A Woman Got a Speeding Ticket While Her Van Was on a Tow Truck

A Woman Got a Speeding Ticket While Her Van Was on a Tow Truck...you read that right!

Have you ever tried to get out of a speeding ticket? Well more often than not, you probably don’t have much of a case...unless you’re this woman from Ohio!

A grandmother in East Cleveland, Ohio named Joann Gibson recently got two tickets in the mail for doing 27 in a 20-mile-per-hour zone. The fine was $105. But the weird part is, she wasn’t driving. And there’s proof.

Her van was on a tow truck when it was caught by an automated camera, which gave her the ticket, but in a video, you can clearly see that the reason for the ticket, was the driver of the tow truck!

The driver was going 27mph in a 20mph zone, so whoever was driving the ruck is the one responsible for the ticket, but the camera caught Joann’s license plate!

It happened in December after her van broke down. She says she went to a nearby police department to show them the mistake, but they told her to contact a third-party vendor that operates the camera.

Her local news just did a story, and the president of her city council is trying to help her get the ticket expunged. Even if the fine is waived, it could affect her insurance rates.
