Speeding cushion no more?

According to Syracuse news channel YNN, "more and more drivers nationally are getting pulled over and ticketed for only being just a few miles over the limit":
A study published in the Journal of Law and Economics found the number of tickets officers write goes up when the economy is down especially as states and cities across the country use traffic enforcement to balance their budgets.

A speeding ticket, whether deserved or not, can have serious impacts on your insurance rates and even your privilege to drive within the state. If you receive a ticket, even if it is for only a few miles over the speed limit, you may wish to consult a qualified attorney to protect your legal rights.
