Well, yesterday i got stopped for going 80+ in a 65 and just barely avoided a ticket. Then later that day i got a parking ticket for parking in a spot that i didn't know was illegal.

He said he did not get a speeding ticket, almost did but skated buy that one. But a parking ticket is not a moving violation and should not go on your insurance.

80 in a 65 and avoided a ticket... Don't brag about being being stupid and not getting caught.

I think Jim's aware.... in the NJ/PA/NY area you get run off the road if you're not doing 78-80 in a 65

hell, last night i had to go well over a 100 to avoid getting ran off the road by a chevy pickup. it was an 80's dually and i was on the freeway and he came up behind me while i was going 75(the legal limit in utah), sped up until he was right on me, swung to the side of me, flipped me the finger and yelled at me, then swung in front of me and slammed his brakes. Luckily i hit mine too and swerved to the side of him and fscking shot out of there and put some miles between us.

ditto on the florida deal. Its stupid that the posted speed limit is only 50 like it is on a lot of I-4 which for those who dont know is a major road going through central florida. and do you think anyone does 50? aint happening...but anyways tickets suck. just got my first speeding ticket a couple weeks ago. expensive little boogers...

Yeah, that was a little uncalled for (was having a bad day), sorry dude... Put it like this... NEXT TIME you do 80 in a 65 (not that I'm telling you to or anything)... keep you damned eyes open, almost every ticket is avoidable if you pay attention.

I've never gotten one that I couldn't have avoided had I been paying more attention to the road ahead.

Yeah, i'm actually purdy good at keeping my eyes open and have always spotted cops before they spotted me, but this one was an unmarked sheriff's vehicle. Seems to be a growing trend. The sheriff's department in my county has stripped the decals off of all of their trucks and so now you will never spot them.

They all are those crown victorias.....well mostly, so there pretty easy to spot even at night. Even if its not a cop I slow down and wait till I can see the gov. plate on em....then speed off...
Again just keeping the eyes open.......Most of the time its the old folks/ mexicans in their black wanna be police cars.....(Im Mexican so its all good.....)

One of my buddies had a flashlight that had some kind of strobe in red and blue, he sits in the fast lane wile holding it in the front window and people move like crazy....its awesome.


I hate those crown vics that random people buy....it slows traffic down
Although if you could get one with the red and blue lights in the grill....that be sweet!!!!!!

And when the cops catch him he's going to jail.

Hmmm... Not positive, but pretty sure that a Sheriff in Pennsylvania is not premitted to make a traffic stop. Interesting.
