Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James didn’t have to worry about a speeding ticket when she visited Edwards Air Force Base, but what about the rest of us?
During her visit, Secretary James presided over a promotion ceremony at the base theater. She also attended programming briefs, met with a number of service-members, and visited some special facilities, like the Benefield Anechoic Facility and U.S. Air Force Test Pilot School. She noted that, in terms of the number of airmen, the Air Force is smaller today than it was in 1947, when it became a separate armed forces branch. Because of the cuts, the men and women at Edwards are doing yeoman’s work in extending the life of aging aircraft, she added.
“Thank you for what you’re doing; please keep focused on your mission, focused on your families and keep focused on each other,” Secretary James concluded.
Federal Traffic Ticket
Though they will deny it if asked, some MPs and on-base traffic enforcement officers scrutinize vehicles without parking passes or other military identification. That attitude is bad news for visitors, who are so intent on finding their way around the sprawling base that they may miss a stop sign or a speed limit change.
These matters often turn into big headaches. First, all the tickets are heard at the federal courthouse in Bakersfield, which is about a two-hour drive each way from Edwards. Second, since the judge only hears traffic tickets on specific days, no more than once a month. Third, traffic school is much more difficult to obtain in federal tickets.
An attorney licensed to practice in federal court can appear for you and negotiate a favorable deal on your behalf, saving you both time and money.
