    So describe this ordeal a little better - were you on the expressway? 2 lane blacktop? Where exactly were you that you couldn't get around someone for 15 miles, whether they sped up or not? Were they in a Lamborghini? Because there ain't a car on the road I can't get around if I really want to - that's why God made shoulders......

    How did you only get a speeding ticket, and not reckless driving, public endangerment and a slew of other things? Did the other driver get a ticket? And I agree, you're lucky you didn't get arrested.

    Quoted from rosh:

    Everyone once in a while you hear a story of someone being pulled over for holding up traffic by staying in the left lane. Some folks are just totally oblivious when driving and I guess some just like being jerks and think they should dictate the speed everyone drives. Nothing more annoying that being backed up and you can see nothing but open road in the left lane ahead of some moron who insists on driving the same speed as those in the right lane.

    That's called "Impeding Traffic" - those a$$holes that hold up traffic when the light is green so people can pull out of the gas station into traffic can get cited for it too.

    Quoted from Bwilson:

    I've got a buddy who is an attorney and he gave me some pretty good advice once.
    He basically told me to show up to court and ask if the cop who busted me was actually licensed and approved to use the mechanism in which he caught me. I think he was using a laser gun or something like that. Or it might have been old school with a scope, I honestly don't remember.
    Anyhow, long story short the guy wasn't approved to use it so they threw the ticket out.
    In your case it sounds like they're some hardcore mofos in GA. I'm willing to bet those cops are approved for catching speeders any means necessary.
    Good Luck!

    The radar/laser gun is required to be calibrated before every shift, with documentation to support it. Also, the officer must possess an FCC license to operate the equipment.

    When I was in my 20s, I had 22 points on my license and still HAD a license, probably because none were alcohol related. Speeding, blowing stop signs/lights etc. I was working for Chrysler at the time, and the insurance was more per month than my car payment.

    Haven't had a moving violation in prob 15 years though.
