All cops can get you for speeding or any other traffic violation

Q. Hello Honk: This past weekend I saw a very odd sight on the 91 Freeway – an Orange County Sheriff’s Department patrol car with no one daring to drive past him or her for a few miles until the sheriff’s car exited the freeway. I’m thinking that was because it was a black and white car and most everyone thought it was the California Highway Patrol’s. Can an Orange County sheriff’s deputy give you a speeding ticket on the freeway? – Mario Luna, Anaheim A. You bet. The deputy’s focus was likely o...
