Hey hey you guys? Let’s take a step back here. I know what I did was wrong and I admitted as such in the original post. I don’t want to drag this out – I’d like to think of myself as generally a safe driver and I haven’t had a ticket in 15 years (not counting parking). I’m certainly not cannonballing down 16th St., I just tend to go the speed of traffic. Again, not excusable. My only point was that it only took 1 ticket to teach me a lesson (because for me, one $125 ticket is a serious issue), and since then I’ve just been coming home to getting smacked in the face. I’m obviously going to be paying, but I was just wondering if this had happened to people before and if they’d been able to get an leniency from the court. Apparently no one has, so I’ll most likely be sucking it up and trying to figure out where I’m going to get $625 from. So be it. Thanks for the input though.
On a somewhat related note, I think what kenyondweller said in regards to posted speed limits was spot on. Regardless of the outcome of this, 30mph is extremely slow for 16th in that area and now with the camera there’s a lot dangerous hard breaking going on.
