Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those timid spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat !

Yup, you'll find those signs throughout the US. I've yet to meet anybody who ever got a speeding citation as a result of a patrol aircraft. More often than not, it’s due to police speed traps where they hide behind brush or some other obstacle. :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:
