The Ghost of Waldo
“Glad tidings we bring, to you and your Kin”. No, it’s not Christmas time but an early present: Waldo City Council, Florida has voted 4-1 to dissolve it’s police force.
To recap, Waldo is one of the two cities in America labelled by “AAA” as “traffic traps”. These are cities that go out of their way to raise revenues from ticketing drivers passing through where their overzealous speed system, trips up users – see our previous article “Where’s Waldo? In Jail hopefully”.
The Waldo Police officers blew the whistle on their Chief at a public meeting, for giving them ticket quotas to meet. This was illegal under Florida law.
There is now one less public menace to the motorist but their sister city, Lawtey, still exists. Drivers on Florida US301 beware.
