1st pl. and hwy 75(osage)
The speed limit going south on hwy 75 goes from 35mph to 45 mph near 1st pl which is just a half road as it doesn’t intersect the hwy. I was stopped 1.5 miles south of 1st. pl. The officer said sorry it took me so long to get to you. After taking my license and insurance came back said you were going 49 in a 35 and said I’m giving you a ticket for general speeding it’ll save you $30. The ticket was $128. I have a clean record. Pled not guilty, returned for hearing where acting judge said he would be the jury (and prosecutor). I asked officer why it took him so long to get to me, he said he had to pull out into traffic. He also said I was the only car around when he clocked me. Judge said speed limit changes at the sign, in a line perpendicular to the road and cops can travel 90 mph in pursuit. It wasn’t me because I was in traffic, and wasn’t going 49. Judge said could you have been going 36? “I could have or I may have been going 34.” Then by your own admission you are guilty of general speeding, I’ll lower your fee to $100. If you want to appeal it, you’ll have to go to district court. And it will cost you a lot more said the court reporter. Officer has a record of speeding and has been seen numerous times speeding up and down the hwy with lights on .
