Cops among Florida's worst speeders, Sun Sentinel investigation finds

We've all seen it, and now there's proof: Police officers sworn to uphold our traffic laws are among the worst speeders on South Florida roads.

A three-month Sun Sentinel investigation found almost 800 cops from a dozen agencies driving 90 to 130 mph on our highways.

Many weren't even on duty — they were commuting to and from work in their take-home patrol cars.

I followed an officer from exit 351 on I65 to Nashville one night that dropped below 110mph for only about 5 minutes. The old adage still holds--power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. But there's no check and balance in the system, so what can be done?
