Yucky morning

Did you ever get a "traveling too fast" ticket? I just did. On my way to church this morning. A mile from our house, going downhill, when one naturally gathers a bit of speed, doesn't one?

What happened was, I was taking too long to get out the door and I told Ralph to go without me.
We had had a lovely, quiet morning too: I made pancakes, we both had a chance to do some blogging...and then reality struck. Never happened to me before.
I guess there is a first time for everything. :-(

The police officer told me all of the towns in the state are doing this during the month of April. Errgghh. He warned me to drive slowly. (something I do 98 percent of the time)

I have more to say, but I'll leave it at that.

"Traveling too fast" versus "Speeding"? What's the difference and how much is the ticket? I've never heard of such a thing before and I'd be pretty miffed myself to say the least.

Let me guess - the State needs more money??

OH MY! And on your way to church too. I think the officer...well...I think he should have understood!

Oh, I am sorry about the ticket! I admit, I received one a few years ago too. In a 25 MPH zone. My daughter received one two weeks later from the same officer at the same spot. I was happy I just had to pay the fine and not receive points that would have raised insurance rates.

My Hubs has had more than his share. :)
Out ticketing on a Sunday morning -that's desperate.
