I95 McIntosh County Georgia
On my way to see my parents for Christmas, I was traveling North on I95 (near Darien, Ga) with my cruise control set to 79 mph when suddenly a truck swerved in behind me in the right lane. My family was startled by how close the truck had come to us before swerving in behind us. It was not until the truck had squeezed in behind me that he turned on his blue lights. I immediately pulled over on to the shoulder and stopped. A local deputy came up to my window and asked for my drivers license (not insurance or registration). He went back to his truck and quickly returned to my window with a ticket siting me as speeding 88 mph in a 70 speed limit. On the ticket he had also marked Traffic as Light and took the time to provide me with an unsolicited comment that his radar was calibrated earlier that day. I knew to just keep quiet because it "smelled" like a set up (as I knew my speed and how heavy the traffic was) and I did not want to give the deputy any excuses to further ruin our Christmas vacation. This was such an obvious trap that my children immediately commented on the excitement of the deputy to hand me a ticket and on the inaccuracy of his accusations. Drivers beware!!!
