Speeding Ticket(s)

Okay - The inevitable just happened yesterday... I got a speeding ticket.
I knew it would happen, I was just hoping it would have been a little longer before I got one, but to be fair to the cop, I honestly deserved it.

Anybody else had this little reality check, too??

Valentine 1 saves me most every time I go out.. It's really easy to be doing 65 in 45, and in NJ that's a 4 pointer.. and 65 in a 45 on a rice backroad really isn't tearing it up.

If you want to try and fight the ticket, then I suggest you check out http://www.ticketassassin.com/

If you don't feel like fighting, then I suggest traffic school. I'm not sure if sacramento allows online traffic school though, but that is the way to go, which is much more convenient.

My suggestion is try and fight the ticket.

ONON-

Sorry to hear that Jeff,.... but need some details!???

No tickets on the K-R......yet, but then I keep it under 140....most of the time

Over the last two years I've been tagged once and it was on the LT... in one of those "zero tolerance" enforcement efforts .

I have an Escort 8500 on the LT and it has been an insurance premium saver. Even for that one ticket
the RD picked up the signal and I was able to shed about 15 mph before he got a lock. Probably cut the ticket cost in half and kept me out of the dreaded "more than 20 over" headache.

Maybe we should get together next NorCal tech-session and install radar detectors on the new K's . I've got my power cord, rain box, detector and HARD transmitter ready to go.

Let me know if you're "in" and I'll make sure to give you a heads-up.

How refreshing to read about someone who got a ticket and says they deserved it. I don't remember ever reading that before. Usually, the post is filled with asinine arguments as to why the guy shouldn't have gotten it, or why it's invalid, followed by a dozen other posts demeaning to police officers in general.

I can understand the impetus to fight speeding tickets because they're expensive and can have long-lasting repercussions; but still, my hat's off to Jet-A.

Along these same lines, I was out riding Sunday doing just five over the speed limit. Easily with the flow of traffic. I hit a small bump in the road that jarred me a bit and my wrist rolled on some speed inadvertently. now I was doing about 12 over, looked up and saw a police car coming at me from the opposite direction. I about s__t myself. Can't afford another ticket. Came home and told the wife about how I really needed a radar detector. She eyed me coolly and said if I just rode the speed limit none of this would happen. Sheesh, I'm going to have to wear her down again just like I did before I bought the bike.

Howdy jd,

I assume it's a $$ thing with the "better half". Suggest you keep your eye out in the classifieds for a used one. I did and got good price on one.

It's always a money thing. We were born poor. She hasn't gotten used to spending money yet. Which means there is always plenty for my hobbies.
