Funny it's kinda just the opposite here. Cops are getting more and more lax about speeding, since their efforts seem to be concentrated mainly on nabbing people for DUIs. I've passed cops plenty of times at 10 over the speed limit and they don't even look. I usually set my cruise 5-6 over, but they're not ridiculous in catching people unless they're going really fast. The 5-10 over segment is a small fine, I think a little over $100. Higher than that makes them a couple more bucks, but still they really only care about getting as many DUI convictions as they can. Wisconsin can make almost $2000 off a DUI when you add everything up. I was pulled over twice in one night for a burned out headlight and both cops just wanted to come up and smell my breath more or less and let me go with a verbal about the light.
