Getting the first ticket in your ZL1

Everybody on this forum I know without a doubt is a responsible person when it comes to driving. But, with that said I also understand bad things happen to good people. So who's going to be the first to be pulled over by the blue force for letting our new baby play? With the HP this beast willl have it is going to get the best of somebody and MAKE them push the throttle down

Is this going to be like a lottery we all pitch in 10 bux and guess the last three of a vin number.

When it hits we give the "winner" 50% each?

everyone that wants to enter Mail me the ten Bux and I'll get this whole thing up and running.

well my first ticket in my Z06 was 118 slowing down from a 180something run ha ha so maybe I will shoot for like a 172 redline in 5th gear ticket ha ha.

It should be a contest like the super speeders video where the first forum member to post up a ticket in there ZL-1 wins the bet.

I know what you are saying, I "was" a good driver except for the first 2 months that I owned my Camaro. I got a ticket for 70 in a 55 (was clocked @ 79) and I too was "slowing down" from 145. Like they say, you feel like a 16 year old again when you take the wheel of one of these babies!!!

I'm betting more tickets happen in the lower mph range. Ya know, going 67 in a 50 cause you hadn't a clue you were moving so fast.

I vote for the person I don't know in this country to be the first to get a ticket in a ZL1.

But officer I just steped on the gas entering the highway like I did with my Honda civic. I can't help it if the civic reached 60 mph in ten seconds
and my ZL1 was clocked at 110 mph in 7 seconds

Needless to say it will take some time to get use to all this power, from what I have been driving the past few years.

Where I live, 25mph over the speed limit =
368.00 fine
368.00 onto your insurance as a "risk" penalty
7 day impound on the vehicle plus pay the tow and impound charges

2nd offence within 30 days...all fines double and 30 days car jail for the car.

over 20mph in VA is a class 1 criminal misdemeanor. penalties up to $1,000 or 1 year in JAIL.

I got a ticket on christmas morning (left my camaro at home) in my 2012 Scion xD release series. Now I have paid $300 to dyno my Scion for the lawyer that cost me $900. I haven't taken my driving class yet but that's another $300.

All that to try to get the charges reduced. I was only going 78 in a 55 at 8am on christmas morning.

I've said it once and I'll say it again - I've never met a cop I liked.

And if they catch you "street" racing another vehicle, it is automatic forfeiture.That means you have to buy your vehicle back at the auction...even if the bank has title to it! So if I buy your car at auction, the bank still comes after you for the balance owing. Last month they caught seven "recent arrivals to Canada" in high end German and Italian auto's street racing at speeds up to 150mph...all the cars went to auction.
