I haven't been online much the past few days. I am mad as hell! I got my first speeding ticket on Saturday.
The officer said I was doing 60 mph in a 45 mph zone. BULL! I was coming off of a round exit ramp at 30 mph in a mini van with two kids and my mother in law...AND approaching a red light.
Seriously, HOW THE HECK COULD I HAVE BEEN DRIVING AT 60mph???
I politely asked the officer if he didn't mean to pull over the black car flying along side the right of me and he said "no! You were doing 60mph!"
He wrote me up for 54 mph ($111) instead of the 60 mph ($236). But I still have to go to traffic school to get the points removed from my driver's license so my auto insurance doesn't consider me "high risk"! What a pain.
I considered contesting in court, but I hear it's no use as the judge usually sides with the cop. I mean, it's his word against mine, so why would a judge listen to me.
So yes, five days later I am still angry as hell! Anyone else ever get a ticket they feel was not warranted?
