Two of us got stopped in BYRON WYO, last year in a speed trap in their town. They said Wyo had an agreement with Iowa so I could pay my fine by mailing it in. He said if I didn't pay by a certain date then Iowa would pull my licence till the fine was paid. My friend was from Michigan that didn't have an agreement so his option was to either pay the fine on the spot, ( a cc was fine) or go to jail untill the matter was taken care of.
The fine for me was $100 so I just gave him a c-note hoping he would just pocket it and never send in the paperwork.....
I do warn you about BYRON,,, their speed limit is 5mph lower than most of the other towns around, and they enforce it to the max.....
The cop bragged about how many people he pulled over every week, and it appeared staggereing. He said it wasn't about the money, ( Dodge 3Ton decked out with everything you could imagine) but that the city fathers wanted to protect the childern. I thought afterwards they should put signs up on the outskirts of town that say SPEEDTRAP IF YOU SPEED YOU WILL GET A TICKET. I think that would warn us visitors who pass through once in a lifetime to slow down so we don't become a hazard to their children.
