Got a Speeding Ticket Today :(

I usually avoid the highway as much as I can. Due to: tolls, bugs hitting my car and splattering all over the place and COPS. I usually take the side roads and make it there in approx. the same time.

However today I couldnt afford to be late to work because of a meeting with someone high up. So I took the highway so I could go faster. Mistake. I fucking sensed it that I was going to get pulled over. But I was in too much of a hurry to watch my surroundings. So I'm going at 90. And I'm in the middle road, put my turn signal to move to the left and pass the truck in front of me when I look at my rearview mirror and see flashing lights... Crap.

So I get no compassion at all. I stopped, started getting my papers together. He asks for my insurance, license and registration. I give it to him and he's like... "any reason you're going 90 in a 65 mile an hour zone?" I'm like... "Im late for work officer" he's like "well you're going to be later if you get pulled over for speeding aintcha". Guess so, dick.

End up with a ticket for 205.50. With the option to pay for it and take 4 points of my license, pay for 178, take traffic school (usually $30-40) and get taken 3 points out of my license or fight it.

I'm calling the a traffic attorney. One of those (no points off or no charge) type of deals. Anyone tried them?


By the way, I'm not bitching, I was speeding, I got caught. *shrugs* I'm going to have to pay -money that I dont have- for it. So be it.


Disclaimer: If youre such an (__o__) that you feel the need to tell me that I deserved it, you hereby agree than you will blow me.

Re: Got a Speeding Ticket Today :(

Well since lately I've been having some strange tendencies.....YOU DESERVED IT!

Just kidding I fucking hate getting pulled over. I think the United States needs to revoke all its speeding laws and just pull over the dumb shits who go too slow in the left lane and don't signal. It's ok to weave in and out of traffic if you signal first (I'm being totally serious).

Re: Got a Speeding Ticket Today :(

I got a ticket for running a red light in downtown Dallas and it was yellow. I never run red lights, especially in places like downtown Dallas. I paid $55 for an attorney, ended up going to court and the whole thing was dismissed because the cop didn't show up. That seems to be the case with a lot of people who get traffic attorneys. Cops don't bother showing up because that's time taken out of their ticket-writing time. Gotta meet those quotas, right?

Good luck with it!

If you're not outraged, you're NOT PAYING ATTENTION!!!

Re: Got a Speeding Ticket Today :(

Ok let me get this straight....You admit to speeding. You admit to doing 90MPH in a 65MPH zone. Thats 25MPH over the limit. Its considered reckless driving and is a offence punishable with JAIL TIME. And you post it on a internet forum and think a childish line about a nonexistant blowjob is going to stop you from being flamed???
You sir are a moron... You did not get what you deserved...You should have gotten a reckless ticket and a manditory court date. You sir are also a danger not only to your self but others around you.. Hopefully you will be a part of the Darwin awards in the near future......
To put it kindly slow down my friend youll live longer and so will we.....

Sad to hear it.

I hate to say, but i agree. Risking your own life is one thing while speeding, but speeding on a highway with other traffic is totally reckless and endangering other drivers and possible pedestrians if any. Sarcasm or not the above quote is fairly accurate. Harsh, but accurate.
