Anywhere along Rt 19

Summersville, West VirginiaFeb 01, 20020 Comments

I would love to see this place exposed on a program such as "60 Minutes"! Speed limit is 50 mph and drivers are given no leaway. If you get a ticket don’t bother to fight it. The courtroom is an autotorium with the only thing missing is the kangaroos on the walls. They tell you they have a unique "thing" in Summersville…Driving school. You can take their "driving school" for the cost of your fine as I did and if you pass the test at the end your violation "never happened". However, the instructor didn’t want to give the hour long class and opted to just give us the test (with his help on the questions…ie: "#17 is false, #19 true". The toughest question probably was "If your going to drink and drive, always drink light beer because it has less alcohol" 🙂 What a racket they have there!!!!! Being they give the "driving school" the city get ALL your money whereas normally the fine would be split between the city, state and county. BTW: If you HAVE to take the "driving school" because you cannot afford the points etc. on your driving record…don’t waste your time going there in person, go to there web site, enter your citation number and for another fee you can take the test online! Someone should really investigate this town!!!
