Re: Easy Solution

You will change your opinion when you get a speeding ticket for doing 66 in 65mph zone.

Most jurisdictions don't allow for speeding citations for only 1 MPH over the limit.

I can't attest for laws in other states, But I do know the law in Pennsylvania.

You have to be at least 5 MPH over the limit to be stopped for speeding if tracked by radar (only the State Police can use radar in PA).

You have to be at least 10 MPH to be stopped when tracked using the Robic or Accutrack stopwatch.

The only way you can be stopped for exactly 1 MPH over the limit is of you are clocked or paced by an officer in a cruiser with a certified speedometer, but that's probably not going to happen.

Just about any judge is going to find a defendant not guilty for a citation written for 1 mile over the limit. I say just about every because I can't account for every judge in PA, but any cop that writes someone for going 1 MPH over the limit is going to look like a total ass hat in front of the local judge.
