Speeding Tickets

Well after my ticket I purchased a Passport Escort 9500ix radar detector for $500. Perfect, and recommended to purchase if you love to speed. I love the GPS on it also! Stores false alarms after a few times passing by. (:

I know my area very well now and I generally give myself more than enough time to get places so I don't really need a detector

OMG... in my LIFE??

gotta be 15 or so? Missouri you used to be able to fire a lawyer for no points then they started limiting it to once a year. Florida is even harder but cops are nicer.

Stupidest: 28 in a 25.
Highest: started as 117 in a 55. They threatened arrest then dropped speed on ticket to 92.
Most: 2 in one day back in mid 90's.
Luckiest: Tried to make a yellow light, cop pulled me over asked if I knew why. I said could be a number of reasons. He said like what I said speeding or running a red light. He said yup. Took expired insurance card. Said you know this is expired and you changed lane in intersection which is reckless driving too. Came back with a WARNING!! said I had a good attitude and admited my mistake.

Off the top of my head ...

78 in a 55 (2nd day I had my license)
94 in a 55 and speed contest - I was in my 2000 Dakota V8 passing an old first generation Ford Lightning who was sandbagging and floored it once I went to pass, I let out at around 110, there was a cop on the side road that tagged us. We both got tickets but I won.
68 in a 55

Several other times I got pulled over, I never got a ticket for speeding..

So far only 2. I've been pulled over 7 times (I'm 26), and only gotten 2 tickets, so I must be relatively lucky in that regard.

First Speeding Ticket :

I was 17 and driving home from football practice in the fall so it was dark. I'm on a 2 lane road with a speed limit of 55. The right lane is all backed up, bumper to bumper and I'm crusin at probably around 60 or so in the left lane. All of a sudden I notice someone ontop of my *** behind me.

So being a young driver I thought "Man, this person really needs to get somewhere, let me help them out." I speed up to get ahead of the pack in the right lane and when I put my blinker on to switch lanes, the unmarked cop car behind me flips his lights (I was going around 72 by that time).

I pull over and he asks, "Where are you going in such a hurry?"

I said "Well to be honest I thought you had to go somewhere so I was trying to help you since the right lane was backed up."

He said "That's no excuse to speed."

Mind you this cop was from a football rival and I had my school football sticker on the back of my car.

The 2nd one I was just being dumb and rushing to get somewhere.

Oh I was. It was back in early 80's. They were by the highschool just pulling people over in droves. I had to wait 10 minutes just for them to get to my car to write it lol.

1 ever 2 days after buying my speed3. 85 in a 65, sent the $$.

Last speed related pullover gave a warning. I knew I was getting pulled over and got off at the next exit. I was parked well of the road with my documents in hand. The cop said: "you knew you were getting pulled over" Yes sir. Do you know why I was pulling you over. Yes sir, figured it was for speeding. Showed him my documents, he looked at his computer and came back with a warning.

I got a ticket for illegal pass on the right. Here is Sac people squat behind those that are turning left; rather than go around. I went around 2 cars and saw the cop, knew I was getting picked off. I could have fought it, but decided to pay, and take traffic school.

One fix it ticket for tint. In BFE (Winters, CA) cops came up with hands on guns.

Lessons: no tint on front windows. I have a radar detector. I used it every time I am on the freeway and around town. Unfortunately it lacks the GPS/learning ability. My next one will have that feature.

Cheers,

G

Speeding Tickets

Got one yesterday. State Trooper said I was going 43 in a 35 and then said he followed me up hill going 41 in a 35. Wrote me a ticket for 10 mph over.

I plan to fight it since I too have a dash camera with audio.

I only had one, 4 am, country road, driving a Jeep Cherokee. 55 in a 35. It was one of those ones where it is 55 out of town then drops to 35 once you hit city limits. The cop was just sitting there waiting for someone to come in going over 35. That was back in 2007.

I have been pulled over for other reasons, but never got a ticket besides that one.

