Speed trap for people that aren't even speeding!

Stopped by a Subway in your town last week, and before pulling back out onto the highway I had to wait on a car to go by that was obviously speeding. I then pull out onto the road and hardly put foot on thgas and look behind me to see blue lights pulling me over. "Officer" wrote a ticket and said it was only for $81 and the points on insurance were not much. Some research this weekend tells me that Cottageville is well-known as a speed trap town. Well, it appears that it still uses this technique to raise money. I will never spend another penny in this town! And, will tell everybody that I can....!

Sorry you were not informed about our speed trap city..yes its a laugh. I do live outside of the city and can take other routes to avoid driving theu there...
Its really a sad thing that they wont build this little city and cut out the "stalking" as i call it in my book.
Now IF someone is speeding or breaking another law,,yea get his behind..
I say go fight the ticket, if u can, but like most people you were just passing thru and will be easier to just pay the ticket,,yea I know it SUCKS..On behalf of the nice folks here, I am sorry,, next time take hwy 61 !!!

I was visiting friends in a nearby town, and they warned me to go only 20 mph thru Cottageville and we did. It drops from 55 to 45 to 35, so i went a bit over 20, I avoided a ticket. The cop was hiding around a bend, and I really dropped my speed so luckily no one was behind me, else they wouldve been annoyed with me
