If you receive a speeding ticket by a Department of Veterans Affairs police officer, you should remember to pay it in a timely manner - even if you were only doing 5 miles per hour over the posted limit. If you don't pay the ticket, you could receive a summons to appear in the Federal U.S. Courthouse in downtown Nashville.
Due to the fact that the police on the VA Medical Campus in Murfreesboro are federal verses city, county or state... their speeding tickets carry a lot of weight. That is one reason they often rely on local authorities for help.
Rutherford County Sheriffs' Sgt. Michael Rodgers told WGNS...
Now you know... A speeding ticket on a federal property maybe more complicated then most thought.
