Been driving over 50 years with never any violations. Coming from NC where speed was 70 then Virginia down to 60.
If you are talking Greenville County, it has ben called a certified sped trap by AAA. Sussex and Surry are getting the same rep, although not as bad.

Is it worth it to you to avoid demerit points on your DMV record? Good luck.See question

I have done 35 out of 50 community service hours and need just a little bit more time because I have been busy with work and school recently. How can I get an extension?
yOUR PRIORITIES STINK;
Your priorities stink; work, school and whatever cannot put you in jail or convict you for not taking your community service seriously. You better be prepared to show the court you deserve more time to complete your community service and this time get it done. Contact your attorney to petition for more time to complete the community service. Good luck and get it done.See question
My husband is on fedaral probation an failed 3 drug screenings for pot. What could be the out come of his court date
Your husband should be in contact with his attorney NOW. Has any urine screen been clean? I had a client years ago that was such a heavy pot smoker, was still coming up dirty a year later. I ended up sending him to a private lab to get a quantitative test to show his BAC level was actually dropping although showing as positive. The argument was successful. Good luck.See question
