You should hire a lawyer. I do not think the police chief can make his own law and automatic impound some one car I would even go as far as make him pay for your inconvenient and suffer

But you were speeding, right? You don't say what the speed limit was in that stretch of road.

I sympathize with your plight, especially with your son in the car. But if you break the law, you gotta pay the price...

speed limit was 65. flow of traffic was probably around 70-75. i was within 70-75 and is no way having my car impounded and getting a ticket for exhibition of speed justifiable. I will win this.

Should of got a good attorney and appealed that. Depending on what state you're in, this sounds like a bunch of crap.

Good thing you got your car back though
