After you get your ticket just smile and wave good bye.

The cop didnt make you speed, and get a $200 ticket. You broke the law, you pay the fine. Its not a cops fault for catching you doing something wrong. its your fault. Take responsibility for your actions, just like the guy who started this thread.

Right on, RubyCamaro! Couldn't agree more.

Didn't know we have a "speed chime," is that part of the stadard Camaro gauges? I'm getting the 2SS so hope I'll have it.

Going slower makes drivers mad & can also trigger them to make bad decisions causing accidents. I actually like to see speed traps set up. It helps keep us all safer.

Weird but good story- I got stopped by a state sheriff and was told I was getting two tickets for speeding 9 miles over and no front plates. I'm more of a passive person so I was like cool no problem. What could I say I was wrong and that's that. So when he came back over he avoided eye contact and told me he was letting me go on a warning! He didn't give a reason but I sure as he'll wasn't going to ask why. So I shook his hand and said thanks and be careful. Strange that he didn't look me in the face when moments ago he was stairing at me normal.

I wasn't there and don't mean to be disrespectful..but honestly, man...unless she sped up to 40 mph over the speed limit (which those crown vics will not do at a drop of a dime...in fact, it takes about 15 minutes to get that fast), I don't see how in the world it would have made a difference and I don't see how it would have influenced your decision to proceed.

All so often we get crashes because people see the signal turn "yellow" and assume people will be stopping..Can you hoenstly say this wasn't the case? Based on what you said, that is what it sounds like to me. You assumed everyone would be stopping for the yellow and you wanted to get on your way. You don't seem to be debating her light was still yellow/green and she was speeding to make it? Again, not trying to be rude..just honest. Unless there is proof she failed to stop for a RED traffic signal, you still meet the requirements for failing to yield to oncoming traffic. I don't see you winning a case on that, but if she really was a b--- then I hope you do. Attitude isn't necessary...

I went to court plead guilty on my last ticket and the judge cut the fine and the points in half, pretty easy way to save money

Ms. Slush is by far more than a female..she has mind tricks. I highly recommend you avoid her at all costs...

Judge sees you are accepting responsibility for your actions... happens quite often. I have seen them wipe 200 dollars off a 400 dollar fine and clear all the points for people who came in ready to plea guilty but wanted to get community service hours instead.... depends on the judge though

I'd be polite and take responsibility, but I still wouldn't say thank you.

The easiest way to get out of a ticket in my town is to answer one question correctly. That question is "Where do you live?" If you live in the city limits you will likely get off. If you live outside the city limits you may as well get you check book out. My town was warned for giving too many warnings. They warnings were awarded disproportionately to people who reside in the city limits. You have to live inside the city limits to vote in the city.

How do I join the free masons? Can I drive one of those little cars?

The Shriners drive the little cars.
In order to join the Freemasons I believe you have to be sponsored by an existing member. Then you have to go through all these weird ritualistic initiation ceremonies with blindfolds and trowels and all this other weird symbolism relating to Hiram Abiff.
At least what what a friend of mine who's a Freemason told me....I may have already said too much...

We cite for traffic violations thats all, the insurance companies assess who is at fault and to what degree. If you were in the business you would be surprised even in the most obvious cases degrees of liability are spread out to each party.
I'm guessing you've never had a "bad day" at the plant? unless you have been in our shoes hold your judgements about our actions until you do. Just sayin'. Sorry if she wasn't all peaches and cream. To be honest I hate handling accidents with a passion except when it involves a drunk driver I guess-- (could have hit someone I love.) Everyones cars are wrecked and then by policy I have to issue a citation if someone committed a traffic violation-- I know it sux but its the job.
Well put, I am a cop also and any time you receive a citation its cause you deserved it. I don't know a single cop who wants to go to traffic court on their day off away from their families and Camaro because its a bullshit ticket, sack up is all I can say, if you can sit here and bitch n moan over how you were right and the cop was wrong than you have many more issues than your aware of....

He wasn't trying to say that. He just said he doesn't think 'Thank You' would be his response. I agree. Why would you say thank you? lol We all hope to get a break. And we ALL have taken them when offered. To say thank you at a ticket is just weird to me.

Doesn't mean I am complaining about the fine. Just ain't gonna say thanks. lol
