Speeding is breaking the law, people

If you are speeding, especially 14 mph over the speed limit, you deserve a ticket. Believe it or not, that is breaking the law. As a matter of fact, I thought most of us drivers had the realization that these laws were put into place to be followed, not ignored. So the next time somebody writes in complaining that the Modesto Police Department ticketed them for speeding, please realize you only make yourself look foolish. And realize that giving you a ticket for being an irresponsible driver is what traffic cops do. They are not only doing their job, but by the amount of unwarranted complaints in The Bee lately, it seems they are doing their job well. Good job, MPD.
