Speeding Ticket!

Yesterday after leaving work I was clocked doing 67 in a 45.. Cop takes my license back to the cruiser. Then he comes back and says, "keep it closer to the speed limit and thanks for letting me look inside the car." NO TICKET! Woo Hoo!

That was nice of the MAN. The break of a life time. 22 over would have been costly.

Heh heh I got the same ticket and it cost me $245 and since I went to court to pay it they knocked off the points because I have not had a ticket in 20 years, even though I had to pay it is like it never happened on my record since they didn't record it on my record.

Same with me, Went to court and 91 in a 65 was reduced to a seat belt violation- 0 points. Never just pay the fine, you can probably get it reduced.

I too, was a lucky dog. Returning from Daytona, I passed a PU that was driving somewhat erratically, and speed up-slow down. The Sheriff got us both.

I could not find my insurance card, to add to my problems. After a fashion, I rooted thru the glove box and located it, about the time the deputy returned.

He sez, You can show me the card, and I will change the ticket from "no insurance" ($10) to speeding, ($159), if you wish.. The fellow in the PU is not so lucky, I am taking him to jail, no D/L, etc.

I donno if God drives a Camaro, but He does not drive a Ford PU, with a PR flag hanging from the rear view mirror.....

Agreed. That can't be 35 points, because then the state would have sent someone to your house to personally rip up your license, all the while laughing at you. Then, they would have b--ch slapped you for such a terrible crime. LOL. However, I guess it would have taken the next 100 years to get rid of those points. Or you could have just done cleanup on the thruway in those orange jumpsuits for the next 75 years.

Good lord, 180 is a break.

Ny

10 = $300
20 and higher forget it.

I had a 91 in a 55 wayy back, paid $600 + $55 court charge, then the DMV fines you an additional $300 for having points on your license.

Yea unfortunately you have to display the card on demand on the first approach so he really wasn't hosing you.... on top of that giving the $10 break is pretty nice in FL.

Well then.....I can do nothing but pray for you. People in FL b--ch about a $50 fix it ticket with no points. Isn't Virginia the state that slaps $1000 fines on their residents for 20+

2 cops!

Hah, I had the same thing happen to me. Noticed 2 cops on the opposite lane, but I guess it was too late doing 53 on a 35. They uturned and followed me, so here I have 2 cops chasing me... I pull over - both guys come up and the first thing he says is beautiful ride man. Continued to ask me questions about the car - turns out he was about to retire and wanted one for himself. Got off with a warning. I was a happy panda.

I recently got a ticket for 36 in a 25 (half a block past where the limit changed and I was slowing), saw the judge and got six months probation and $48.00 fine. No points.

Jeezz guys.....i cant believe how many of you have been let off or got ur ticket reduced lol, yall must live in small towns where the cop probably has never seen a camaro and just pulled you over to admire the car. I wish cops in bigger cities weren't such a-holes. I havent been pulled over yet (in the camaro at least) but did get the satisfaction of peeling out beside a cruiser as i entered the on ramp of a highways as he went a different direction.

DUDES----- while visiting in Fl. got pulled over on IH 75 doing 95 in a 70--

I had just punch it while I was cruising at 75mph to get this guy that was riding
my ass disappear when the law came over the hill ( coming towards me ) and caught
me--

His lights came on and I knew I had just got FRIED---

I pulled over with my hazard lights on and waited about 3-4 minutes ( seem like a long
time ) when he drove up behind me and came to my side of the car and said " you know
better than that "-- I said - yes sir - Then he said " At least I didn't have to chase
you " "You got a nice ride " I said Thank you -- thinking i'm gonna get out of this--
"NOT"

He took my drivers lic /Ins and came back and said I'm going to give a ticket doing
85 in a 70 I'll save you some $$$ but SLOW IT DOWN -- I said THANK YOU --

Cost me $260.82 --

I now have a Valentine One Radar and haven't had a ticket since----

Cop saw me come around this turn pretty fast, then I went around another curve out of his sight. He tried to say I was doing 60mph in the 45mph zone. I drive that road all the time and admit I came around the turn fast, but then cruised till he caught up to me from the light he was at. He let me off with a warning.
