    A really good attorney could potentially get you off or dramatically reduced, but that kind of lawyer is going to cost a ton more than the ticket, so only reason to do that would be if you were in danger of losing your license. These kind of speed traps are designed to make it as unattractive as possible to fight it, often the judge is just going to rubber stamp it, as these tickets are what are funding the justice system in that county.

    Quoted from gliebig:

    I always wondered, what would qualify as a good attorney for something so simple as a speeding ticket?

    A friend dealt with a situation like this and the attorney he used specialized in this kind of thing, got the cop so twisted up in what happened, various details and what he was saying that he ended up contradicting himself, and got the case dismissed.

    Quoted from marksf123:

    I still don't know why it is such a hard concept that the left lane is made for passing. If you are in the left lane and someone is going faster than you that is behind you then you move over. Some people feel that it is there right to stay in that lane if they are going the speed limit which I will argue is more dangerous if the flow of traffic is faster.

    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.

    Quoted from plankalkul:

    Hell, I'm still paying Sin Tax for a stadium that's already built and paid off.. and has been for a decade.

    There are a couple of places where they are still paying for a stadium that has now been replaced by a newer one.
