    I got something interesting in the mail today

    Last Friday I got to take my ski for a ride here in Milwaukee. It was a 45 degree day so I figured what the hell. When I got back to my truck I had a tag on my windshield of my truck. It was from a city of Milwaukee Police officer to call him regarding boating laws. There was not a soul out on the water that day, so I was going through a no wake zone at about 20 MPH because I didnt want to ride for about 3/4 of a mile at 4 MPH. None of the buoys were in the water anyways. The cop obviously spotted me from shore. Well, today in my mailbox I got a ticket for 97 bucks. Funny, since I was never face to face with a cop, and they didn't have my registration numbers off the ski. They just had the license off my truck as far as I know. So I am now planning to appear in court on March 5th.

    thats interesting.issued a ticket,but no signature on it.i'd definately take it to court,but the cop will lie and say he can identify you as the same person.i'd fight it as how could my truck be in a no wake zone???or make the cop give adescription of the ski or ask for the reg #'s on the ticket.could have been somebody else that launched somewhere else.ask for a jury trial,a judge will always side with the cop,i beat 2 cops on a wake zone ticket in court with a jury trial,the jury said the cops simply weren't believable

    Alot of the no wake zones has to do with land erosion issues as well as boat safety. I think BFC got one of these for the same reason last spring.

    I agree, but a ticket with no person, no ski, no contact? Next will be cameras with GPS attached.

    No different than a red light camera is it?

    What is the ticket for? Speeding or wake in a no wake zone?

    Its for going to slow. That is why the note was left on his truck as officer got tired of waiting around.
    Just joking.

    I would say you could beat the ticket, as that's total BS without regs and proof.

    Exactly I'd throw it in the garbage just like I did with all of the speed camera tickets I got in AZ, if they want to issue a valid ticket they need to serve you in person.

    Here in wa they will not issue your car tabs (I think) if you don't pay your camera light tickets.
