Florida's Department of Transportation Secretary Ananth Prasad was ticketed on a Tallahassee for doing 44 in a 35.

I hate being ticketed on a Tallahassee.

meyerkev: 85th percentile unless overriding factors is the guideline.

/CA.  A fast main road is 35, a slow is 25.
//And then everyone ignores it and goes 45 anyways.
///My gas mileage dropped 25% going from MI (45 MPH main drags) to CA.

I once was told speed limits are merely suggestions for bad drivers, seeing as he was an above average driver he felt no need to adhere to those limits. I wish the law worked like that......

DOT guy uses his position as head of DOT to change the speed limit on a road he probably goes down everyday. The city is mad because they dont get to collect revenues for tickets on a road with an artificially low speed limit.

I'm not really sure who to root for in this douchebag fight

Before you people start complaining, at least find the right target. It's possible the DOT legitimately found and corrected a situation created by a local municipality trying to raise money via speeding tickets.

It's also possible that the head of the DOT was abusing his power.

It's also possible that Jesus lived and died for my only sin, which is posting too much on Fark from work.

The guy got caught, paid his fine, and was humble about it. Then after hearing from other citizens about that stretch of road, he commissioned a fact-based study that reported that the speed limit was artificially low, so they recommended it be raised. I don't see where the Florida tag comes into play. That's kind of an ideal way for the system to work.
