A Fast One

Now making the rounds again is an email hoax with the heading “Memphis' 30-day speeding ticket frenzy,” detailing a 30-day ticket-writing operation by Tennessee State troopers, starting July 31st. The missive goes on to state that exceeding the speed limit 5 miles per hour will be grounds for a ticket and that troopers have been directed to issue a ticket every 10 minutes.

According to Snopes.com, this email hoax started in New Jersey in May 2005.
