Marine Avenue near Peck Street
Motorcycle cop sits behind shrubbery at Peck. Speed limit is 35. The ticket I received was way out of line. The cop told me I was doing at least 59, but he would only write me up for the minor violation of under 15 mph over the limit. By the way, this cop said that he had my reading from the top of the hill which is at least 1000 feet away! The limit on this street was 45 for years and years but was reduced after the street was improved. This particular officer had a line about motorcycle cops and "zero tolerance" so everyone gets a ticket… This procedure was very routine for this guy. He never asked for my registration or insurance, never looked at me and went on about how I could do Traffic School online and it would be as if I never received the ticket. What a joke! I happened to notice as I was traveling down the hill on this street that the Suburban ahead of me was someone I knew from work and they were travelling much faster than me. Funny, I got the ticket! I haven’t had a ticket since 1985 which I told the cop — he could have cared less. Four people that I work with at Northrop-Grumman received tickets here also. Beware!
