Well I got ticket, went to court..................


OK so i got a speeding ticket!! Well the story goes that I was on my way to work on a morning in January in my brand new car( still had paper tag) and I see a cop in my rearview. He was almost half a mile behind me on the four lane highway that I take to work every morning. This cop is flying so I get over in the right lane thinking that he would blow right by me.....WRONG he jumps over behind me and turns on the lights. I pull over and he says that I was going 90 Mph in a 65 Mph zone!! Thats right 25 MPH over!! So me being the nice guy that I am I took the ticket and went on to work. I later called to find out about the fine and they said it would be $350.00

Then i noticed that he did not clock me with a radar, he didnt clock me with a laser... This pig claimed to pace me with his patrol car!!! I thoought to myself , no wonder i was in shock of getting pulled over. After that little discovery i decided to take it to court to fight the fact that i was driving so fast. Well I drag my ass up at 6am to get to court at 9am. At 9 the court started and they called my name ... I got up and approached the stand. Then I look around and the cop was no where to be found!! He did not even come to court! The judge was like "why giva court date and not show?" So just when I think it will get thrown out ...another cop says he was gonna call him!! The judge had me sit and wait till last and the cop finnaly showed up. I wanted to say "if you cant get here on time just get here when you can!!" But I didnt. The fine was cut to $100.00 based on the situation. But I think its kinda shitty that I had to be there on time and he gets the luxury to just come when he wants to. Next time I have to go to court I think I will wait for someone to call me to remind me that I have to be there!!!...............YEAH RIGHT!!!!!!!!!

No I was only going 75. I know I was still speeding but there is a huge difference in 10 over and 25 over!!

That sucks. In 65 zones here, people usually do 80-85 without any problems.

well then that's some bullshit. good thing you went to court, and good thing the cop was an idiot.

10 over is still speeding, but COME ON! were you the only car on the road or weaving in traffic or something? Must have been one bored cop.

Yes I was the only car on the road and I guess he just had to have some tickets to fill his quota for the month. Did I mention that I hadnt had the less than a week when this happened?

In the state of Maryland cops do not have quotas to meet, its a myth.
