Speeding Tickets – at Home?

Is this a case of a HOA gone wild, or does it make sense?

The Consumerist reports a homeowners association in Colorado is taking the law into its own hands, setting up subdivision speed limits and a radar system to monitor residents and visitors alike…

Drivers caught violating the max. 30 mph speed limit in the community will be subject for fines from anywhere from $15 to $100, depending on how fast they are driving.

If the violating driver is a visitor of the subdivision, their ticket will be given to whichever homeowner they are visiting at the time.

As you might expect with most HOA restrictions, some residents are not thrilled.

I wouldn’t be too thrilled about receiving somebody else’s speeding ticket, either.
