A police lady ticketed me for going 60 in a 45 mph zone. The speed trap is only a few blocks long. You can see the 60 mph sign. It is hard to stop or slow down in such a short distance.
I went to the Waverly, VA courthouse. For a town of 750 people, the courthouse was absolutely huge (as large as a school for 2000 students). The clerk had stacks of tickets and expected you to be rude to him for staging the obvious speed trap. I was not rude and found an attorney coming out of the courthouse to represent me. The attorney did not reduce the fee but eliminated the reckless driving charge. I begged the attorney to include the price of the ticket in the $250 attorney fee. He refused and said just fax your credit card information to the courthouse when you get your ticket in the mail.
Waverly Courthouse pretended not to get my fax and suspended my driver’s license for not paying and charged me an addition $125. I called my attorney and told him this was an unbelievable racket with him included. The attorney laughed said maybe you should travel through another state. This ticket mishap cost over $700.
