For those who drive into Boston,
Not that anyone here would ever think of exceeding the speed limit, but the following info may be of interest. At the Boston end of the Mass Pike is the Prudential Tunnel. It's about .25 miles long. They've just recently installed some new lighting in the tunnel. Under the lighting are some boxes that look like they could be auxiliary power supplies. They're not! They are radar speed detectors with high-speed cameras and, once the system is fully functional, will be part of the first unmanned speed trap in the Boston area. You won't know that you've been bagged until your ticket shows up in the mail. Also, FYI, the speed limit in the tunnel and for the area .20 miles before and after the tunnel is 45 MPH. On the inbound side, it drops to 5 and then to 20!! Spread the warning!!!
