Puzzling Week: Speeding Tickets




In Massachusetts the fine for speeding is a flat fee of $100 plus $5 for each mile per hour above the 55mph speed limit. In Vermont the fine for speeding is a flat fee of $50 and $10 for each mile per hour above the 65mph speed limit.

If you were stopped for speeding right on the border between Massachusetts and Vermont, and stopped by both a Vermont and a Massachusetts trooper, which state would you like to be fined by?

Explain your reasoning.
