Kai, I'm truly sorry for your mother's collision, and your getting caught
speeding especially when this happens before the ink dried on the previous
incident. BUT... do I  detect an attitude? Your mother collided with a 
vehicle, and according to your story she had no assistance from anyone else. Now
you sound like you are bitter at being singled out for doing 67.5 mph in a 40 
zone?  According to my calculator, you were doing 168.75 % of the legal speed
limit, dude. That's equivalent to doing 109.7 mph on the Interstate (65 mph
zone). You're lucky they didn't give you free room and board for a few nights.
You are lucky he didn't cite you for reckless driving, and yank your ticket for 
months. Make no mistake, cops are not my favorite segment of the population, but
they are not causing the Radicke family's problems. YOU've got to slow down, and
mom's got to drive more carefully. Unfortunate as it may be, 'tain't the cop's
fault, friend. Lose the attitude before you go to court, Kai, magistrates have
big fists. I hope your luck improves starting now.
