I was stopped for doing 55 in a 40 zone on my way to work. The officer had me dead to rights. The fine was $75 and points and to make matters worse, my boss found out and wasn't too happy.

You should have had your license revoked. If anyone so irresponsible should hurt a family member of mine, you'd better be watching your back!

The poll said "caught speeding" then the topic said got a ticket. I have never recieved a ticket. However, I was pulled over about three years ago, a day before I began my employment at WPD...needless to say, I didn't get a ticket....I was very lucky. 60 in a 45.

I've only recieved one ticket, and that was when I was 17...I was going 85 in a 55 in my Maxima. Man, do I regret that one =)

$145.00 fine only, talked to the DA, she felt bad for me because I only had my license for a few months.

Nope, I haven't. Only time I speed is when it is unsafe to drive the limit due to faster traffic flow. Fortunately, that doesn't happen much where I drive.

80 in a 65. Took the "Driver Improvement" class. What a load of crap. VA has ultra conservative speed limits. Many roads here jump up 10 to 15mph when crossing into Maryland or WV.

Does anyone know the rules as far as a cop pulling you over in another state? When I was on a road trip a long time ago, my dad was cruising at around 120 in our Shelby Charger about 10 miles from the Kansass/Colorado Border. He said that if a cop saw him, he could outrun him to the border, and be fine.

Your Dad was wrong. The highway patrol WILL follow past a state line, AND notify the neighbouring state of the chase, involving them as well. When they catch you, you will have the number of charges doubled on you as both states pile them on. Had your Father been caught speeding like that, he would have spent a considerable amount of time in the greybar hotel.

Well i have been fortunate enough not to get caught, but it came close.
In KM/h, i was doing 170 in a 90 zone, 90 being the average highway limit in Quebec.

Lucky for me the cop was just backing into his hiding spot when i saw him so i had to stand on the brakes or i would have gotten slapped with a real ugly ticket.

Is it just in Quebec, or does it happen everywhere that cops hide with their radar guns?

I mean they actually hide, they are never out in open view like on the road side, always behind an overpass, behind a sign or on top of an overpass. Is this just Quebec, or everywhere?

I have been to the US several times and much of Canada but i never really noticed.

Someone enlighten me please

Here's a stupid person story for y'all:

A buddy of mine was driving an Eclipse and got pulled over in a small town on a two lane highway for going about 15 over the limit.

Speeding 15 over
No Insurance
Expired registration
Suspended license

The cop LET HIM GO!!! However... an hour later he got pulled over in ANOTHER town. Yep, speeding. This time he wasn't so lucky. Car impounded, no money to get it out, so the bank repo'd it.

You would think he would learn a lesson. Someone up above gave him a serious bit of grace and he blew it.

Default a canadian in michigan

I got two tickets in the highways around Detroit.
I'm a canadian, and cross the Detroit/Windsor border everyday to go to work on the US side.

I had been driving fast, 80/90 on 70mph highways for about two years before my first ticket. And I was actually coming from a bar, and I had a loud CD on and I think i was doing 90 in a 60. I was scared pretty bad. But I had only had two beers in 3 hours or so, the cop gave me the test, had me stand on one leg and all that, I told him to just go ahead and give me the breathalizer I knew I was under the legal limit. In the end the cop told me that out of the all the people he's pulled over and tested, that was the best anyone has ever done and gave me at ticket for 15 over.

The second time, it was a few months after this ticket, same highway, I'm driving slow and carefull now, but these guys are bugging me driving really slow in the left lane, so I am changing lanes a lot, and overtaking on the right also, but all the time keeping within a few mph of the speed limit. A cop pulled me over and gave me a ticket for doing 5 !! over.

I think that was an 85$ ticket. The 15 mph over was something like a 125$ ticket.


Btw. if you're courious, being a canadian and getting a ticket in the states, the cop asked me for 100$ cash as bond/proof that I would show up in court. He did not take credit cards. He would have accepted like a CAA/AAA card for example that can be used as bond up to $1000 dollars. Having neither, they take your drivers license and give you a receit. You get your drivers license back after you show up to pay your fine.. Also, I doubt that any points got transferred to the canadian side of the border, my insurance rate never went up.

I pushed my car to 95 but one of my friends was almost urinating inside my car so I had to slow down so he wouldn't....

One day coming home from school I hear a giant farting noise and in my mirror in the right lane (I was in the left lane) there's this civic with a body kit, dubs, and a big ugly wing. I drop to 3rd, nail it, and rocket my way away complete with wounded rear end (still not fixed since hit by '93 SC1 in oct '02), but I put it back into 5th and calm down back to the same speed as the car next to me so he couldn't pass. This really irratated him, and since I had to take a left at the next light, there was room for him to give me a 'flyby'. I wonder what that chinese lettering on his driver's door window means in English. Is that even legal?

I have a bunch of other stories, like how I beat a rather new yellow Integra "type R" with steelies, but despite seeing hoards of the fuzz, I never got stopped.

Yeah, for doing 92 in a 75 on I-10 outside of el paso. I was just following traffic...

Turns out the cop was sympathetic (we were coming home from a funeral) and let me off with a written warning.

I got a ticket for failing to reduce speed to avoid an accident. I was guilty of this seeing that I was following to closely to the Astro van in front of me while driving my mom's dustbuster (aka Lumina van). He had to make a sudden stop, and I ended up clipping him while trying to maneuver around him, since I didn't leave enough room to stop in time. To keep the ticket from staying on my record, Cook County allowed me to take a 4-hour driver safety course.

Lucky for me, I only had to spend two hours in the class. The electricity went out in the court house while I was attending class, so the rest of the class was cancelled and the ticket was removed from my record!

oh i forgot that 6 months after i got my license i was pulled for doing 50 in a 35 but the damned cop just gave me a ticket for following too close! the judge made me do 12 hrs of community service. whoopdido. never on my record either.

my best advice is to either spend around $40 to take an amateure radio to get a police scanner or get a cb radio and talk to the truckers
