Spokane: No Place For Drivers

Next time you complain about our local speed traps, or taxes spent on our local Idaho police departments, please do a reality check. Take a drive over to Spokane and remind yourself why we live in Idaho. Anarchy rules in Spokane. Traffic laws are not enforced; there is no need to signal a turn, stay under the speed limit, or follow any rules at all. If your house is burglarized the police don't come to your house to check on it; they tell you to get in touch with your insurance company. Crime and gangs run the roost. I challenge anyone to find a police officer in Spokane/John Willard, of CdA, letter in Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Are drivers in Kootenai County/North Idaho better ones than those in Spokane?
