Trial Date: July 9, 2014
Hello All. This is my first time posting on a forum and so I apologize, in advance, for any etiquette violations I may make! I did read the intro post and FAQ and so . . .
I need some advice please. I passed a speed sign with an 80 and an arrow ahead. This was strange for me, since I was only used to seeing speed signs with arrows ahead in situations where the speed was soon to be reduced and you need to start to slow down now. In this case, I was in a 60 zone and saw this sign and so started to speed up and I was pulled over between this 80 km with an arrow sign and the full 80 km sign (actually I was pulled over at the 80km sign). I was going 83km. It seems to me that a speed sign with an arrow indicates a transition zone between one speed and another and that is why I began to accelerate. What other purpose could there be for a sign indicating a higher speed ahead?
Am I wrong. What advice can you give me for my trial?
Of course, I wouldn't mind a ticket for 3 km over with no points off.
