What!?!

A cop that has nothing better to do...didn't those cops learn years ago when the feds busted them for giving bogus tickets for speeding. Karma, it'll get'em back for that one.

Get in and Get out!! Speed Trap,etc.

I fished out of GM for years and I've learned to be legal, drive the speed limits, and don't use the local merchants. Sorry about your license plate. If you were a 'local' you wouldn't need one!! Good luck.

dont blame cops for doing their job

first let me say 90% of the people who have their license plate go missing THINK its stolen but in fact it has simply fallen off on the road somewhere so maybe yours was indeed stolen but can you be absolutely certain it was still on the trailer when you parked it? how many of us look that closely at the trailer when we park it?





wether YOU think its justified or not its the cops job to write you a ticket for no plate so you have no case to blame them, everyone ALWAYS has some excuse why they shouldnt get a ticket and the cops have heard them all.



with a copy of the police report showing your plate was stolen, im sure the town will tear up your ticket but if you have no report then how can you say they should believe your 'story' which is all it is without proof.



yes the golden meadow speed trap is strictly enforced and used as a source of badly needed revenue for the town but its 50 mph speed limit is not as bad as it used to be (45 mph) when it got its famous reputation as such so that has nothing to do with the fact of you getting ticketed.

marsh monkey!!!

its a waste of time to talk to the mayor!!!! yes, both bolts dont come out at the same time, it was stolen, no doubt!!! golden meadow has their reputation and will have it forever!!! thibodaux pd is like golden meadow, love to give tickets for anything at all, yet they speed thru town and its ok!!!!!!!! when u passed thru thibodaux, if u did, you are lucky a cop wasnt behind you, because u would have got another ticket for sure!!!
