I got a ticked for driving 39 miles per hour on a Arterial road 30 miles per hour speed limit. It is funny because it says 30 in one side of the road but if you are coming the opposite way there is a sign that shows 35 miles per hour. I am just wondering what it exactly in Arterial Road? Why the sign in the other side says 35 miles per hour? Thanks!
Arterial roads are generally for through traffic with higher traffic volume. The issue of the what the speed limit was on the roadway in the other direction is irrelevant. In your city, the speed limit on residential streets is 25 mph and 30 mph on arterial streets, unless otherwise posted. You should contact a local traffic citation lawyer to see if you can fight the ticket.
Of course, if you're going 39 MPH iT doesn't really matter whether the speed limit is 30 or 35.MPH. It sounds like that's the area where it decreases to 30 going one direction and increases to 35 going the other direction? You may be able to fight the ticket on many other issues.
Arterials are major roads, high traffic roads. The fact that the speed limit is 35 mph going the other way is irrelevant, as you were not going that way. Theres likely a good reason for the difference, like you may be allowed to drive faster when leaving a heavily congested area vs. entering one. You were speeding either way so you need to come up with a better defense.
