Billings PD Caught Me Riding Dirty, Learn From My Expensive Mistake
It seems people in Billings either drive five miles an hour under the speed limit or they go at least ten above.
My experience driving in Billings has been a very interesting one. I’ve been road raged on several occasions in the wee hours of the morning. People just seem to be grumpy while in their cars.
I know this is relatable to many people in Billings; I read about it all the time from posts on the “Reckless Drivers of Billings” page on Facebook.
My Montana Plates are Finally on My Car
I do believe a lot of the road rage came from my Colorado plates, but again, why...? Harassing another person in their car just for living their life in “your town”- that’s the lamest thing I ever heard.
I just learned yesterday that once you move to a new state, you must change your state driver's license within 120 days of moving. That was news to me from a Billings Police Officer as he pulled me over on Broadwater.
Slow Your Roll
Yep, Billings PD made an example out of me. I literally just left the DMV for my Montana Plates, ready to throw them on my car all excited to be officially a Montanan. I was driving west on Broadwater around 11:30 am, and the police lights came on out of nowhere.
I thought the cops got a call and they were off to help someone- Nope! They clocked me going 46 mph in a 35 zone. OOPS! 😏 I think my Colorado plates were what flagged the officer. Either way, it's fine. I deserved the ticket and owned up to my mistakes.
I got a fat ticket for speeding and the officer let me off with a warning for my license still being from Colorado.
Apparently, Billings PD is cracking down on speeding, especially on Broadwater. So be aware, and don’t waste $100 on trying to get somewhere in a speedy fashion.
Slow your roll, take your time. And please, for the love of everything good in this world, do not road rage.
