You are my kind of cop, hangcoveguy! We need more like you!

Last year we were going through Emporia, VA. and got stopped for doing 76 in a 65. We actually thought it was 70 in that area, but it wasn't. Anyway, he gave us a ticket which was $55. but administratives fees were 61$ so the ticket was $116.

We were surprised as we didn't think it was that unreasonable for the highway and it was a straight stretch, but we WERE speeding. (I wasn't driving but it was the first ticket for my better half in probably twenty years.)

After the cop thanks us for being so nice. I was very surprised at that.
