A Toy for Cops With a Grudge
I’m not so sure about this. This essentially makes it impossible to contest whether you were driving over the speed limit.
Drivers along Interstate 4 may notice changing speed limits soon.
Many years ago, I was given a ticket for doing 35 in a school zone that was posted at 20 MPH. The normal speed limit in that area is 35. I could just about swear that the flashing yellow light was not blinking. Indeed, the time of the ticket was right about at the end of the school zone period. I also know the cop was sitting in a location that wouldn’t allow him to see the light himself. My theory is that the cop’s watch was a little slow.
So, how long before I get a ticket because I was driving 55 like the sign indicated, but a cop nails me for speeding in a 45 MPH zone? Fluctuating speed limit signs are a bad idea.
