Interstate 10 in La Paz County

Be careful driving through La Paz County AZ on I10 if you have an expensive looking vehicle! You will be targeted even if you are just going with the flow! Its all about money and their perception of your ability to pay fines. I have been driving this stretch every other week in my pickup for 12 years and never had a ticket. Now that I recently married and have a family I am driving one of my expensive SUVs the past 6 months and I have been stopped twice and ticketed for 5 to 10 mph over my actual speed. You will get no justice in court either, the judge is corrupt and will favor the officer every time. I hired an attorney to fight one of mine and even though we demonstrated that the officer provide inaccurate and contradictory testimony that did not prove my guilt the judge still found me guilty. It does no good to argue, the officers are rude and unprofessional and just want to show you who is boss and collect fines. One threatened to take me to jail, scaring my wife and stepdaughter into thinking they would be stranded out in Jerkwater AZ with my 5 week old son. The county is broke due to a lost lawsuit and they are using traffic fines to raise money. incidentally, the fines here are double what they are anywhere else in the state!
