If it were 5 miles over or 10 that would be one thing but for 1? Speed trap pure and simple. The state should make the city post signs at city limit that the city has been designated a speed trap. And your speedometer being off 1 or 2 mph is probable. I have three vehicles and GPS says one of the three is off by 2mph.
You think your going the speed limit and then in 30 days you get a nice gift from the city in the mail and you get to pay them a $50 prize for playing a game you believed you were not playing. But of course you were speeding and breaking the law so common sense and doing the right thing be damned, the law is the law Barney.
Cops who wonder why the public does not give a damn about them anymore need only read these articles, those where cops shoot peoples dogs, etc etc.
They are perceived as the praetorian guard for the state and big govt, and nothing else.
