Was taking Kristen to work this morning and I took the long way because we had a lot of snow and figured the highway would be the clearest roads. Got to a point where the speed limit changes from 55 to 65 and I accelerated and when I looked it was at 67 or 68 and I saw a car up ahead on the side of the road and to be cautious I let it back down to 65. It was a cop from the sheriff's office and he pulled behind me. I wasn't even sure what he was doing for awhile because he had his lights on but for a long time was just going very slow way back behind me. I pulled over (despite someone in the right lane in a van who just kept trucking a long) and he pulled in behind me. He gave me a ticket for doing 70 in a 55. This kind of pisses me off since it was at a point where the speed limit went up to 65 and I don't think I ever got as high as 70. The cost of the ticket is $108 which I guess isn't too bad, but I'm more worried about it impacting my insurance. I'm also contemplating going to court and hoping the guy won't show or that the judge will understand that I just accelerated for the speed change. I don't really want to do the lawyer thing since they cost too much. Any suggestions? To make things worse, I went home via the route I normally take and it was perfectly clear. At least he didn't give me another ticket for no front license plate or tinted windows.
