High Speed Traffic Tickets

ABC News recently had a story about law enforcement officers who were caught speeding. Some officers were arrested for speeds over 100 miles per hour.

I've blogged before about the seriousness of high speed traffic citations. Last year, Kyle Busch was cited for traveling 128 mph in 45 mph. Some felt he should be held to a higher standard of conduct because of his place in the race car industry.

 Are you more offended when a law enforcement officer breaks the law? What is worse-  Kyle Busch or a police officer? Should the person's occupation have no bearing in the issue? It brings up the question whether law enforcement officers should be held to a higher standard of conduct than the average citizen.  Should the punishment be more severe if an officer of the law were found guilty for this offense?




Regardless of your job, any speeds cited for over 90 mph are very serious offenses. It's not just a speeding ticket. You can be sentenced to jail for such high speeds. Consult an attorney before you go to court.
