Driving violation leads to arrest

I didn't entirely understand how things were supposed to work in 2001 when I got a speeding ticket in Horseheads, but at least mailing in the fine listed on the ticket seemed to work. Losing a ticket and then trying to figure out what to do doesn't seem to have worked out so well for my county legislator, however:

Officers charged Robertson with third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle on Tuesday evening, Ithaca Police Department officials said. Officers stopped her on Maple Avenue around 10:20 p.m. because she had a tail light out, discovered her license was suspended for failure to answer a summons in Duanesburg and took her into custody.

I guess we'll find out January 6th, when Martha Robertson appears in Ithaca City Court, how this turns out, but in the meantime her critics are having a field day on the Journal's comment section.

There was also a nice piece on winter shares from Community-Supported Agriculture. We pick up our share at Ludgate Farms, but I wish more of this activity was in the Town of Dryden. It seems mostly to be to our west, on the other side of Cayuga Lake.
