Warning predatory ticketing in Lake Havasu
We are an older couple (in our fifties) who visited Lake Havasu a few weeks ago. We were ticketed for making an excessive wake on a rented wave runner. We were just learning how to ride the thing and we were barely moving....no way were we being dangerous or destructive or making an excessive wake. We were visiting mid-week and the lake was far from crowded. We were not under the influence and we are not party people on Spring Break. (We had heard that Lake Havasu was tough on spring breakers but thought that we would be ok because we are a middle age family on vacation.) Well... we were mistaken.....and we wont be taken again. The fine was $185 and the letter says that we have to appear in person to even request a hearing and then return again for our day in court.
Thanks to the information we have learned from reading the blogs and news reports....we know we are not alone. Many tourist beside us....are upset about what seems to be a very lucrative "ticketing" policy that effects car drivers and boaters.
We have also learned that is not worth the risk of returning to fight this outrageous ticket (though we only live a few hours away) because the system seems to be designed to make money off of us. According to other reports.... The Lake Havasu Judge has boasted about bringing in money to the city coffers......and he used to supervise the very officers who are targeting the tourist with trumped up tickets. One person called him a modern day Judge Roy Bean......We wish we had done our homework before we left for Lake Havasu.....we hope that our experience is helpful to others planning to visit. All I can say....is at least.....know before you go.......or you might be sorry.
P.S. Can anyone tell me where to get one of those "Boycott Lake Havasu" bumper stickers that I keep reading about?

There is also a short but steep trail leading to a Lookout Point and a Camping Area on the opposite side of the parking lot from Whyte's Trail.
Good walking shoes, plenty of water, sunscreen, a hat, weather appropriate clothing. Maybe a snack.
