Island Law

When Belle Isle became a state park in February, it also became Detroit's biggest speed trap. As of Monday, State troopers had executed 329 traffic stops and 55 arrests on the island. Even speedster Mayor Duggan was pulled over a few months ago. The numbers may come off as overly-aggressive (especially when Brenda Jones makes them up), but only a small number of traffic stops have resulted in actual tickets. [Freep]
