Speeding ticket complaint a case of sour grapes

-A A +A

Charlie Smith was just caught breaking the law, and Smith’s rant in the Roane County News’ Feb. 1 edition of Our Readers Write was just sour grapes.  

The legal posted speed of 55 mph on Gallaher Road is plenty fast enough, especially at night.

Smith was more than likely going faster than 70 mph, as most police officers are apt to  forgive a few miles and give you a break on a ticket.  

As for being ashamed of Tennessee, Smith should try pulling the same stunt in Mississippi.

It would be interesting to see how they handle the ticket and what it cost. Smith might have gotten off cheap.

Maybe next time Smith will choose to obey the speed limits.
