Oshkosh, Wisconsin's Jeffrey L. Manke was ticketed for driving 71 mph in a 55 mph zone. Jeffrey decided to fight the ticket and argued that Wisconsin's speeding statutes were unconstitutional as they violated his religious freedom because, according to the Bible, he's a man, not a person, and laws prohibit a person from speeding. The court ruled that Jeffrey didn't explain how or why being a 'person' for purposes of the speeding statute is a burden upon his religious beliefs.
