Since last October, I have spent many hours behind the wheel, driving several thousand miles, burning up the Interstates between DE and NC and between DE and Baltimore, with several round trips to both locations. I accomplished this without a hitch - smooth sailing and no issues - except the traffic jams that were encountered at times. So I move back to DE on January 24th, and less than 3 weeks after my return, I get nailed by a gung-ho, hick, not-so-friendly "law enforcement official", for speeding in a one-horse town about 10 miles from my house...so one-horse that it doesn't even have a traffic light!!! Yup - he claims he clocked me doing 37 in a 25, which I KNOW is wrong, since I glanced at my speedometer as I was approaching the 35MPH sign outside of town, and I was doing UNDER 35 at that point. It's his word against mine if I take it to court, so I might as well not even waste my time contesting. Anyway - he was real generous - NOT!!! - and lowered the ticked to 9 over - or 34MPH - which lowered my fine to "only" $100 - wasn't that just so sweet of him??? Am I being sarcastic??? - you bet! I tried talking him into just giving me a warning, since it has been 15 years since I have had any traffic violations - not so much as a parking ticket. You'd think that would count for something, wouldn't you??? And the ticket I got 15 years ago was the same scenario as the one I just got - only it was in a different one-horse town about 5 miles from the house. So I'm $100 lighter in the wallet when I can hardly afford to be, seeing that I still need to make that one more trip to NC to pick up the rest of my belongings. Maybe between me not feeling up to the drive and not having a little extra $$$ in March, what's still in storage will have to stay there till May, when I'll probably be able to drive that distance again. I can make do till then if I have to. I'm still p.o.'ed about that ticket tho, and the cocky attitude of "Mr Policeman" - young, trying to make his ticket quota, kid!!!
