WARREN (WWJ) – One local mayor appears to have a lead foot when driving around town.
The Macomb Daily reports 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 3rd in Royal Oak.
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 Fouts was ticketed in 2010 for driving 75 mph in a 70 mph zone in Troy, and was pulled over in 2009 for going 45 in a 40 mph zone.
