Woman gets ticket for driving 2 mph under speed limit

A Maryland woman has gotten a very unusual speeding ticket for driving a mere two miles under the speed limit on Interstate 95.

Local NBC affiliate News4 reports that the woman, who asked to keep her name anonymous, was driving 63 miles per hour in a 65-mph zone. Police say the reason they ticketed her was that she was driving in the left lane reserved for speedier commuters.

"[I was] really shocked," she told the station. "I thought, 'Oh my God, you've got to be kidding me.'"

Of course, commuters who get annoyed by someone hogging the right lane might salute the move.

However, the woman noted the area was experiencing heavy winds at the time and she was only driving under the speed limit as a safety precaution. She also claimed to have never been ticketed before.

"Sometimes when it's dangerous, you have to do what you can to stay safe," she said.

She has one ally on her side: the local branch of AAA.

"The reason [the ticket] is silly is because it's sending the wrong message," said John Townsend of AAA Mid-Atlantic. "And that is, 'We will tolerate you driving at more than the speed limit, but it you drive below the speed limit, then you're penalized for that.'"

People get so irritated following the left lane squatters that they do stupid things to get around them. They are creating a hazard.

Most of the roads around here are 2 lane. I would like to see more cops ticket the idiots that won't follow the law requiring them to pull over if they get more than five cars behind them. I don't know how many times I get behind some moron with twenty cars piled up behind them because they are driving 10 under the limit. :#

The single most annoying thing to me in traffic are people that speed up when you pass them and slow back down once you can't get around them again. Or they will pass you back and then slow back down so you go down the road playing leapfrog.

it seems like it doesn't matter whether you get over into the right lane to pass a moron sitting in the left....OR you come up on someone and the actually get over into the right lane for you to pass.....either way....when you go to pass them they speed up. never fails.

also another favorite dumbass driver of mine....your in a line of cars in the fast lane and someone comes right up on your ass and shoots over into the left lane almost grazing your bumper and zooms right up on the ass of the car in the left lane that you're getting ready to pass. it's like....where the fuck do you think you're gonna go! stupid bitches. you pass them and they jump back in behind you only to do the same thing after you pass the car in the left lane. and the whole cycle is perpetuated by the dude at the front of the line of care you're following because he won't get over and let you all go! it's a vicious cycle.

see this leads to another of my most hated traffic dumbasseries....
you do make the stipulation "long after"...and I agree....however...

I know EVERYBODY has experienced this. you're second in line at a light to turn left. there is NO LEFT TURN ARROW. the light turns green and the idiot in front of you doesn't move an inch. oncoming traffic prevents him from making the left hand turn....so he sits there and doen's move an inch thru the entire cycle. the light turns red again and there you are....second in line again.

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!

stupid stupid stupid!

get your ass out into the intersection and the worst case scenario is you get to turn left when the light turns yellos and oncoming traffic stops blocking your turn. worst case scenario SHOULD BE that only one car gets to make the left turn per cycle....but if a fucking moron is in front of you...it's even worse than that.

:spock:

Uh, wanting to drive the speed limit in the fast lane isn't illegal or outrageous. I watch oblivious/disengaged drivers cause so many dangerous situations, far worse than driving a reasonable amount above the speed limit while paying attention... clusters of cars playing leap frog while all driving within 1mph of each other... cars that actually slow down to pass semis. Freakin' morons, can't even get out of the way of each other, much less those who know how to drive efficiently.

During a long road trip with my wife a while back, we discussed the idea of a rep system for driving. Someone's nice and lets you merge in? Rep. Someone cuts you off like an idiot? Neg rep. People below a certain number of points get a ticket.

It'd never work, but the concept is intriguing.

During a long road trip with my wife a while back, we discussed the idea of a rep system for driving. Someone's nice and lets you merge in? Rep. Someone cuts you off like an idiot? Neg rep. People below a certain number of points get a ticket.

It'd never work, but the concept is intriguing.

Id be reddin' the shit out of people.

there's a whole Seinfeld episode about this.....

but it annoys the piss outta me when I do the right thing and slow down and let you in, and you can't exert and ounce of energy or spend one second of your precious time to give me a thank you wave!

I KNEW I should cut your ass off! :cuss:

She should go to court and fight the ticket. It will be thrown out and the cop will look like a moron.

maybe. but she WAS breaking the law. so it's quite possible it won't do her any good.

it IS the law. get over.

some people really really do act like they own the road.

I doubt it. The headline makes it sound like she got a ticket for her speed, but in most states, the law she violated was using the left lane as a driving lane rather than a passing lane. Assuming that's the case here, the ticket is fine - the reporting is the shoddy part.

They are also a hazard as they are impeding traffic.

Some states have the impeding traffic laws. I thought Missouri did, Heard that Arkansas does. NOT SURE.

Minnesota does not-sometimes it should. People deliberately drive in the left lane and don't get over.

It is a borderline ticket.

Wait...are you implying that the media might twist the facts a bit in order to sensationalize something?

Yeah it depends on the situation but this will help her cause:

"However, the woman noted the area was experiencing heavy winds at the time and she was only driving under the speed limit as a safety precaution. "

Hard to say without knowing all the details, but I doubt that a judge would let a ticket for going two miles under the speed limit stand.

I always drive 5 miles under the speed limit and usually do so in the left lane. In fact thats the best way to win the road game which is to see how many truckers you can trap behind you. My record is 18 on HWY 287 North of Amarillo. I got a 14 once going into OKC.

That doesn't explain why she was doing it in the left lane. That's the real issue once you look past the media spin job here.

all the more reason she should have been in the slower lane. Who cares if their are high winds, that is, why does this change the fact that she was not in the correct lane? If she wants to go slower due to conditions, great, just do it in the right lane.

States should be all about keep right laws. It's more revenue for them. Tickets for people going slow in the left lane, tickets for people speeding. Win/Win.

That's funny, I grew up close to Unity and thought "what if everyone drove like this" Then I moved to Florida.

I lived in Blue Springs and then moved down here. What town you in?

I got the same ticket from MO Highway Patrol on Business 71 going from KC to Maryville on my way back to school back around 2005, except I was going 8 mph over. This was at 11 pm, completely dark except for my headlights and with no other car in sight.

Judge tossed the ticket and I only had to pay around $20 in court fees.

If only they would do this in Texas.


Spot on. Just got back from vacation, southern TX. Damn, you all suck. Never seen so many left hand lane drivers. 3 different states = TX the worst.

I jumped into the right lane and passed 8 "instances" (more than 8 CARS) of left lane driving on the way to work today. (yes I really did count - I thought it would be more)

I've taken to giving them a thumbs up as I go by. seems to insult most drivers much more than the ole middle finger.

I also deliver the sarcastic thumbs up rather than the middle finger.
