Ok, someone please answer this for me. I swear this is not a joke-I received a traffic ticket. The officer made it a failure to obey speed enforcement device so that it would not be reported to penn dot and there would be no points off my license. I forgot about the ticket and when I was nearing the ten day deadline I hurried and scribbled a check to the magistrate for 109.00 and sent it immediately. A week later, I received a "pending bench warrant" for ....get this.....50 cents.(fine was 109.50) Ok, the stamp, paper and envelope it took to orchestrate this cost more than .50 cents! Is there a minimum amount that has to be owed before a bench warrant can be issued? Or can they really chase someone for 50 pennies? Does this borderline on harrassment? I paid it of course-but I am curious.I can't imagine a Judge or Court wasting their time on .50 cents. This "trooper" who pulled me over claimed I was going 60mph in a 45mph zone. I had happened to look down at my spedometer as I went over the hill and it said 50mph. So I was a bit suprised to be pulled over. And my spedometer is not off because when I drive through construction zones with the speed devices in place-my car and the devices speed calculation are right on. So did he really cut me a break? Maybe in some peoples eyes-but not mine. This is what is so very wrong with our justice system-too many corrupt people worried about .50 cents. And I say this as a former State Troopers wife-I know the B.S. that goes on-and the reason I asked this question is because in the ten years I spent in that world-I never, ever heard of anything more ridiculous than this.
