So after not having my car all winter I get it back and get a speeding ticket about 3 hours later :(. I was in a group of cars and the cop singled me out. Sucks big time but I guess it's not bad considering it's my first with the car and I've owned it for 2 and half years.

Its unfortunate, but if you were speeding they can only chase one so why not the flashy one. I speed as well on occasion but try to stay with the flow of traffic so it doesn't look obvious, but if they catch me then there is no one to blame but me. Its my choice, my foot and they are doing a job.

Don't hate the cops, just the system. We're a lot better off with them than without.
True, most police aren't bad...in fact, I greatly appreciate all they do for the community. It is the system that SUCKS!!! Laws are created for a specific reason...I'm assuming speed limits are created for safety purposes. Unfortunately, most areas enforce speed limits only to bolster their income, not in a manner that fits the original "INTENT" of the law.

In my opinion, stretches of road and/or intersections that are historically dangerous should have cops sitting around enforcing the law to a T. In areas that are not historically dangerous, they shouldn't pull people over for speeding...period!!! I don't care if there is a convenient pulloff to catch people in a certain area...if there aren't many accidents in that area, get the F#$% out.

Lol you just got caught. I am sure I am next as I have been tempting fate for over 2 years now. Think of all the launches and quick 70 to 100 runs you've gotten away with in the past hehe. By the way the USB is like a finger to any cop :)
Sorry Man...

I don't really hate cops they are great for our community. I have an uncle and very good friend who are cops. It was more of a sarcastic remark cause I finally got caught. Luckily it wasn't one of my blasts that I do everytime I have the car out. So in that sense I'm happy. Just sucks cause it was 2 pts and if he dropped the speed by 2 mph it would have been 1 pt. Oh well.

Well said, my thoughts exactly.
