I was driving west on the edge of town when I noticed a blue police car off on the right hand side by in the trees, I drove by and he turned his lights on and pulled me over! Office side I was doing 42 in a 30 speed zone in the city limits, and up the road just 50 yards just in front of me was a 70 speed limit sign!
