speeding

alright got my first ticket yesterday.. its a mail order thing so i dont have to go to court.. any ideas how much a 53 on 35 is gonna cost? it sounds really bad but this street really shouldnt be 35 and i was in a pack of cars when a cop jumped out in the middle of the road and pointed at me and gave me the ticket.. should i be looking to spend around 185 $ or more... plus dont you have to double it to get it off your record.. also how many points does it take of your license or whatever ?

well think of yourself as lucky, 3 more mph you would have gotten a wreckless indangerment. i think its 5 bucks per mile over until 10 and then its more.

depends on where you live. in the city of baton rouge down here, its higher, somewhere like $150. but in a more rural parish of louisiana speeding is only $116.

here are some other interesting violations and fines from this same parish according to the paper i was given with my ticket a while back, double the speed is $161, hit and run is like $350 and street racing is $350-$400. i found those funny. you can run over someone and leave and only get charged $350. you can do 130 in a 65 and only pay $161. you can turn a public street into a quarter mile dragstrip and only get popped for $350, although i would just rather go 5 minutes up the road to an actual quarter mile dragstrip and run for $10, but thats just me

You may think I'm ****ting you, but I'm not, show up to court and ask for a jury trial, MANY MANY times the officer will drop the speeding ticket

other things you can do is when you get a trial by jury is to postpone the court date as many times as possible. then by the time you HAVE to go, they probably would have either already dropped it, not cared anymore, or forgotten why you are even there.

i have friends that have tried this on parking and speeding tickets and have had success.

and ask for all the cops paper work, if any of it is out of date, you will win by default.
