It is usually not enjoyable to get pulled over on a Kentucky road and get a speeding ticket. All forms of speeding are not the same. Throughout the United States, there are three variants of speed limits. There is the basic speed limit, an absolute speed limit and a presumed speed limit. If a person is pulled over for speeding and issued a ticket, he or she has the best chance of making a defense if he or she is aware of, in advance, the type of speeding citation he or she received.
Individuals driving through Kentucky should be aware that simple traffic violations could escalate into much more serious charges if they happen to be transporting drugs. For example, the Scott County Sheriff's Office recently announced that law enforcement officers arrested three people traveling on I-75 within hours of each other. They were each allegedly carrying drugs in their vehicles.
