  • Another revenue generating ploy by Suffolk County, as they know that the more affluent and wealthy motorists live in Suffolk County, especially those Hamptonites who love to fly down the LIE in their Ferraris and Lambourghinis at over 100mph. I don’t condone speeding and anyone going that fast should be pulled over, but I think Suffolk Highway Patrol will also target people going so much as 2-5 miles over the limit to generate revenue for the county.
