I once got stopped by a cop in New Hope, PA. I was doing 45 in a zone,
controlled by a 35 sign, well hidden in the bushes. The cop said: "I
gonna site you not for speeding but for disobeying to the sign. You
gonna get a fine but no points".

Now, is that a bland revenue collection or what?! He new that I would
fight the points and probably win, whereas @ $62 fine I'd just let it
go. He was right!

Now could anyone please tell me isn't "speeding" and "disobeying to the
posted spped limit" the same sh*t????
A legal mumbo-jumbo indeed!
