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.
