Straight BullshIt

I got a speeding ticket for going 55 ina 45 mph zone. When in reality, it is a 55 mph zone so I really got a ticket for going 55 mph in a 55 mph zone. This is some straight bull shit.

Below is a diagram of when the officer spotted me going 55 in a 55.

I also got a fix-it ticket for my modified exhaust. I have a loud ass skunk2 exhaust. I gotta figure out a way to get off of this shit.

I think as long as you see the sign. You don't do 55 up to a stop sign and hit the brakes as you pass the stop sign.

if you can read the sign, then the limit is what is posted on the sign.

check with a lawyer about your state, in MD if you can make out the sign, that is the limit. thumbsup

Don't get it mixed up. It's just a matter of the officer thinking that the area was a 45 mph zone. That particular stretch of road is about 2-3 miles long and the whole thing is a 55 mph zone. Throughout the whole ordeal, the officer and I were in the 55 mph zone.

I don't know of any 45 mph zone within atleast 5 miles of the site of where I was ticketed.

then, simply take the ticket to court, and show that the area you were pulled over in is a 55 mph zone, and the ticket says 55.

Just a cop looking to make a quick $70. Pigs. thumbsdown

Also, if your exhaust is legal, make sure you show that.

Don't let them hassle you, my guess is the cop was hoping you'd just send the money in and not care, since 10 over isn't that bad a ticket.

Lame. thumbsdown

it's just bad for the great cops that are out there that they have to deal with the negative effects caused by a few.
