As you enter town

Manderson, WyomingAug 01, 20230 Comments

My story is like so many others. I am a 62 year old woman that has not had a speeding ticket or a warning for speeding in her life. I stopped in Manderson, even though I do not believe I was speeding and especially not 9 miles an hour over the limit. There is a twist in my story that I will ad here. After talking to a police official back in my own hometown and describing what it happened, he indicated I should write a very nice letter and ask for leniency, so it is not reported on my record and felt that was the best I could do being out of state. I follow those instructions and wrote a very kind letter and two weeks later I was contacted by the town attorney. He said they were all pleased that I had written such a kind and respectful letter, and they don’t offer this to people often unless they have a CDL and drive for work, but they were willing to offer me their deferment program if I would send them another check for $250, pay at my own expense for safe, driving course, and maintain a clean record for the next 90 days. Obviously, I didn’t take them up on their “generous” offer. I recently consulted with an attorney friend of mine, who said that is considered extortion. Needless to say, I will never return to the state of Wyoming again.
