Re: Upset with OV Police
Joe, I’m not sure what to make of your attempt to garner sympathy by publicly indicting yourself for the commission of the same traffic violation three times in less than one year’s time. What does this say about your character? You don’t deny guilt, so you must either have no regard for the traffic laws of OV and/or don’t learn from your mistakes. Either way, you will continue to be cited until you figure it out. Many of us living in OV are military veterans and have worked 30+ years also, but I doubt most of us expect a “pass” when we break the law on a continuing basis. The OVPD has already given you and all drivers a 10 mph “cushion” when it comes to speeding violations. In your case that’s a 33 percent allowance over the posted limit.
So if you were cited for 41 mph or 11 mph over the posted limit, you were most likely going faster still. Oh, that’s right, you were wearing your seatbelt – guess you figure that should get you another 5 or so mph more leeway. Just how much do you want to exceed the speed limit and not be cited Joe? Maybe the OVPD can customize traffic laws just for you. Hard to believe a former Marine is whining / sniveling about being caught for willfully breaking the rules. Got a sure fire way to avoid being cited again in the future Joe, act / drive like an adult and obey the traffic laws. Semper Fi!
