I actually got a speeding ticket on the way to my first basenji national. It was years and years ago when it was a 2 day event in Pecatonica (just west of Rocford IL). I had a new car and in the end it turned out that the spedometer was off - but anyway I was driving along - in a pack of cars - I knew that the police were behind me and in front of me was a truck pulling a utility trailer and junk was falling out everywhere - I thougth 'hey I'll move over to the right lane and let the cops get that guy." Ha - we were in Wisconsin and that truck was from Wisconsin - I however was from MN. Now the rule if you are out of state is you have to pay the fine on the spot.
I had very little cash - no credit card and they don't take checks. I did however have my son (I think he was 12 or so) another person (young lady about 18) and 4 dogs in a stations wagon - the cop decided a check was just fine- I don't think he could imagine what he would do with 2 teens and 4 dogs in the police station.
Since my speedometer was really off - I could have gotten something from my local law enforcement to that affect and fight the ticket BUT I would have had to take the day off work and drive over there so it would cost me more money than the ticket.
I will say however that whenever I drive through Lyndon Station in WI - on hway 94 - I make sure I'm in the right lane and driving the speed limit.
