Re: my first Ticket
i can not even begin to count tickets. i remember that in one year i had given over $2000 in fines to Louisa County in the middle of Virginia. I know i got at least 2 speeding tickets a month in that county (i drove from norfolk to almost dayton ohio almost every weekend). one of my most noteable ones was i was traveling south/east on US35 in Ohio towards West Virginia on my way back to Norfolk, VA. I was sitting low in my seat, my wife in the pass, and a friend in the back. Music was up and i was just chillin, so low i could not see out the rear view. After a while i decided to check my rear view to find the beautiful red and blue of the Ohio State Highway Patrol in my rear view. He pulled me over for doing 83 in a 55. When he got to my window he was like,
Cop: umm...do you realize i have been following you for 2 and a half miles???
cop: why were you going so fast
me: me and my buddy got recalled back to the ship, we were up here for the weekend and we have 8 hours to report for duty.
cop: ok, well ill just write you up for the speed and not the wreckless driving...be more careful on your way!
my most scary time i was in WV traveling up hill and i downshifted and punched it. when i crested the hill i was going 96 in a 65 and i saw light turn on over on the shoulder. I just pulled over. he actually had to back up a little to actually get behind me. after taking my info he backed up like 50 ft...then after about 10 min pulled forward and got on his PA and asked me to meet him at the rear of the vehicle....sooooo though i was going to jail.
he just told me to slow down and wrote me up for 10 over...
