    I didn't know cops detained you for 12 hours for driving over the speed limit. I thought they just issued a citation and let you go.
    It should be a criminal offense.

    First off, you'd have to standardize the speed at which tickets will be given. I know you're going to say the speed limit is already there, but allow me to tell you one time when I was in court to fight a fine issued by an overzealous state trooper for where I was parked getting a nap so that I could be safe, the judge was schooling the troopers on how he didn't want anymore tickets for speed under 10mph over the limit to be clogging his courtroom...(I won my ticket as well)

    If the cop can tell you not to drive the speed limit in poor weather, citing it is only a suggestion, than that should hold true in the inverse as well.

    Do they have more harsh and appropriate punishments for violations of speeding laws committed by motorists there?

    Another example of abuse of raw power.

    Jay walking is a non-jailable ticket only offense. The only time a person is arrested is IF the person fails to appear for court, doesn't pay the ticket, or is found guilty and then doesn't pay.

    Arresting her was a complete abuse of power accordingly unless she refused to sign the ticket. It is no different than would be talking someone to jail for if their car is illegally parked or taking someone to jail for having a tail-light out.

    My step son was pulled over a few weeks ago by a local cop for driving 3 miles an hour over the speed limit in a small town in west Texas. He was driving 38 in a 35 mph zone. My wife was with him and explained they were in a hurry to get to the birth of her first grandchild. He just said "be careful" and let them go.

    So Tigger, should they have slapped the cuffs on and taken him to the pokey?

    Are you mocking the famed discount philosopher, Specklebang?

    I suspect you are just diverting us from you real intentions of joining the Mexican Drug Cartel forces.

    Giving lip to the cops is a really bad move. They don't have to convict you, they can punish you plenty by just arresting you. They really abuse that power but they have guns and flashing lights and much more power than you do.

    Hopefully she sues the **** out of that city and wins. She has the right to exercise her freedom of speech to warn others. If she wants to warn others of a speed trap,DUI check point or what ever then that is her right and her business.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    So you want everyone in jail. I mean if you are going to go all hardline on us and everything then one mile an hour over the speed limit is criminal. The speed LIMIT is the speed limit. No leeway. Is that where you are going with this? The law is the law and it should all be criminal? lol

    There aren't enough jails in the world for your world view.

    All we need to do is apply the death penalty for any infraction. This will reduce our population to a much more manageable level and the survivors will be the really, really well behaved. No more unemployment, no more crime, parking spaces where you need them and a sense of peace and a job well done.
