Re: Pace Clocking for Speeding?
This happened to me once, the only speeding ticket I've ever gotten (knock on wood). I was under the speed limit, in the slow lane of 71-S, at a safe distance behind two cars who were clearly not going slower than I was. The cop drove behind all three of us for a while, with me quite aware of his presence the whole time, and then pulled me over and said he had paced me. By the time the cop talked to me and checked my record, I swear he felt bad about the whole thing. But not too bad, because he gave me the ticket anyway.
I was so upset that I did fight it out of principle. Took a day off work and drove four hours (eight round trip) to where I had gotten the ticket, in Ohio; i was already living in Pennsylvania at the time. I ended up paying *more* than the ticket due to court costs or something, or else show up AGAIN for trial a month later, which was not an option. I also forgot to ask them not to put the points on my license, which the cop had agreed to. Total disaster. I've never gotten over the injustice of all that.
There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
