Re: Well, guys.

learn from your stupidity or bad luck which ever and try not to do it again

Always take the driving school if offered. You can do it at home too.

I'm no stranger to those flashing lights. my car stands out. I had to take all of the black out stuff off.

Well, I was coming home from school going to meet my mechanic and talk about our fox project we are doing.

I was excited, blasting music. All that. And I happened to be going 73 in a 55. :/

The officer was pretty nice, the ticket was $89 and some odd cents, but still. Sucks. :0

Re: Well, guys.

I was terrified when i first got pulled over, never realized how absolutely BLINDING their lights are in your rear views!

I was going 100 in a 45 cop came over and i gave him the big ol blue/grey eyes. He had no evidence that i was going the speed i was, and i joked around how i was in a muscle car that had quicker acceleration that most (was back in my SN95), so he lectured me then let me off.

Still terrifying!

I try really hard to keep it under 80 so hard though. 83-85 is really comfortable in this car. I keep pace with traffic cause there is always some ******* who can't. They frequently get picked out.

I got pulled over going 133 in a 60. Officer said he thought he wasn't going to catch me. Only took him 15 miles maxing his unit out.

They are! I've got a CDL and you are not allowed to take defensive driving. Also, fines are outrageous. I got popped doing 107 in a 80 and my ticket was about $400.

No ticket, I worked with the officer during some drug busts so he let me off with a warning. He definitely let me know what should've happened to me.

Where I'm from it's an attitude test. I've seen plenty of drivers fight and argue. That only makes things worse. Just be polite and hope for the best.

When I was 21, I was in my GST Swapped 97 Dodge Avenger pushing 11psi. I was getting pounded by a Cobra we were up to about 145mph when he took the shoulder to pass a Mini Van. The driver of the
Mini Van got scared when she saw us coming and she tried to move to the shoulder too. The Cobra Side swiped her and then hit the guard rail and took flight for a few seconds and then skidded on it's roof for almost a mile.
The driver of the Cobra was pretty beat up but able to stand on his on. The lady and her two kids in the Mini Van were unharmed. The city took my car away and I actually did 30 days in the Annex. I don't know what happened to the Guy in the Cobra.
I'd be lying if I said I've never raced again. I just don't take chances when there's any traffic on the road.

Geez,... And here I am a habitual traffic offender from years ago but never street raced. Got my license suspended over a ticket I forgot and kept getting pulled over for random stuff when the courthouse didn't do a damn thing when I got my fines paid to get my license back. No fun.

That was when I was 18 and starting college. I've been good besides the tail light tint.
