The unthinkable.. Subtitled: those a-holes...

<font face="Comic Sans MS">Well guys, the unthinkable has happened... Yup, my 6 year long flawless driving record has been marred by some a-hole cop... I've never been pulled over even once for anything nor ever suspected of everything. So today when I was accidentally doing 55 in a 45 (that was very poorly marked as a 45) I got pulled over. I was very polite to the guy. He claimed I was doing 63. He was gracious enough to write me up for 55 in a 45 but I mean 6 frickin' years of driving with no prior times of being pulled over, etc I think that deserves a warning as a first frickin' offense... That [email protected]#%d... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img] I'm a better driver than him anyway.. To add insult to the ticket the freak pulled a U turn before he pulled me over (without his flashers on, which is a dangerous maneuver) and he did the same damn thing after he got done, plus he failed to use his turn signal... Don't these a-holes have to answer to the frickin' law themselves??? I was going to request that he give me his ticket book so I could write him up for a few moving violations, but I didn't want to get some sort of felony charges against me...

well you've gotten away with it long enough anyway, so now just make sure it doesn't stick to your record, and go peel off some rubber in front of the piggly wiggly, they always love that. and remember practice makes perfect.

Re: The unthinkable.. Subtitled: those a-holes...

Sorry to hear that man! I should have been the one to receive the ticket! Yesterday I was returning from a Motorcycle trip and I got passed by some dude in a New Porsche Carrera C4, I was doing about 95 and this guy blows by me! Well being the nice sportbike rider I am, I had to play so I dropped it into 3rd and took off, in a couple of seconds I blew by him at about 130, and then just over a hill I spotted Mr. Lawman, luckily he did not radar us, and we were able to slow down in time! Well shortly after that the Porsche passes me again and takes off, and so did I! A few seconds later I blow by him at around an indicated 160 and see a rather sharp turn coming up, I took the turn at about 115, thinking the Porsche could easily take it at that well, he slowed down real quick! HA,HA I Win!! My $7000 bike kicked a $100,000 cars ass!!!

I know this has nothing to do with off roading but I did see a nice 4x4 along the way!

Re: The unthinkable.. Subtitled: those a-holes...

The big tickets are the ones that really suck. I had a 94 in a 55 I got on my Ninja when I was 19. Lucky for me it only cost 185 bucks and no jail time/liscence suspension/bike impound or any other nasty things.

Re: The unthinkable.. Subtitled: those a-holes...

damn man, only $185 for 94mph??? when i was 17 (in my red monte carlo ss!) a highway patrolman caught me at 78 in a 55 and it cost me $188 plus going to traffic school. first time i had gotten pulled over too! luckily thats my only ticket though. i know all the cops around my town but this was over in the next town. they can be dicks sometimes though - i know a girl who got a ticket for 32 in a 30 zone!! i woulda done something to go to jail if a cop tried that with me. anyways - i too should have way more tix but ive gotten lucky. sorry bout no more perfect record tim!
