Parked outside my apartment. Total bullshit, cop had to stare at the tiny sticker to see it. It's an out of state plate and the color is the same every year

Lame fucking ticket...I'm sure you could do a lot better if you wanted to.. :evildude:

80 in a 35?  That's a little crazy even for you.  What kind of road was it?

How are you going to deal with the ticket?  Will you go to court, or just mail in a check?  What do you suppose the damage from this one will be?

I've always considered speeding fines to be money well spent.  I love moving that speedo needle well to the right.  :evildude:

I always plead Not Guilty at the Clerk Of Courts a few days before mu court date. Then the court will mail me a date to return to court. I do that because I'll get a different date than if i'd actually plead not guilty on my assigned court date. Then hopefully the officer won't show up on my new court date and the ticket will be thrown out! But if he does the prosecutor will usually charge you with unsafe vehicle if you tell them you drive for a living. That way no points are assigned. Usually this cost $150-$200!

Not a bad outcome.   Do they give you a volume discount on the fines?   :devil:

I had a similar outcome with my last ticket, by a different route.  I got nailed for 79 in a 55 zone, but the trooper apparently thought I was a good guy because he wrote me up for only 65 mph.  Had he put the original speed, I would have been fined $300-400 plus I would have been assessed about $200 per year for excessive points for the next 3 years.  But with the lower speed, I was fined $185 and since the ticket was out of state, it didn't show up on my home state license.  I didn't bother taking it to court because the trooper had already lowered the speed and I wasn't getting any points anyway, so I didn't think it worth the trouble of going to court (about an hour from my house) to try to get a marginally better outcome.

A guy I ride the train with got nailed for a similar speed in the same state, but he was written up for his full speed and got hit with that much heavier fine plus the excessive point charges for 3 years.  He just paid it without realizing all the extra charges he would be hit with.  More recently, he got nailed again in the same state, but this time the cop lowered his speed, so he had an outcome similar to mine on his second ticket.

Part of me was disappointed not to go to court.  Last time I went, I found it pretty amusing.  I guess my attitude really sucks - I just don't take this stuff seriously.  Even if I had gotten hit with the full load on my last ticket, it would have no effect on my future driving.  I am going to keep speeding no matter what.  :devil:

Possibly useful when gauging my margins of illegality...
CR-V's speedometer is accurate - at least judging by an app on my phone.  Wonder if the CR-V uses GPS.
The Infiniti's speedometer reads 2-3 mph over reality.

Do you have a hard limit on how much you will exceed the speed limit by?

9 mph.
People round here regularly get nailed for going 15 over.
Occasionally I let the Infiniti pick up her skirts and run well over that. But the revenue gatherers seem to have become more diligent these days; they've started operating in teams.

I get real antsy if I go over 85 mph on any highway. Growing up in the lates 70s, 80s, and 90s almost all the cars we had had a speedometer that maxed out at 85 mph.  Iím subconsciously conditioned to think of that number as the event horizon surrounding a black hole.

One more ticket and I get my license suspended so I've been driving like a real granny (I got an 87/50 in NYC where they do not knock tickets down; I was impatient, right by home, went for an aggressive pass, officer bob was waiting for me. Not a proud moment)



Actually I had a bit of a scare a few months ago on my way back from a residency interview- got popped doing 80 in a 65 (I didn't even think I was going that fast) in some podunk county in upstate NY. Got a lawyer, fortunately got it down to a parking ticket. That could've been baaaaaaad
