Had Camaro three weeks, got first ticket

I am really annoyed right now. I haven't had a ticket in over 3.5 years and three weeks into owning a Camaro I got nailed for speeding (80km/h in a 50 but cop made it a 100km/h in an 80). So instead of getting nailed with a $220 ticket I got handed a $95 ticket and 3 demerit points. What worries me now is summer hasn't even begun and that was my "free pass" in that cops will not give me a break if I get nabbed for speeding again.

It's my own damn fault for coming out of work like a bat out of hell but I am still driving my old four banger around and constantly switching between the two cars is brutal because one takes forever to accelerate while the Camaro hits 50km in about a second :P.

Anyway, does anyone else have any ticket stories they care to share from their Camaro so I don't feel so bad?

I got a ticket in the first hour driving mine.. Last year..

So I primarily race mine on racetracks now...
and drive it limited use on the streets.
That way I can drive it like I stole it... all the time.

Err sorry, London ONTARIO. Perhaps I should clarify that in my profile. Either way, the chicks still dig the car .

I'm not a speed demon by any sorts... But there's just something about four hundred horses strapped to your butt that can't help but make you speed

You just have to know when to run the horses and when to rein them in. It is sooooooooooooo hard sometimes.

I went over 5 years of driving without getting pulled over once. In the 4 weeks I've had my Camaro I've been pulled over twice. The first time was a 58 in a 45 without me even knowing it but I got off clean. The second time was on Valentine's day and got busted doing 86 in a 65. :( But the cop gave me a break since it was my first ticket and only wrote me up as doing 9 over. Saved me 125 bucks and 1 point on my license.
