The child molester or rapist relies on anonymity to be able to commit his deeds. When forwarned, society watches these people to prevent recurrence.

Their crimes are not committed in public.

Speeding, on the other hand, is a very public offense - anyone else on or near the road is able to see it.

Practically no one knows when I've had a speeding ticket to respond in ways to protect themselves from my apparently bad driving.

Both crimes are punished, with child molesters having their information mentioned in public and before a judge.

I would suggest the child molester becomes practically more visible once in the papers than one who speeds.
