What the hell is the charge for that? Illegal use of the carpool lane?

Oh, and tint your windows!

That shit really sucks. I have a laundry list of shit I could have bought for my truck with that $206.

For now I'm doing my best to drive like a grandma so I don't have to give 1/4 of my paycheck to shit fucks.

CHP can be pretty corrupt man. My dad is a sheriff so he doesn't care about traffic. The only time he's written traffic tickets is when someone does something REALLY illegal. CHP officers do the same shit that they write tickets to taxpayers for. You just indirectly bought that officer and his family a nice dinner out! What a nice guy.

They're not. From someone who has had one family member killed by a careless speeder weaving thru traffic, and another who is a LEO, your comments are out of line and immature.

Yeah my dad says that they aren't, and so does my older brother, who is in the hiring process for Monterey PD. They say its such a marginal amount of revenue compared to how much income and outcome they have. I just think CHP officers can get power hungry.

And you think I don't care about speeders? How about when a kid from your high school endos his car in your front yard at 60 and basically scalps himself. While you're holding his head together and calling 911. You don't know the half of it Mac.. cops can be dicks. Nuff said.

Cops are people doing a job. They get told to protect, and that includes giving you a ticket for speeding. I'll betcha that your friend wouldn't have ripped his scalp off if there was a cop up the road. Instead of crying on the Internet about how you got caught, be a man and own up to your mistake. If you think that you were wrongfully given a ticket or harassed, do something about it. You're given a chance to fight your ticket in court, bitching on the Internet doesn't help you at all. Cops can be short tempered because of people with negative attitudes who give them a hard time for doing a job no one appreciates but needs to be done. A good attitude can help in more situations and keep one ticket from becoming 2, 3, 4+. I've been pulled over way more than you, but it comes with the territory of driving a modified vehicle.

People forget that everything in CA is more expensive, but you also make more money. A million dollar house here can be about 3 million in different areas around the US. Back on topic, it really does suck about your ticket. I'm thankful I haven't gotten one yet in my 2 short licensed years.
