Speeding Ticket Snares Jimmy Farris

A misdemeanor driving without privileges charge will be dropped against newly minted Democratic 1st District congressional candidate Jimmy Farris after Georgia officials corrected the record and confirmed Farris has a valid drivers license. Farris said he will pay an $85 speeding ticket he received on U.S. 95 just north of Lewiston as he returned from the Sept. 24 Idaho Vandal game in Moscow. Clearing the matter was important for Farris, who didn't need a misdemeanor to begin his long-shot race against 1st-term GOP Rep. Raul Labrador. Farris, a Lewiston native, moved to Meridian in August from Atlanta, where he played for the NFL Atlanta Falcons/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: When did you last get a speeding ticket? How fast were you going and what was the posted speed limit?
