Got me a stinker of a ticket

Well i got busted 72 in a 35. Cop said i lied to him so he wouldnt give me a break. The last time i looked at the speedo was 45 so thats what i told him lol, guess i shouldnt be watching the boost guage during 5th gear pulls. OH well if i lose my license im gonna cry, and i guess its a mondatory court appearance. And no dont lecture me on the dangers of speeding, i know full well.

Oh gees that sucks. At least you weren't arrested. I was reading a post here recently where someone in FL was arrested and spend a decent amount of time in a holding cell. Hope the court apperance isn't too painful.

Re: Got me a stinker of a ticket

Oh wow, 72 in a 35? Damn LOL! Its ok, I had got busted doing 81 or 87 in a 55. Cop just kept telling me that he couldn't believe I was going that fast in a 55, that's just way too fast. I told him,"I know, got myself stuck in the fast lane following the flow of traffic, got side tracked."

Re: Got me a stinker of a ticket

I was doing like 90 in a 35 one time got a ticket that told me to appear in court and the cop never showed. I wonder how bad it would have been if he did show up though.

Re: Got me a stinker of a ticket

Get a radar...and yeah I know people will say shit about a radar giving you a free pass to speed, but having just got this car I find it VERY EASY to lose track of how fast you are going especially if this is the first turbo car you've had. And then people will say "look at your speedo" well if I stared at my speedo the whole damn time I'd definately get in an accident. It would be nice to have a heads up display like a vette but i'll take a radar detector for those times when I get caught off guard.

Fem: Stevens Creek. The road that i hate the most.
Everyone else: thanks for your kind words, it sucks but its part of getting closer to 30 years old i guess. And as soon as i saw him i was on my brakes, sucks for me i guess.
