Back when I was 18 (way back ) I was pulled over in Ohio for doing 58 in a 55 and recieved a 20 minute lecture on the fact that in Ohio the speed limit is EXACTLY 55 and not a mile an hour over. The only reason I didn't get a ticket was because we were from Canada and we would have had to go the local courthouse to pay the fine on the spot. We were glad to get out of that state. Try to do exactly 55 up and down hills with a 21 foot house trailer behind you. LOL

In Iowa if you are picked up in another state, i beleive you also pay Iowa Court fines because the state you are picked up in comes and wants something from Iowa. So SOL.

When either states or both of them get through with you, there's another factor:

They, the insurance company you have, will either raise your rates significantly or drop you... both of which would happen the next time your policy comes due.

This will also affect things when/if you try to change insurance companies. A ticket for going more than 15mph over the limit is usually a big red flag for them. Other factors may help you out, but this little stint you pulled certainly is going to hurt from the insurance angle somehow.

Ohio Troopers are the worst. Whenever I'm in Ohio, it is EXACTLY the speed limit (or a tad lower).

About being only 3mph over, there is a range of error for both your speedometer and the radar/laser detector. I'm not sure what it is but there is a range of error in EVERY thing. I wouldn't be surprised if both have a range of error of a few mph.

That is ture about insuance. Usually if you get pulled over for 10 or under, they overlook it. But 15 or over...they take notice...they dont want an accident prone person who might ask them for money one day.

In AL, if you are going 25+ mph over, it is an automatic mandatory court appearance. Since that speed is so much higher than the limit, I wouldn't be surprised if many states have a requirement such as that. However, since the cop didn't tell you (or you didn't tell us) you apparently don't have to do that.

Hell Gormo in Iowa when we were pulled over (no radar just cops at next town line and all we did was pass one new Caddy SUV on the higway coming from Chicago pretty fast) in the next town we hit...on our way to an aunt's house in Iowa. Of course we slowed right down seeing a town way ahead. Gave us a ticket for speeding?? The kicker was He asked who fast we were doing, I of course said about 8 over limit...and dumbass cousins following behind said about 20 over...lol So the two cops waiting for us gave tickets to both cars of the just asking question of how fast and asked if I could see a radar gun which they didn't even have. Of course they said pay it like a good boy or we wil put you in jail for the weekend (knowing I was traveling especially with others).

Iowa cops can be real dick heads. I am glad the only county I drive around in around here is Linn and Iowa. I know almost every member of the sheriff's dept here. (They are all scout leaders and I am a former Eagle scout) Also going out with a deputys daughter helps too. ;)

Hah, I think the only time I was in any of those states I drove through as fast as possible. It used to be that in California if you were going 20 over the limit that was reckless driving and they haul you in, but now I think if you are going less than 100 you just get a ticket, over 100 they take your car.

At least in TX, if you're more than 20MPH over the limit you can be arrested on the spot for reckless driving. You also can't use defensive driving to get out of it and have it errased from your record... :(

As far as I know, New York, Buffalo area has a leinancy of 5 MPH over. Just set the cruise, or get a lighter lead foot.
