Gates, North Carolina Speed Traps
I was a truck driver. I received 3 tickets in 3 months. I was surprised to not see Gates listed as a speed trap. I received a ticket for going 3 miles an hour over the speed limit. I went to court and had it dropped to exceeding a safe speed. I went over to the side desk pay it and the officer took me down stairs to pay it. He told the lady down stairs I was charged with speeding. 3 days later I was in traffic going the speed limit, saw the same cop way up ahead, we all passed him, he pulled out on the road and came up and pulled in between me and the guy following me and pulled me over. He wrote me a ticket for exceeding a safe speed. I ask to see the radar, he told me he didn’t have to show me anything. I got another ticket for 5 miles an hour over and the limit, went to court the judge ask me how I pleaded I said not guilty and the judge say I can give you 30 days boy. So I shut my mouth, listen to the lies paid the ticket and left. I saw the judge sentence a guy to 6 months and then looked over at the cops sitting along the wall and winked at them, they started chuckling at each other.
I refused to drive my truck thru Gates after that. I think the cop much have thought I was the one messing with his wife.
