I totally agree. The law is the law and I don't give a fk who you are.
This is NC General Statute § 20‑16.1.
§ 20‑16.1. Mandatory suspension of driver's license upon conviction of excessive speeding; limited driving permits for first offenders.
(a) Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Article, the Division shall suspend for a period of 30 days the license of any driver without preliminary hearing on receiving a record of the driver's conviction of either (i) exceeding by more than 15 miles per hour the speed limit, either within or outside the corporate limits of a municipality, if the person was also driving at a speed in excess of 55 miles per hour at the time of the offense, or (ii) driving at a speed in excess of 80 miles per hour at the time of the offense.
It also states that traveling greater than 15 mph over the speed limit results in an automatic guilty plea of a class 2 misdemeanor.
They should have snatched his ass out of the car and taken him to jail.
