A California woman got three speeding tickets in an hour on Interstate
81 in Pennsylvania, which is basically the Keystone State’s equivalent
to the Grapevine.
A State Trooper clocked Kai Kitchen travelling 93mph in a 70mph zone at
about 7:00 a.m.; she was cited for reckless driving and immediately released.
Forty minutes later, the same State Trooper clocked her doing 97mph; once
again, she was cited and released. At about 8:00 a.m., another State Trooper
clocked Ms. Kitchen at 94mph. This time, she was taken into custody. Ms.
Kitchen wound up
serving four days and paying a $1,000 fine.
Some Internet sympathizers claimed that she was singled out because she
is black, but her attorney declared that “This doesn’t have
anything to do with the color of anyone’s skin.”
Out of State Tickets
Most all states belong to either the
Drivers’ License Compact or the Non-Resident Violator Compact; a third entity – the Driver
License Agreement – may one day supplant them both, but only a handful
of states (not including California) are DLA jurisdictions. Both the DLC
and NRVC let different state DMVs share information regarding traffic
tickets and license suspension, so a county clerk in Nevada or Arizona
will know about that speeding ticket you got in Barstow, and add points
to your license as appropriate.
If you get a ticket in California and you reside out of state, in most
courts, an attorney can appear on your behalf. That means that you will
probably not have to come back to get the charges
reduced, minimizing the adverse impact in your home state.
