Excessive Speed: Warren Mayor Ticketed – Again

WARREN (AP) – A Metro Detroit mayor appears to have a lead foot when motoring around area streets.

The Macomb Daily in Mount Clemens reports Friday that Warren Mayor Jim Fouts has been stopped for exceeding a posted speed limit for the third time in three years.

Court records show he was driving 45 mph in a 30 mph zone on March 3 in Royal Oak, north of Detroit. Fouts was ticketed for “blockading traffic,” which came with a $175 fine, but no points on his driver’s license.

Secretary of State records show he was ticketed in 2010 for driving 75 mph in a 70 mph zone on a divided highway in Troy.

Fouts also was pulled over in 2009 for going 45 mph in a 40 mph zone.

    Here’s an elected bounder that sets a good example of a civic minded individual. But wait, he’s important. He’s mayor of Warren. He’s always in a hurry and you must get out of his way. He is elected to lead and guide, not follow silly rules for the common citizen. But the good news is he’s adding to the city budget by paying his fines. Just don’t get in his way.

    This guy is a joke. Refuses to investigate $180,000 of missing road salt in the DPW. Refuses to investigate illegal activities in the WPD. Smoke and Mirriors.
