Default Re: First speeding ticket

Got a notice of violation in the mail about a month ago. Only reason there wasn't a fine was that a good portion of my face was covered by my sunscreen. If I wanted to I could identify the driver... GFYS Scottsdale! Hooray Ford!

29 in a 15, the cop dropped a mile so it wouldn't be reckless driving. I pulled into a school zone from inbetween the signs.... I thought the limit was 30, but I was still speeding.


The worst part was when a kid with a lime green crotch rocket told me that the very same dipshit cop, who was rude to me, let him off for doing 60 in the same school zone.

my speedometer reads around 5 over--even those trailer things they set out that clock speed say 5 diff than my truck.

My first speeding ticket was in a 95 aspire lol. If you guys know what they are i'm sure your laughing at this. But i was on the highway minding my own business when this car came flying up on me. It was blinding me so i downshifted and gave the lil beast all she had. Then next thingI know cherrys and berrys. 67+ in a 55. which is impossible cause the car shook so bad at 60. And btw he didn't clock me. He pulled me over based on his speedometer.

I read that as 95 in an aspire... The story was much less impressive than I hoped...

I've only gotten one ticket, clocked me at 43 in a 20.
It was a straight country road that I never thought I'd see a cop on. It was dark and he got me, lol.

----------

But I admit, I'm a total lead foot. Just get lucky and haven't been pulled over since then. Like when I go down to Lexington, I go 85-90 most of the way. But I don't drive stupid. I don't weave in and out of lanes or ride peoples asses.

I also got pulled over by one of the new state highway patrol chargers. Them suckers are hard to spot. He asked me if I intended on running lol. I said "Sir I'm in a 4cyl ranger" He said I thought you was gonna try to evade me. After I got my ticket I went to the municipal court and told the lady behind the glass that I just payed a payment for the new car. She didn't find it funny one bit

Did you guys hear about the man that payed his traffic ticket of 135 dollars or something like that with exactly 135 dollar bills folded into origami figures?

That's interesting.. My 91's speedo is 3-4 over

I've never got a speeding ticket, but I've got a ticket for failure to maintain lane, and a PTA for reckless and evading responsibility
