Just got a ticket for 24 in a 15 in front of the elementary school across from VWCC. Cops on feet hiding behind telephone poles and trees. Once they clock you they jump out in the road to stop you.

In my defense, it was at the bottom of a hill that they got me. And, I was going 24. At the bottom of a hill. Granted, I guess I should have ridden my brakes down the hill and tried to stay under 15. But, I mean, come on, it was 24. Yes, I was breaking the speed limit, but was it dangerous? Of course not. You know if it was you you'd be as pissed about it as I am.

Find me someone who actually goes 15 in a 15 mph zone. Seriously.

All the do gooders in here... Let me see your driving records, guys. Corey: Did that tree jump out in front of you on a race track?

They probably want to get hit by the "speeding vehicle" so they can attempt to charge the driver with attempted murder or assault on a police officer.

I try not to go over the speed limit in school zones as it is because I've learned the hard way when I was younger. As ridiculous as a 15mph speed limit is, I know that enforcement is much stronger in a school zone than elsewhere. Rivers Edge, for example, is REALLY difficult to drive 15mph down. I understand there's a lot of foot traffic, bicyclers, etc, but I really don't think the reaction time is that significant between 15mph to 25mph. At the very least the speed limit should change like a school zone changes during school hours over there.

Anyway, I know Chad personally. He's not a teenage ricer racing through the streets of Roanoke trying to terrorize innocent citizens with his angled titanium exhaust canister. He's old as fuck. He's innocent! I'll go to court with you Chad. You're too fucking old to be ticketed.

Chad: Really though.. bigger tires without the proper speedometer gear means your speedometer wasn't registering your true speed. Sounds like an equipment malfunction to me. You're welcome.
