yeah, I have. The bad thing is, it was my dad who pulled me over. He got me going 58 in a 40. He left me go but he was really furious with me.

Default not me, but...

...the wife did, driving my car, amusingly enough.

Tooling along I-80 in the middle-of-nowhere, PA, I was half asleep, as it was like 7.30am. Pop up over a rise, see cop :o: , stand on brakes, still get nailed. Clocked at 82 in a 65, but as it was blatantly a BS revenue ticket (we're not going to fight a ticket 3.5 hours drive away), he wrote it as 75. Still, the ticket was >$100
She thinks it was mainly cos the car rides so smooth that she didn't even notice she was doing 80

Me, I've been lucky. Regularly zoom along the 50-55 highway near me at 70, but see the cops sitting on the shoulder just in time to slow down sharp like. Stupid road is just a collection of speed traps joined with asphalt, so rarely get to open her up. But hot damn, she really really pulls off the line...

i got nailed doing 86 in 70 by a Tennessee State Trooper the other day while driving my VUE. He did not care that I was a Juvenile Probation Officer for the State of Tennesse. (Most local law enforcement would have cut me a break.) He also didn't care that I was going with the flow of traffic. He basically told me that he happen to look up and visual saw me go by and therefore picked me.
The only good thing from this situation is that the fact that I have a "clean" driving record and this is my first offense in the town he pulled me over, I should be able to go to traffic school instead of going to court and keep this one off my record.
I do have a question for the members of law enforement on this board. When a series of cars drive by exceding the speed limit and are not violating other traffic laws (i.e. weaving in and out of traffic or following to close) who do you choose to pull over. Do you ever pick out the junky cars, expensive cars, or pimped out cars?

Fortunately no tickets in 4+ years. It's not that I always drive the speed limit...I just pay attention! Also, I think my gold SL-2 just doesn't "look" like a speeding car. Besides, with all the freaking SUV's out there, it's easy to catch a radar shield :-)

I was doing 98 in a 65 at night, i saw the cop flip on his lights and cross the median, so i switched of my fog lights and ducked in between two semis and slowed way down. By the time he caught up and he passed me by looking for some sucker with four sets of lights not just two, i quickly excited the highway and that was a close as i have come to getting a ticket ever.

Yeah yeah i know this is kind of a dead post but i got to tell a store... a rather funny yet stupid story...

To answer the question Yes 4 tickets....

#1) friday night, little wet out.... pulled over doing 103 in a 45 + drag racing (yes i won ahha) [sl2 92]

#2) 31 in a 25 on private property.... yeah what bull... it was at my school...[92 sl2]

#3) Unsafe acceleration and 79 in a 45. Once again drag racing [sl2 01]

#4) Now this is the best one. and well i got to tell the story behind it to... I live in Chicago and myself along with some of my friends wanted to go up to canada.... to... not drink.... okay fine it was basicly a drinking trip and its legal to drink there ate the age of 19, still some of us were under that age. Well anyways on the way home i was doing about 90 and decided "hell its an open road and why not stomp on it" ehh what a mistake that was, came over a hill and i was like wow if i was a cop i would be sitting right there... and sure as hell there was one... Ticket was for 182 kph. Well that is basicly 115 in a 55.... In canada that is a feloney speeding ticket. Well it was about 1/4 mile from the us border. The cop handed me the ticket and told me i would need to return for court i laughed at him and told him i was not going to come back nor was i going to pay the ticket. He then took the ticket back from and and asked "Well what would a reasonable ticket be back in the states" I laughed and i was like "50 bucks?" he wrote me a ticket for 25kph or something like that... it was 115 CAD. Buuuuut i decided not to pay it. About 4 months later they sent me a letter asking "Please pay your fines we need the money to pay for our highways and workers" and well went on like that. So i payed them....

Anyways im done.

Nope. The little red wagon slips blissfully "under the radar". I saw an officer while doing 90. Either the car has a cloaking device or he was fishing in the box for a donut.

Viva la Saturna!

I've had a few, but for most of them I accepted my guilt.

The only one that really ticked me off was for going 80 in a 65 zone. The annoying thing was that I was in the left lane passing at about 75, and the cop pulled behind me in a very stealthily marked car (lights inside, no markings visible from the front). He basically tailgaited me until I sped up to pass more quickly (to let him pass me). Then he pulled me over! He was a real @#!$ too.

Within one week of getting my 1995 SC2, 75 in a 55 zone. When the policeman was writing the ticket he keep telling how much liked the car and keep asking me questions about it.

The last thing he told me when he left was that he loved the interior.
