He also spoke of the dangers of not having a system and why it could be breaking the law:

Hays' received a speeding ticket recently, and noticed he didn't see a traffic sign on the corner of North and Highland where he was pulled over. He took a virtual tour through Google Earth, and found an accident happened in 2012 where the sign was ran over. It hasn't been replaced since then. He is currently seeking help from the Council, and will meet back with them in a month after gathering more details.
