Gila Bend to SR-85

Gila Bend, ArizonaSep 16, 20160 Comments

Speed through Gila Bend is 35MPH. Exiting the city the speed limit Drops to 30 MPH. No businesses or homes along the highway. SR-85 is entered after coming to a complete stop. The 30MPH speed continues on SR-85 until just past the airport.
I was pulled over at 8:17 PM on Aug 27th. The officer told me I’d been driving between 40 & 45MPH. She spent 25 minutes in her vehicle before returning to my car with a computer generated, printed citation. As she handed it to me she told me she was sighting me for doing 50MPH in a 30. (What?!).
The ticket states: Speed Measurement Device “Other” – Equipment Number “Visual” – Violation “Speed/Reasonable & Prudent”
Since when can an automobile’s speed be determined visually? I challenge that during the day, but even more so on an unlit highway in the dark.
When I protested I was not driving that fast, the Officer’s reply was. “Yes you were. You can go to Traffic School”
