    labor day speed traps!

    So i was coming back from Ocean City tonight, keeping up with traffic, doing my best to stay in the pack because i know that the cops are back. And on route 50 i get singled out among everybody and pulled over. Cop gave me a ticket for doing 76 in a 65. I guess i should have stayed at 65 even though every minivan around me was going just as fast if not faster than i was.

    Have any of you maryland guys gotten a ticket from a state trooper outside of your area? If i go to court for this one am i going to have to go back down to salisbury or can i go here in Glen Burnie.

    Memorial Day and Labor Day are probably the favorite times for the revenue collectors to go to work. I saw three collections taking place today.

    I think Bike cops are the worst. I think they like to just get on it when they see someone go just over.

    Oh, yeah! I've been drinking Jack and Pepsi all night and watching NASCAR! Woohoo! You gotta take holidays into consideration when you are breaking the law! If you are driving? Take it easy.

    The ticket will go to the court of the area, not the court of where you live. They arent going to make the Trooper drive up to your area on states time and burn state gas. Good luck.

    +1. you are going to have to go back to salibury. have fun with that, too. locals don't like us (tourist beach traffic) so they are going to try to stick it to you.

    yea im wondering if it will be even worth it to drive back to fight it. The ticket is 80 bucks right now, i dunno if it involves any points, i asked the cop and he said that i had to contact the MVA. the 80 bucks isnt that bad, i just dont want my insurance to go up

    it is worth fighting the ticket. 9 times out of 10, you will get a reduced fine and less points for showing up. of course, this is if you have a clean record. according to the md law library, you are looking at 2 points.
