VENICE, Sept. 5 — A city can post extra signs all over advertising the speed limit, and still motorists ignore it. A city can buy more radar-style guns and assign more men and women to operate them, and still motorists zoom heedlessly from place to place. So when police officers spotted Gino Mazzura barreling down one of Venice's major arteries the other morning at an unauthorized clip, they not only pulled him over and gave him a $200 ticket. They also impounded his vehicle. Mr. Mazzura would have to wait a whole week to get his motorboat back.
