Rt 522 North of Berkeley Springs

Beware of getting a speeding ticket in Berkeley Springs, even if you are not speeding. I was ticketed going Northbound while doing the posted 25 mph on the North side of Berkeley Springs near the old train station, just prior to the speed limit sign where it converts to 40 mph. I was supposedly clocked doing 42 mph, but the officer "cut me a break" and ticketed me for 34. He clearly clocked the vehicle in front of me, since I was doing 25 mph and not exceeding the speed limit. When I appeared in traffic court, the attorney kept trying to get me to say I was speeding, which I refused to do. However, the judge ruled against me and I was ordered to pay the fine. It is quite a set-up they have to distract money even from those obeying the speed limit.
