Known about this trap for years,but got snagged in the 55-45 drop last year. Waited quietly while officer explained my infraction and then he asked if I had any questions. I said yes, where is your badge number? He pointed to the citation where he had written his badge number. I said no, where is your uniform badge with number displayed as required by state law…..he had none. He mumbled some thing and we went our separate ways. I decided to contest this ticket like I do all my speeding tickets. Only thing a bigger joke than the speed trap in Lott is their court system. Pled not guilty before the judge and set up a court date, judge tells me I need to post a personal recognisance bond. Talked to several bondsmen in my city about getting a PR bond for a speeding ticket and they just laughed at me and told me that is just not done. Called her honor back in Lott and told her what trouble I was having getting PR bond, she said no problem, gave me the number of a “local” bondsman who could help me out. Went to local bondsman, an old gas station with a wrecker yard working out of it and for $75 got my PR bond. Presented it to honorable Judge Lott and told me they would mail me notice when to appear for my trial. About a year and a half later received a letter from Lott court that all charges had been dropped. So I guess you can plead not guilty in Lott and win but they are going to drag at least $75 out of you for doing it

was this tagged prima facie?
