were you, in fact, the driver?
I probably was. That has no impact on the case however as the only one who drives my car is my wife. Florida statue states the "violation" is to the vehicle, and not the driver. So the only way I could get out of it if I wasn't driving was sign a sworn affidavit with all of the info of the actually driver. There are no points, its just $$$.
Not to sound too woe is me, but I haven't had a ticket in 5 years (after a very rough start to my driving career), and truly don't remember this "incident" at all. Judging from the date and time it was when I was coming back from a theme park with my family, and just had it on cruise control. The speed limit in the area (from looking it up) is 55 and the ticket says I was doing 57. My guess again is I had it on cruise control and got caught with a quick yellow.
