There's a simple solution. Just make written-off tickets classified, and we won't hear any more about this.

Got a name for people like you, Hi. That name is called recidivism.

30 years ago I had a 100+ in a 70 reduced to 'too fast for conditions' the day after I'd gone fishing with the judge.

I also know that it helps to fully stop at a four way when you roll up at the same time as a cop. Oh yah, and fix that darn headlight!

Slow this morning. I would also have to say this is the major reason why I am nice to the police. It has not helped however.

I know evey law enforcement officer in the county as well as the district judge, JP and Game Warden. I have never asked for nor do I expect special treatment from any of them.

But then again I have this weird habit of not breaking the law...

I get out of all of my tickets due to name dropping.

Me: "Is there a problem officer?"
Cop: "You were going twice the speed limit, passing a day care center, throwing glass beer bottles out of the window"
Me: "Sorry officer, my [insert relation here] is a cop"
Cop: "Slow down, and have a nice day"

//Old man is a retired cop
////No, really he is.

Cripes. I think six speeding tickets in two years is enough to qualify as a habitual offender, where I live.

H.O. = No license for something like 5 years

That's how I get out of criminal cases for jury duty. My bro-in-law is a cop, so the judge always asks if that would make me biased towards cops (actually, it might make me biased against cops as well - but the judge never asks about that). Then off I go.

Doesn't work with civil cases though, since police testimony is rarely involved.
 
2006-03-02 09:23:59 AM
Maybe it's the fact that tickets aren't about safety, but revenue and of course friends in high places don't hurt either.
Plus the guy's a lawyer, he would have gotten out of them anyway, it's a money saving measure by not using court time that will be lost, unlike court time used on your otherwise law abiding citizen.

Would love to be called for jury duty. I am 31 and have never been called. My wife gets called for Federal Court every couple of years.

You are just asking for someone to follow you around for a couple of months 24/7. Are you SURE you want that?

This is the new AmeriKa, they no longer need reasonable cause to surveille.

Try voting sometime - that would help your chances a little bit.

Seriously that bumeper sticker on your car that says: "If they got arrested, they must be guilty of something!" ain't helping matters much.

Timbomb: You don't speed? Everyone speeds.


Not really. The longest road trip I take is usually no more that 150 miles. Takes about 2 hours. If I go 80 instead of 70 I have gained 20 minutes in that 2 hours. If I get pulled over, I'm about even on time...and out money for the ticket, defensive driving class and/or insurance. So I gain squat.

Either that, or I'm just getting old.

I just get really pissed when I'm the passenger of a female driver, and the cops let her go. Happened to me a few times in my single days, and every time I just wanted to yell, "You mother farker, I get a god damn ticket every farking time!!!" at the cop. But, that never turns out good. So I sat there fuming like a biatch.

So is the speed limit 70 where you live then?

pete409: Please RTFA next time. It was the judge, not the police...

Please RTFA next time.

From the FTA:
Monique Buford runs a restaurant near the Metro police training academy.

She also racked up six speeding tickets -- tickets that were all dismissed. Notes on the tickets suggest it was at the request of a police officer.

Females get their day too. I thought I could always get out of a ticket until I got pulled over by one mean biatch cop, she nailed me to the proverbial wall. She ticketed me for speeding (6 miles over limit), crossing the solid yellow line (debate-able), insufficient tread on tires (dumb) and license plate lights were out.

Cost me a fortune. SO we get ours too, just not as often. maybe she would have been nicer to you.
 
2006-03-02 10:00:05 AM
Next time a cop pulls you over, just pretend to pull a gun from your pocket. Be sure to move quickly, it makes them laugh every time.

jbcuky: So is the speed limit 70 where you live then?


Every highway...Don't forget, I live in the sticks. I head 1 mile in any direction from my house and I'm on a 70 MPH stretch of pavement.
 
2006-03-02 10:02:49 AM
My grandmother used to be a county elected official. She gave the highway patrol their paychecks and knew them all. On at least one occasion, a highway patrol just wagged his finger at her when she was caught speeding. And I don't think they ever pulled her over (or any of the other county officials either).

Also, as far as jury duty goes, at least in TX, selection is from your driver's licence, not voting registration.
 
2006-03-02 10:05:49 AM
There's some d*ckhead sherif in blue springs missouri that is getting boners by stopping people every day on this one strip of road because the speed limit is artificially lower'd... He almost caused an accident one day by darting out in traffic, then tailing a car too close, then driving over the grassy medium to bust another person..

I hope that pig gets a donut shove'd up his *ss!

guy gets pulled over for speeding

officer asks him if he can search the car

guy says: sure but be careful of the gun in the glove box, the drugs under the seat and the dead body in the trunk.

cop gets on radio and calls SWAT and backup

Now the car is surrounded by officers with guns drawn

Search of the car reveals no gun, no drugs and no dead body

Sght says to driver: The officer said you had a gun, drugs and a dead body

guy says: Yeah I bet he said i was speeding too.

der - i'm really bored - sorry again - i'm leaving now

Probably not. All the female police officers around these parts are bull-dykes with an attitude. They are not nice to ANYBODY.

If Dancin_In_Anson is talking about two lane roads, the 70 MPH limit for state roads in Texas is close enough to the speed of traffic that obeying it is not silly like obeying 55 is in the Northeast.

Hell, US 180 is two lane in either direction for 100 miles east and God only knows how far west...
