Ahh expensive conversations

I had a $270 conversation with a Massachusetts State Trooper on Friday.

72 in a 45 (That's MPH, people).

He caught me on a 2 lane road (one lane going each way) in a passing zone when I was passing another car.

Kinda pissed about that. Really didn't feel like sitting in the opposite lane longer than necessary, hence why one would go fast. You all know what I mean.

Ugh. Definitly fighting this one.

If you've got more than a single speeding ticket before may I suggest getting a radar detector? They make back the money in about a month lol.

They're not full proof but a good early warning system.

I had a radar detector. I got my second ticket just a few weeks after getting it. Haven't bothered to use it much since then.

But yeah, I'm thinking about getting a new one.

Ouch! You had to go above the limit to pass - duh!

At least you guys can use radar detectors. They're illegal in Ontario.

They are illegal in Canada... They don't want us to detect them before they catch us cause they'll lose money...!

Ain't that some BS. If they would just pay these cops more money we probaly wouldn't have these high (give me your paycheck) fines.

Huh? The more we pay cops, the more they'd NEED those high fines.

And even if they decide to pay cops more, it's coming out of your taxes anyway =P
