If you get a speeding ticket while traveling, does it stay on your record back in your home state?
We receive this question from friends and family (and readers) all the time, so we looked into how the tangled web is organized.

Coronado was driving the car on Friday when he had a blowout and crashed into a truck along state Highway 121. The collison ruptured the dashboard and, much to Coronado’s surprise, out popped 21 individually-wrapped bags of heroin. Continue reading “Car Bought at Police Auction Lands Driver in Jail” »
