I've gotten the only two tickets in my life exactly two weeks after getting a new Saturn. First one clocked me at 90 in a 65. He was very generous. He pulled me over and spent 30 minutes asking me all about my new SC2. He said since I was obviously just "getting a feel for my new car" that he couldn't fault me too bad and put down that I was going 74. Nice guy.

The second time was when I was driving to work on a Sunday morning on an 8-lane interstate and legitimately didn't realize how fast I was going in my new L300. Cop was nice and said he clocked me at 74 again even though I was going 90 or higher.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Of course I've been caught. I had a cop chase me for 15 miles with lights on but no siren. he said i was doing 97 in a 55 and 105 in a 65. He had been following me since i left work i just never noticed him till i was getting on the hiway and looked back to see if anyone was coming. He let me go because I knew him but said to slow the ******* down before I kill someone. Its nice to become friends with your local pd. LOL

I got a ticket for going 72 in a 65 on interstate 85! It was May of 1995 and I had just purchased my 1994 SC2. As the officer handed me my ticket, he did tell me I had a good-looking car

I lost my license twice for 30 days due to speeding in my '97 SL1. Little nitpicky, quota-reaching MA staties can **#*@#*@#**@*!! Anyway, I have been fortunate with my Ion 2. I set the cruise to 75 in a 65 zone, open the sunroof, and just enjoy the ride. In a 55 zone, I'll set it at 60-65. At times, though, I have gone up to 80-85 in a 65 zone- I didn't want to get trampled in the Highway Jungle!

#1 45 in a 30 -- Traffic school, no damage to record. $150 later.

#2 "unsafe lane change" across six lanes of traffic, no proof of insurance in vehicle, and no registration in vehicle. I go to court in february. I'm gonna win. Mainly because... why would I get in the carpool lane @ 7:30 on a sunday night, when my exit is only 1.4 miles away from where I got on the freeway. Insurance and reg. we're in another car, at the time. We'll see how it turns out. If I don't, this is going to be almost $500 dollars -- just for the lane change, w/o insurance and registration, it would've been almost $1200. Yikes!

The most memorable stop was in, of course, my SL2. After the cop had me sign the citation, he stepped back and looked over my car and said, "This is a real nice car, do you like it?"..... seeing that I had nothing else to lose, I replied, "yeah, it's pretty fast."
You said WHAT to a cop that just gave you a speeding ticket?!? Man, I I said anything like that any of the many times I got pulled over, I wuld have been hauled to jail for public endangement!

I also have had my license suspended twice. Once for a month and the other for 6 mos. I am currently riding out that sentence. I wont get it back untill March. I'm 18 and was planning on moving out soon, but thats out of the question now. My Parents take me everywhere.
I drive a '96 SL-1 5-speed, new exaust(?). Just adding that performance part has increased my HP enough that I can leave smoke and black marks. Thats good for my car. It never did that before.

I have been pulled over in my 95 sl1 I was in a speed trap and the officer lowered the fine for me and I took the class to keep the points off. Then a few months later after I gave it to my wife so I could get my Ion 3 Iwas pulled over in another speed trap doing 57 in a 45 I wanted to tell him I was doing a good 80 when I satrted to slow down before they got me. I was lucky he let me off with a warning.

125 mph on I-25 between Walsenburg and Pueblo, Colorado on Thanksgiving morning. The state trooper only gave me a verbal warning (I think because I was the only vehicle on the highway at that time)!!

Lets see...

94 mph in a 55
77 mph in a 55
75 mph in a 55

I got 94 reduced to 80-something otherwise I would have lost my license on the spot.

77 mph I paid and let go. Its the first ticket I ever got in PA.

75 mph in a 55 I had reduced to 60 in a 55 - fine but no points.

I've also been to traffic "school" after I had accumulated 6 points.

I haven't gotten a ticket in a while so I think I have lost some points. I was at a point for a while where one more ticket=suspended license.
