these "dangerous" drivers.

    The State of South Carolina has turned down the 1992 BMW M5 that was present at the Florida Oktoberfest. BMW donated the car to South Carolina after announcing it was planning a manufacturing plant. State officials didn't think a BMW would be the right image. The car sits in a police garage in Columbia, S.C. Never over estimate the intelligence of a bureaucrat, especially those involved in highway "safety." ©

    Side note: Think South Carolina has gotten over BMW locating in their fair state?
