Disappointed In Your Court System

Letter to the editor

I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED IN YOUR COURT SYSTEM . ON MARCH 25 , I WAS DRIVING THROUGH PAYSON FROM APACHE JUNCTION.

MY COUSIN HAD RECEIVED A SPEEDING TICKET IN PAYSON ON HIS WAY HOME TO MINN FROM AZ. AND WAS REALLY UPSET ABOUT IT.hE WOULD HAVE FOUGHT IT ,IF HE LIVED CLOSER.

SINCE HE HAD RECEIVED A TICKET, I WAS BEING EXTRA CAREFUL, SITTING MY CRUISE CONTROL AT EACH ZONE AND MY HUSBAND WAS WATCHING THE GPS (IT TURNS RED IF YOU SPEED)WHEN THE CAMERA FLASHED AND TOOK MY PICTURE, WE ASSUMED THAT WE HAD MISSED A 35 MPH SPEED SIGN BECAUSE MY CRUISE WAS SET AT 45 MPH. MY HUSBAND WAS MAILED A TICKET, BUT SINCE I WAS DRIVING AND I KNEW I WASN'T

SPEEDING, I DECIDED TO GO TO COURT AND FELT WITH THE TRUTH IT WOULD BE DISMISSED.

THE TICKET STATED I WAS GOING APPOX. 56MPH. I WOULD NOT HAVE GONE TO COURT IF I DIDN'T THINK THAT THE JUDGE WOULD LISTEN AND BE FAIR, BUT I HAD TO PAY THE FULL FINE.$210.00 OR APPEAL. I FIGURE IF I TOLD THE TRUTH AND LOST , I WOULD MOST LIKELY LOOSE AN APPEAL TOO. IAM PAYING THE TICKET BUT I WON'T BE DOING ANY BUSINESS IN PAYSON, I WILL AVOID DRIVING THERE IF POSSIBLE. I GUESS IT IS TRUE"YOU CAN'T FIGHT CITY HALL"

HAS ANY OF YOUR OTHER READERS HAD THIS PROBLEM WITH THE PHOTO CAMERA

I AM 70 YEARS OLD AND NEVER HAD A TRAFFIC VIOLATION. (I HAD PROOF OF THAT WITH ME , FROM THE DOT.

Mam, You need to learn the difference between Payson and Star Valley. Payson does not have any speed cameras.
