2 Miracles! And now, a third.

I have had my car over a year now and I drive it daily. Just past 20,000 miles last week. It's a miracle that I have not got a ticket yet, and a miracle that I have not backed into anything or another car in all these miles.

Well, I did back it into the reataining wall near my Driveway once and screwed up the quarter panel. But that one does not count because I had an altercation with some parking A-Hole when leaving work and I was "drunk with emotion". I basically did not even look! Just backed up and was dumbfounded when the car stopped going backward. I did not even remember driving home.

Third miracle was I was driving home from work at 7AM this morning and was stopped by a California Highway Patrol on the freeway. He said I was clocked at doing 82, which was correct. Anyhow, since I was careful to pull over somewhere safe for him and I was honest and forthcoming, he let me off with a WARNING. He had me dead to rights at 82 and he basically gave me an early christmas present. I usually get pissed when I hear other people brag about getting off with a warning, but it does happen. I also feel bad for the others that say they have been hit with tickets for 2 or 3 miles over and lately I heard of 1 MPH over getting a ticket.

SHEESH, this car wants to go fast. It's so bloody easy!

I know the Chippys working that beat. I will have to give them this link! Just kidding. I am sure they already peruse Cam5 because they like going fast and nice cars too. By warning you he got more positive PR then by giving you a ticket! Look at how many people will read this. It isn't speed that kills. It is the sudden stop.
