Re: speeding tickets?

I don't drive a 3 (the Lounge isn't a MZ3 only forum), but I've gotten zero speeding tickets in 16 years of driving. I don't drive like a grandpa, either.

I still don't understand why so many people average one or more citations per year. Unless you just have awful vision (which if you do, you shouldn't be driving anyways), you should be able to see cops a long ways off or at least recognize prime speed trap positions.
