Mauston, Wisconsin Speed Traps
As a fairly young driver, I was set on cruise control to be going 60-62 during a very dead time of day. An officer passed me going the opposite direction and whipped around to follow me. And he followed me for a few miles to make me nervous. I didn’t really slow down much because I wan’t speeding all that much. After a while, he popped his lights on and pulled me over. After claiming that I was going 74, I was shocked. I knew my spedometer was off, but wrong direction! When he asked why I was going that fast, I told him the truth. I was using cruise control, and I know my spedometer is off, but it’s not off in that direction. He rudely asked what year my car was and basically told me that I’m a liar and my lies won’t work. I’ve never had a ticket, or even written warning before, and he gave me a doozy. On the ticket, there is a clerical error. The year of my car is wrong. So far off, that my car wasn’t yet made in that year by dodge! I know that since I’m still under 20, cops thrive on pulling me over. Plus, I had a car load of kids which I was babysitting, they were all around 15 years old. I guess I’m not so much mad about being pulled over, it’s just that the cops were very rude and never offered the radar gun to me for veiwing.
