damn straight. the speed limit is the max you are supposed to go in perfect conditions, in worse conditions you go slower. the way speed limits are meant to be used are if every condition is perfect, you can at max go the speed limit. if speed limits were used properly, then most people would go under the speed limit most of the time.Originally posted by JLTD@Sep 2 2005, 12:20 PM
9 mph over the limit is speeding no matter how you look at it. The excuse of "I just moved to Utah and am unaware of the speed limit" is pretty lame. The court is not going to be concerned about your inconvenience when you broke the law.
Too many people today feel no accountability for their own actions. Your right, "The Man" has it out for you and your simply a victim being totally screwed over. Pay the fine or go to court. If there are no points either way you might as well pay because going to court will just end up paying additional costs.
If you don't want to get tickets, don't break the law. If you don't break the law, you don't have to worry about the officer's quotas.