None. When I was 15 I was pulled over by a State Trooper for my tag lights being burnt out. It hasn't happened again.

5 over the last 35 years. The worst one was a 89 in a 55 on a motorcycle. The worst with a warning. The cop was following me and when I noticed him in my mirror. I looked down and I was doing just over 100 in a 65 on motorcycle again. That is a long story worth telling but I have no time to right now.

Break time at work...

I was heading to Saratoga NY from York PA to see my wife (girlfriend at the time) I owned a 2001 ZX6R. I was cruising at just under 75mph threw the Pocono's Mts on interstate 81 when a tractor trailer blew past me. I figured what better way to make time than pick up the back of him. All threw the Pocono's we were running 95-100mph until the highway split in to I75 east and I88 east the tractor trailer headed on I75 and I took I88. Not paying attention I was still rolling the same speed for about 5 minutes after leaving the tail of the truck. When I took a look in my mirror I saw a State Trooper on my arse with his lights on. I looked down and the speedo and it was just over 100mph in a 65 zone. I was like crap I never pulled over so quick before in my life. I got off the bike unstrapped my bags and got my insurance, license and registration out and in hand ready to give to the Trooper. Holding the paper work made me remember my bike was not inspected so I was thinking not only was I running 40mph over my bike is not legal without the inspection. So standing there starting to sweat on a 50 degree early evening in September the Trooper comes up with flash light in hand and ask... Where are you heading? I tell him upstate NY. He ask What's in NY? I tell him I'm going to see my girlfriend. While he asking all this he is shining his light on my bike but he never checked my inspection sticker. After the questions. He asked me for my license only and tells me hold tight for a couple minutes. I'm standing there listening to him call in my info. Not long after I here the dispatcher come back with that is a negative. He come back hands me my license and says... Do me a favor? Slow down there are a lot of deer around here at this time I do not want to clean you off the road. I tell him you got it sir and thank you! He heads back to his cruiser and starts to leave and just as he pulls on to the highway he hit the lights puts his foot into it and tares off and does a U turn on the median to head west when he floors it a few seconds later a deer darts out of the tree line and the cop misses it be inches. That woke my a** up. Come to find out that day the state police were chasing a guy on a motorcycle that ending in a crash with the guy in critical condition. I could only figure he lost the cops for a moment and this cop tailed me because I fit the description of the other biker.

ZERO @ 39......I did spend a couple days in the slammer and have a Reckless driving charge pending though. It's a trumped up charge from a lazy *** crooked DPS officer. It happened Jan 11 and he still hasn't filed anything and won't respond to my lawyer about releasing the video. I could throw in the fact that I was driving with my valet key that won't let me go over 80 MPH since he claimed I was going 91 with no radar proof.

I've had 4 or 5 in my life, only ever 1 for points and that was complete garbage. I was at BUSY intersection, like gas stations on 2 corners, shopping center on one and bank on the other. I'm rolling up to the stop and as I go by a school bus in the right lane his lights go on and the stop sign comes out. Cop is right there and pulls me over, threatens to tow the car/5 point offense etc... etc... Try to explain that I was literally passing the nose of the bus when his lights turned on and there is no way this is a bus stop. I would never, NEVER drive around a stopped bus with lights on but I'm not sure what I was supposed to do in that situation.

Had to go to court and everything and explained to the judge where it happened and what the situation was. The cop was there and suggested I get the 5 points, the judge knocked it down to 2 and a fine.

I did once inadvertently get away from a cop though. I was in my CSVT doing 60 in a 45 on a country back road. Cop goes by in the other lane and does the old hit the brakes and start to turn around thing. Well I have already gone around a corner at this point and my turn is right around the corner. I turn and am doing the speed limit waiting for him to come up behind me and pull me over. I see him blow by the turn in my rearview and keep going. Oh well I guess? I just kept going doing the speed limit and he never found me. Suppose that makes up for the first ticket a bit lol.
