    In the US we have minimum speed limits
    For instance under 45mph or over 65mph id usually posted as a speed limit
    And I know of peeps that earned tickets for going UNDER the speed limit

    You may have gotten the egregious violator bonus ticket.

    No sympathy even for the correct ticket, though. I live in NY and would have ticketed you myself.

    When I was doing a contract project management gig at a hospital in a medium-small town, most of the streets were posted 29 MPH. I never got a good explanation for that.

    I once got two speeding tickets in one day (radar boxes, so got them in the mail later). I was driving my mother-in-law to the train station ... :whistling:

    Exactly. Going to New England last year the average speed across multiple lanes was around 80 mph, nothing below, unless there was a wreck.

    i'm sure anyone not drunk or high would know for sure if they were going 91 mph or not... sorry you are getting the business.

    i used to have to drive to work through hainesville, a town in illinois that is/was in the guinness book of world records for giving speeding tickets.

    1 mile an hour over and they get ya, not joking, and when you go to court they they hammer you for every cost and fine, no one gets a break.
