I just got a ticket 3 weeks ago for 82 in a 70 zone at 5am with very light traffic near Emporia, VA. I was very polite to the officer explaining I had my cruise set on 78{true), but somehow increased my speed for less than 1/2 mile to by pass some traffic, rather than
squeak by them at only 1 mph faster. He took my FL license to check me out and returned in 5 minutes with the reckless driving citation and said I have until Jan 24, 2018 to pay it. He said call the number {434-348-4226) to find out the cost. I have a clean record here in FL, so I was expecting some kind of warning after he found that out...but no. He was not as friendly as I was{am}...maybe it was a bad day for him. The fine is $216.00. Since being home, I have received letters from 10+ lawyers offering to defend me to get the charges reduced to just speeding or defective equipment (like an inaccurate cruise control?). The prices range from $99 to $250, with no guarantees, and the fine remains the same price. I have to spend $10 to get my 7yr. driving history for them, also. This combination of tickets to out-of-state drivers with extremely high fines coupled with a slew of offers from tons of lawyers just sounds like a money making scam to me.
