Officer Mike Reveals His Policy Behind Giving Speeding Ticket (Listen)

During a conversation about speeding tickets this morning, Officer Mike from New Jersey called the show and revealed what we've always wanted to know: how fast do you really need to be going over the speed limit to get a ticket?

He told Elvis Duran and the crew that you need to think about speeding in terms of percentages. Going 10 mph over the speed limit in a 25 mph zone is way worse than going 10 mph over in a 60 mph zone. When you break it down into percentages, the first scenario is 40% over the speed limit and the second scenario is between 16-17% over. Totally makes sense, right?

Officer Mike is more willing to let a driver off the hook for a speeding ticket when the percentage they are speeding is lower. Listen to the breakdown of his thought process in the IGTV clip below!
