Thumbs down So it finally happened!!!

I got my first speeding ticket in my camaro after 2 years of owning it. Funny thing is i have past many cops over the speed limit by alot and never seen those lights turn on, but this guy must of been in a bad mood . The only thing is i was only going 4 mph faster than the limit, but i guess he did not like that I'm the only one who was not afraid to pass him over.

Update: Cop was going below speed limit checking another car in front of him, and i'm not worried about the ticket i can get off of it. Ticket only shows going 64 mph on a 60, guy did not like me passing him like many others on the road.

Not the smartest thing to do why risk it? I can see if he was going under the speed limit to pass him. I think that would have been my excuse. If he would have pulled me over, I would have told him according to my speedo I was doing the speed limit. I'm sure you're going to contest it.

I don't blame you...I would take my chances every time passing a state trooper 4 mph over. Bad luck.

You know guys its not that i got balls or anything like that, but it is hard to stay at a constant speed and more speed limit when nobody drives it and then i live in a big city i don't have the option of setting cruise control to avoid things. Also i don't have the digital speedometer on but my gas range, so i ball park it.

sorry to say dude but that is just asking for it like said above. Passing a cop when he's at the speed limit, in a red Camaro, seems like that is just a no brainer he would pull you over. I've passed cops while I was doing the speed limit and he was under before and I was even worried then haha. Did he write the actual ticket for exactly 4 over? I would assume you might be able to get outta stuff if you really wanted, but passing a cop while he's going the speed limit is a bold strategy, I know alot of people who have fought 3-4 mph tickets and won easily but idk how it is where you are.

I pass cops no matter where I am 4- 7 mph over the limit. Just hard 2 believe the cop was going that slow. Must have been on overtime. LOL

Good luck with the ticket. Same thing happened to me once. I just told the truth...I was in a hurry, I just robbed a bank! LoL! No seriously, I just told the cop when I last looked at my speedometer, I was below the limit. No ticket issued.

Sometimes an LEO is going under the limit.

There is a reason for that. Just get in line.

Idk, I've passed cops going at or under the limit multiple times, haven't had any issues, this is never going more than 5 mph over but hey, that mirrors the 4 mph you were going...

Maybe the cops I've passed were off duty or were simply out of their jurisdiction. But I will keep this in mind for the future, hadn't heard of something like this happening....

I was in that situation about a week ago , Out in the country and a Sheriff was ahead of me doing 45 in a 55 , No way was I going to pass him ,so the next road I took a left and that was the end of my temptation to pass him . Or if I am on the highway I will just take the next exit and have a smoke ( I do not smoke in my car) ,
