Pinedale, WY–in town

Pinedale, WyomingJul 30, 20130 Comments

I had been driving all day with my family from Conifer, Colorado on US 191 with Jackson, WY as our destination, about a 550 mile drive. About 80 miles from our destination, we came up to Pinedale. I know about out-of-staters getting caught in speed traps, and we have NY plates, so when I came up to town, I saw the 25 mph sign and slowed down to the speed limit. After .2 miles (I later calculated distances using Google Maps), the limit went up to 30 mph. I drove the speed limit. We were driving through the town’s small developed area with shopping centers and other drivers were going quite a bit faster and passing me. A cop stopped me and told me I was doing 44 in a 20 mph zone. I had both my GPS and speedometer telling me differently. However, I was so zoned out from driving all day, that I didn’t argue. The ticket was $156.00.
