287 Northbound, just south of Memphis, TX
(Aside: We were out of state (Michigan) )
While driving in a 70MPH zone, I was doing 75 with *cruise control*. We get pulled over and the officer tells me I was doing 79. Thinking that was nuts, I asked if I could see the radar gun. He says “no.” I ask if I can get a print out from the radar gun. Again, “no.”
“Well gee, officer, is there anything you /can/ give me documenting my speed as you observed it?”
He wouldn’t even tell me how much the ticket would be, only that I would have to call the judge. When I called a week later, some lady informs me that the total would be around $140. I told her fine. She then interrupts me and says, “Now sir, for only $40 dollars more we can keep this off your record forever.” I thought, what is this, “Let’s Make a Deal?!” Still, what’s $40 bucks to make this thing disappear. I told her I would pay the extra fee.
When I asked how I can go about paying, she told me the only form of payment accepted was a MONEY ORDER MADE OUT IN THE JUDGE’S NAME. Not the clerk of courts, not the division of traffic safety, etc. No, I cut a money order out to some crook judge, who’s name I won’t list here, (judge’s initials deleted).
