I received this Notice of Violation (NOV) in the mail today for an event that is supposed to have occurred on 3/17/2012 around 4:23 pm (see included

Notice of Violation (NOV) from 3/17/2012 Recieved 3/29/2012
photo above). This Notice # 01110284766 on the left above indicates that I was traveling at 69 mph while returning from visiting Danielle in the Hospital in Iowa City on the indicated date. The timing is very important, because I stopped to have the vehicle serviced in the local establishment (see MISNUMBERING AND ITS IMPLICATIONS), when the time was documented as 3:37 pm and I am going to assume that the time as documented is when I stopped for service and not when the receipt was actually written up (closer to exiting). If the time shown is the latter this would be an indication of the approximate time when my service was completed. However, assuming that the time shown is when I stopped for service, and then spending around twenty (20) minutes there would have me exiting the establishment around 4:00 pm instead of approximately 3:40 pm. Due to the events that took place with the documenting of the questionable mileage/Odometer reading, the photo above right was taken on my arrival at my current Olin, IA residence around 5:17 pm (shown in lower right as the camera setting had not yet been adjusted for DST).

On I380 between Cedar Rapids and Iowa City the maximum speed of 70 mph is permitted and on entering the Cedar Rapids city limits, maximum speeds of 55 mph resume. Between Iowa City and my Olin, IA residence is approximately 70 miles. If the NOV is taken into consideration, this would indicate that speeds consistent with the 70 mph would have been traveled even after the 70 mph limit ended, which would have placed me in Olin, in an hour (or around 5:00 pm). However, the 5:17 pm arrival time is an indication that slower speeds were traveled than the constant 70 mph suggested in the NOV. Furthermore, if the time shown on the receipt was the time when the receipt was written up, making my exit from the establishment closer to 3:40 pm then, even much slower speeds would have been traveled in arriving at my Olin residence (as no other stops were made). SINCE I CANNOT PROVE ANY OF THIS, I WILL PAY THE VIOLATION, IN ORDER THAT WHEN DANIELLE’S ACCIDENT REPORT IS ISSUED NEXT WEEK, (the week of 4/1/2012), THERE WILL BE NO CONSTRAINTS STANDING IN THE WAY OF OFFERING A CRITICAL REVIEW IF SUCH IS WARRANTED.
