2 miles east of Arlington, going west bound

Arlington, OregonAug 13, 20110 Comments

Beware! I was stopped for going 82 in a 65 mph zone. I was not going 82, I had cruise set on 72 and it was working fine, as other cars were going around me. I informed her repeatedly that I was not going that speed and told her another vehicle had just passed me. She said that vehicle was clocked at 80 mph and I was doing 82 mph….and how does a car 80 mph pass a car going 82 mph??? As she handed me the ticket, she told me she did me a favor by reducing it to going over 75 mph, saving me $100. I’m still furious! I was definitely only going 72 mph, took off cruise and dropped to 70 or less as I went by her. I have only had 2 speeding tickets in my life (over 50 yrs old) and both were by Arlington, OR cops. I have only traveled through there less than 20 times in my life…figure the odds. Last time I was told I was going considerably faster than I thought I was too, but I didn’t know for sure because I was on a back road and did not have cruise control set. Since that time (5 years ago) I tip toe through that area….but they still nailed me for an unjustified ticket – $192. How does a person fight it???
