Imagine my Suprise….

Talk about your “big brother” syndrome, guess what I had waiting on me when I got home. A traffic ticket from Ridgeland, South Carolina. Yep, evidently the town of Ridgeland has speed traps set up on their seven mile stretch of I-95. I wondered what that blinding flash was that almost made us swerve over into that bridge abutment. The envelope showed up at our house with a copy of my license photo, a photo of my tag and a picture of the driver. I aint paying it. In fact, I’m going to go back down there and fight it.

They said I was going 82 in a 70. That seems to be a popular speed of speeders. I think there are over 1900 folks who got caught in the same speed trap and guess what, they all were doing 82 in a 70. Coinkydink???

Anyway, it’s against SC state law to use hidden camera speed traps unless there’s a declared emergency and the ticket has to be hand delivered within an hour of the infraction.

Oh yeah, also they don’t charge you any points on your license. I smell a rat.

More to follow as there’s a class action law suit against the town.


Oh yeah, I almost forgot, I wasn’t even the driver; Brother was driving.

  2. I’m no barrister, Mike.

    I’m thinkin’ JD, might be your best source of legal advice with respect to this despicable, photo entrapment…

    The new, Republican, Congress should probably get involved “hip deep” in this damnable 1984 chicanery…

    I’d write both of yer Senator’s and yer “wingnut Congressperson”…

    Post haste…!
