Response to marble falls (Reply #26)

Mon May 7, 2018, 11:04 AM

27. It was around '87 and the town was (still is) Wells, Vermont.

I had a date in a nearby town and I was going around the bend on Rt. 30 about 7 miles above the speed limit.

Red light behind me.

Cop explains how the area is sensitive to speeding violations because someone was killed about a month ago and two more people died in an accident going to the wake.

In Vermont, the cop reads your rights to a trial, and what happens if you don't pay the $50. ticket. And I'm saying to myself, just give me the ....'ing ticket so I can go on my way.

So I kick the tires and put a check in the mail and forgot about it.

Two years later, I get a $50.00 refund in the mail from the State of Vermont.

Seems this guy went out and bought his own radar gun and never had it calibrated and never got authorization to use it.
