Operation ELF, Enforcing Limits and Fining speeders. Funny I seemed to have missed this Christmas special on TV. In Operation Elf there is no Frosty, no Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer, no Santa and even no Burgermeister Meisterburger… only a police man dressed as an ELF giving tickets to speeders.
Here’s how it works: a sheriff’s deputy dressed as an elf clocks cars using a radar gun then dispatches a motorcycle deputy to pull them over and issue the driver a ticket.
More than 150 tickets were written in just over two hours Thursday.
Some people said using a holiday icon to enforce the law didn’t seem right. (Local 6 FL)
I guess the people caught speeding didn’t think it was more wrong to break the speeding limit than using a holiday icon. Don’t they realize it is the season of giving? Obviously the Orange County, FL police department was just following the spirit of the season as they gave out over 150 speeding tickets in two hours. Hopefully, the police Elf wished the ticketed motorists a safe, slow and Merry Christmas. Can’t wait to see what the Orange County police do next Arbor Day or Ground Hog Day.
