Speeding ticket

Got busted going 102 mph on a local hwy. Clear day, there was no other traffic, so I put my foot down. There was a sheriff sitting on a side road. As soon as i saw him I immediately slowed down and pulled over. I got lucky, he only cited me for speeding, $1100 fine. Ouch, but I didn't get arrested or get towed. That was just bad timing.

Owned. I got caught going 114 or something like that fine was 250. In New Mexico it is only a fine if it is on a rural road.

Lucky.....depending on where you are you'd have a 6 point reckless operation ticket and thus sky high insurance.

Re: Speeding ticket

100 in a 70 accused of stealing my car which is in my name. and tires that i had a reciept for that also had my name on it. accused of being drunk and i dont even drink. handcuffed and put in the back of a cop car. and then let go with just a speeding ticket. not to mention the cop conviently didnt give me my wallet back. so i had to find one of the cops that was out there. and he went and found it. and my debit card was missing but all of my cash was still in there. its getting fixed though.

the fine is 387.

Re: Speeding ticket

78 in a 40. I was going maybe 52 with a tail wind in a 40 at the time.

Still haven't gotten my court date. Sucks on the ticket, but hey at least you actually were going 102 and the cop didn't just make up a number that sounded good to him.

My ticket is $290 and 5 points. Damned if I am going to sit still and take that crap. If the judge pushes I will take the fine for 12 over and the points if the judge is going to force the issue (if I can't just get out of the whole damned thing), but there is no damned way I was going as fast as the cop claims. No one was and there were 5 cars around me, 1 immediately in from of me. I mean immediately and the road narrows from 2 to 1 lane there.

BS. At least I have a pretty damned good case.

Re: Speeding ticket

74 in a 45 work zone. Verbal warning only, didn't even run my info. Acted like an ass (I of course recognize I deserved it and more) and then said like a child that just lost an argument with his mother "well you'd better get going before a change my mind." I was left sitting there like WTF??
