We have little towns like that on the way to the eastern shore... You'll be going 50mph and all of a sudden it drops to 25mph. But it makes sense b/c you're going through all these little prissy, historic towns and some DO have schools.
Your situation doesn't sound at all like that which sucks a whole bunch. Can you challenge the points?

Slow down. You were speeding. If you feel that areas speedlimit is unjust then you should take it up with that town but in the meantime abide by the limits or avoid the area.

I have never seen a 10mph zone except in a parking lot. So it may be worth a trip to town hall. Slowing down saves lives and gas too :). I just got 38mpg last tank by slowing down a bit.

thats why you drive a truck and live out in the country..
see a cop.
up kick in 4x4 and go through a field
woot woot

but slow down
theres reasons for why the road goes that slow
maybe because its a school zone or a winding road.
speed limits are there for your safety
if you want to drive fast
id recommend a large parking lot or go to the country

You must not be very familiar with it to get popped doing 15 over. I feel your pain on the traps though, I got caught doing 19 over (unfamiliar area) in a work truck last year. Try explaining that to the boss.

we have 45 to 20mph in a school zone :p in pasadena but the 20mph speed sign is behind a big tree so you wouldnt notice it till you actually passed the tree then youre actually speeding by 15mph :p before you get the chance to hit the brakes hihi...

i got pulled over one time doing 110 (i was being stupid and wanted to try out the throttle controller :p) i was speeding, didn't signal my lane changes, made an illegal lane change into a carpool lane, and had a busted tail light. well i shit my pants when i saw those lights, but wen i was in the carpool i was doing about 75. well he gave me a break on everything, including the speed!!!! he gave me a ticket for the light being broken though :p. i know i was being stupid...

That is so lucky! :woot:
I have yet (knock on wood) gotten a speeding ticket. I was young and stupid and was pulled over for an expired registration 10 years ago, but nothing since then.

I have never been pulled over for speeding or anything else. I pass the same cop in the same spot every day when going to work. One day a man flew by me and the cop pulled up behind me (in the left lane) ... My goodness my heart raced so fast I thought he was after me (even though I was doing 50 on the dot - which is the limit) ... But he only wanted me to move over and he pulled over the little old man in his Aveo 5 ... haha ;)

I've had that happen before. Even though I know that I'm not doing anything wrong, I still freak out when I see those flashing lights.

Lol ... Yes it freaks me out.
Now the cop knows me and waves when I see him ... I usually put cruise on (since it's a long stretch between lights) so I'm doing exactly the speed limit :D haha!

the only time i've ever gotten a ticket for speeding was when i had my saab...but it had turbo and i was always speeding with that. but i was going 80 in a 55...oopsy...so whats the cop do? gets behind me had me clocked at 80 continues to follow me into the 45 where at this time i'm no longer going 80 because i'm already screwed...so he pulls me over in the 45 so he can say i was going 80 in the 45. i was sooo mad. 2 points and paid about $400....haven't been pulled over since! lol
