It didn't work for me in 1978 either.  57 in a 35.

On the Autobahn, no one would ask, and you wouldn't tell.

had a customer who stopped in the other week, said she got a ticket for doing 110mph a couple years ago while driving a vehicle before she traded it in....said vehicle was a 97 tercel (turd-cel) whose top speed, brand new, was...110mph...when she traded it in, the front end was about to fall out from underneath, it would shake violently at 45mph, and even had an engine skip...that thing wouldn't go 110mph downhill with an airburst in the arse with greased tires...she never paid the ticket, went to register her new vehicle, said she has to go to court first for the speeding ticket...hopefully the judge will have a  little common sense...poor thing.

How about, "I had some bad smoked fish and two large Americanos a couple of hours ago."?

Would that have flown?

I've never driven faster for as long a period of time, before or since.

Anything over 100 is a waste

Open highway with good visibility and good weather.  Safe car and capable driver.  Why is this a bigger fine and suspension than drunk driving in Alberta?

xiola: Open highway with good visibility and good weather.  Safe car and capable driver.  Why is this a bigger fine and suspension than drunk driving in Alberta?


Because King Ralph drove drunk, not fast.

This is "news" today because of the CBC's coverage at the start of the week about efforts to give the PoPo in Alberta more seizure and detainment powers under the guise of "clamping down on dangerous speeders".. because enforcing the existing laws is just too tough.

I've got to say that you're coming off as a huge prick with a small prick and sooner or later you'll get caught. Radar isn't the only way to catch someone speeding.

Correct, but Radar is much easier to detect than laser. When they try to nail you with radar, you have a much larger window of opportunity to slow down to the speed limit. With laser, if you have a shifter, their display comes up blank.

My favourite is police aircraft, I watch shmucks get nailed by them all the time and have even helped them find a speeder a few times.

Good point, the trick there is to know the laws of the state you're driving in. In many states, they still have to use radar as the tool to measure speed. If your radar detector goes off, keep to the speed limit until the signal has abated for at least 5 minutes.

/My friend got nailed this way coming down a mountain pass. His detector kept going off, but he didn't see any place for the cops to be hiding so didn't slow down. They nabbed him at the bottom.

They use lines evenly spaced around here for the airplanes and the helicopters can measure speed pretty accurately.

Whoa, now, those are there to help drivers calibrate their odometers! They even have signs from AMA identifying them as such!

Heh. As someone that has spent 2 months of the last year in Germany I'm getting a kick out of this. Coming back to the US highways felt like walking. I took a Minivan (my work rental) up to 125 from Berlin to Hamburg. Even then stay the fark right because you never know when an Audi R8 is going to come flying by.

There are numerous roads I drive in the US that will support the speed just fine. My little VW Golf will cruise all day at 110 MPH... alas that's illegal.
 
2013-06-19 08:45:00 PM
And the accident rate in Germany is far lower. Lower speed limits are dangerous on highways. It causes driver drone, boredom, tiredness, more fatigue, distractions. If you let the people drive, they will focus more on driving than texting, etc...

In Germany, for example, people tend to really know how to drive. In America... well I'm not even gonna go there. In Germany, Lower speed limits are placed to respect certain areas. You don't want people doing 200kph through a tight market or residential area (no, the driver's vote does not count.. hee hee...).

No speed limit, the courts lose money. And it always revolves around money.

I mean, think of I-5 through the nowhere areas of California. Miles of nothing but straight ass freeway. 80+ should be had.

You're not kidding. I thought i was hot sh*t on a business trip when i got the little 1.2L Opel EconoBox rental up to 115 heading south out of Frankfurt. The BOW WAVE of a jet black tinted out R8 passing me at about 180 pushed me over a couple inches in my lane.
 
2013-06-20 12:46:49 AM
Its a dumb excuse.  If you have any respect for your car you dry it with a chamois.  That said a license suspension for barely clearing 100 mph seems crazy.
 
2013-06-20 02:57:33 AM
It's highway 22.  If the mounties waited a few minutes more, the would have caught some guy in a souped up 4x4 pulling a trailer going at least that fast.

There's a reason it's called the cowboy trail.

When I bought my first new car, I took it out on the highway to see what it could do.  I got it up to about 110 on a lonely AZ backroad and almost immediately got tagged by a cop who just happened to be nearby.  When I explained that I'd never had a car that wasn't a beater and just wanted to see how fast my spiffy new roadster could go, he chuckled and said he remembered doing the same thing when he got his first car.

I got off with a warning about what running into a javelina at 110mph would have done to my nice new car (not to mention ME) and the name of a local racing club that could help me find a track and get some training so I didn't Tokyo Drift myself into a hospital.

If anyone is familiar with Rt. 322 East bound out of State College, there's a really steep hill with a rather sharp left at the base.

I was flying down that with some friends as we were headed to a festival for the weekend and didn't think anything of the forest green State Parks truck parked about half-way down the descent.

We drifted through the left at the bottom right in front of the actual police cruiser and if that wasn't enough, he was already waiting for us as he had his radar mounted in the god damned State Parks truck up the hill!

Massive fine and an ass-load of points because it was apparently a construction zone too despite any markings we would have otherwise ignored.

He never found the 3/4 filled open bottle of Absolut behind my seat (we weren't drinking it, just bringing it... we were dumbasses, not morans).

Also we were high.

Good times.
