CITED FOR NOT SPEEDING?
Check out the link in this rant. This involves a woman who was doing 63 in a 65 on I95 in Maryland. She was cited for failure to go to the right. This is interesting because according to the Maryland State Police she should have been going faster than the posted limit apparently because she was holding up traffic. The wind at the time was going at 40 mph. She said she had actually slowed down because of the wind.
I really have a problem with this. If this woman loses this case will it establish a precedent for traffic enforcement. As far as I am concerned the speed limit applies to all lanes of traffic. Not only that speedometers are not really specifically on the mark. That is why most departments allow a variance regarding speeding citations.
If this goes in the favor of the state will it result in citations out the butt for this type of offense. After all it will be an easy pop for the police. When you are driving you could be going too slow or too fast at any point in time at all. It would also be a good source of money for the state so I suppose the liberals will like it.
In reading some of the blogs there are a lot of people that believe the police did a good thing. It is a good thing I suppose if you either like to drive fast or you don’t like people that keep you from driving fast.
I also believe that it is a good thing to obey the traffic laws to keep everyone safe and not speed because you believe you will not get caught.
Integrity is doing the right thing when no one is watching.
