Speeding Ticket

I got a speeding ticket today. Me! Actually it was just a warning, but I don't know if you call that a speeding warning. I thought the speed limit was 30 mph, but it turns out once you go through the four way stop, it turns to 20 mph. I did not realize that. I was pulled over by two cops on bicycles. I was completely baffled as to why they stopped me because I thought I was going under the speed limit.

They checked my licence, then checked my plates, and found out the last (and only) time I was stopped for anything was 21 years ago (also in June - apparently a bad month for me). I think they decided I was telling the truth about not knowing the speed limit had changed since clearly I have been a model citizen of the automobile for many years. So I just got a warning. Whew!
