Keith Ledgerwood admits he has a lead foot.
Authorities say he also has a smooth tongue that has helped him talk police out of writing him speeding tickets and cite him instead for lesser violations that don’t affect his driver’s license or auto insurance.
Those two views collided 16 months ago when Ledgerwood was cited for speeding in one of the Cincinnati area’s most affluent cities, touching off a legal fight that has has seen his case dismissed three times, reinstated each time, become the subject of an appeal and now possibly headed to the Ohio Supreme Court – all over a $95 speeding ticket.
On one side is Ledgerwood, 29, an information technology consultant then of Springfield Township, now of Maineville. He believes he’s being harassed by a city that initially botched its case against him and now is doing all it can to stick it to him.
