Okay, to say I'm highly amused is an understatement.
Somebody please define *fair and speedy* for me. Somehow I'm thinking my situation doesn't qualify.
I got a speeding ticket on I695 in Bedford Hills, NY on February 1, 2002. The cop even told me that they were so backed up that he'd recommend requesting a trial date and if they don't get back to me within 6 months then it will be thrown out.
Today, June 25, 2004 I got a notice in the mail saying my court date has been scheduled for July 28, 2004. Somehow I dont think 2 1/2 years qualifies as speedy... even in New York.
How much trouble do you think I'll get in if I call and laugh my ass off at them on Monday morning???
