AaronIsGodOnEarth This guy got off on a technicality. He was driving over 100 mph, as written on the ticket. For that, he's an assclown.

That's 100 kph. 100 kph=62.1mph. Not that fast.

A full tank of gas costs you $30? I've heard of such things in stories, but it only costs half that much to fill up my civic every few weeks or so.

What's this in my crystal ball? It appears to be rising gas prices and SUV-drivers getting their comeuppance...


I have no choice but to drive an SUV because I can't find a farking job to pay for a new car (I got my dad's old SUV when he bought a new one).

Holy not safe for work pop-ups Batman!

What popups? Mozilla Firefox didn't see any popups.
 
2004-05-06 09:58:29 AM
Actually AaronIsGodOnEarth, he was driving over 100 KPH. Kilometers per hour. If you read the letter, 116 KPH to be exact. 72 mph. I don't really feel that makes him an 'assclown'.
 
2004-05-06 09:58:57 AM
One of the offenses he has just admitted to is driving at

 
2004-05-06 09:58:58 AM
Excuse me people, I'm just stopping by to point out to a few of you that 117 kmph in a 100 kmph zone is the equivalent of going 72.08102901882806 mph in a 62.138818119679364 mph zone. Given that we have quite a few 70 mph zones in the states, this guy wasn't going that fast.

Carry on.

I lived in Mexico City many moons ago. My dad got pulled over for something, I don't remember what. Anyhow, my dad got away with whatever it was he did by "bribing" the copy with a Playboy magazine and some cigars.

As to this guy with the speeding ticket I say... "Muy bueno!"
 
2004-05-06 10:03:47 AM
Has anyone else noticed that he was only 3.72 MPH over the speed limit?

3.72 MPH?!?!?!?

Holy Sheezot!!

In Smyrna, Tennessee they usually give you about 9 MPH.

Gar darm Aussie pigs!!!!!

2004-05-06 10:16:43 AM
Sweet christ, what a dumbass. He needs to be beat like a damn piniata. So the cop made an error and wrote the guy's birthday.

Stay away from Lakewood out in Old Hickory.

10 MPH over and the fine was $175 dollars. Luckily, I was eligible for the driver's education class. Still, that was freakin' $85.

Keep in mind that the dude was 10 KM/H over the speed limit. That is equal to roughly 3.72 MPH.

/according to Google
 
2004-05-06 10:25:29 AM
Should have done this myself. Got a ticket for driving with headphones "on both ears". Not sure why there's a difference, but regardless of my stupidity (even though I was more aware than everyone else on the road), the cop wrote my name Brain. Would have gotten out of paying if I had just kept it, but at the time I thought it would be more cruel to take my time and correct him as he was standing 2 inches from 65+ mph traffic. It was rather satisfying.

WTF, why you gotta pick on SUV drivers. I have a 6 cylinder SUV. It's not a gas hog. There are cars that get worse milage than my SUV. BTW, maybe I can afford the gas increase even if I'm not happy about. Oh well, guess I'll drive my BMW instead.
 
2004-05-06 10:27:43 AM
In my country, when the cop fills the ticket out wrong it is automatically waived. Obviously the cops knew this. Woulda been cooler if they waived it because they liked the story.

You got pulled because the mexican cop wanted a playboy and some cigars. That's how latin america works my friend. Make up a law on the fly to get that bribe. Kind of like a forced tip.

The headline underestimated the price of gas; filling up a compact car costs about $40. ($1/l; 40 l tank)

Too bad he can't get a ticket for that.

2004-05-06 11:06:00 AM
A little known fact, almost any type of clerical error on a ticket (i.e. date was ~20 years off) will get is dismissed in court. Trust me it works, like if they right the VIN number down wrong :).

That was the first thing I thought as well! "Ludicrous Speed!" ROFL

Col. Sandurz: Prepare ship for light speed!
Dark Helmet: No, no, no, light speed is too slow!
Col. Sandurz: Light speed, too slow?!
Dark Helmet: Yes, we're gonna have to go right to . . . ludicrous speed!
Col. Sandurz: Ludicrous speed?! Sir, we've never gone that fast before. I don't know if the ship can take it.
Dark Helmet: What's the matter Colonel Sandurz? Chicken?

A full tank of gas costs you $30? I've heard of such things in stories, but it only costs half that much to fill up my civic . . .

That has nothing to do with you have a civic, it has to do with you living in BFE, NC. I drive a sedan with a 14 gallon gas tank (like most sedans), and gas here is $2.50 a gallon someplaces.

That's $35 a fillup right there.

one not-so-newsworthy website with endless self promotional remarks by holier than thou net-rats: X amount of dollars

laughing our fat asses off at Armageddon over hot pockets and mountain dew: X amount of dollars

Using a farking Master Card commercial as an acceptable modicum and clich of sarcasm over and over and over and over and over until we have lost all sense of the irony. . .

Priceless.

That was fantastic. I also have a bit of a ticket story...I was pulled over for "Driving at Safe Speeds" - I scanned a copy of the ticket and posted it here. It was just too funny. It seriously said: "Charge: Driving at Safe Speed." I can assume that this isn't what the officer meant when he pulled me over.....but still, it was amusing. I'd planned on fighting it, but unfortunately it was a whirlwind week in which I applied, was accepted to, and went to college all in one week and I would have had to drive all the way back home to fight a ticket that I might have lost anyhow. It was 104 bucks poorly spent.
 
2004-05-06 11:46:16 AM
And to think, I got let off with a warning for doing 54 in a 35 zone. Good cop. Roll over. Here's a biscuit.

Lesson Learned:
If you have no criminal record and your driving record is spotless, and you happen to get pulled over doing almost 20 over the limit on a long stretch of road that has about 20 different bars within 3 miles, and it's damn near midnight, just tell the cop you were due home an hour ago and your mom is going to disembowel you. Especially if it's that nice black guy, and you call him sir.

He cheated anyway though. Radar detector picked him up a mile away, when I was like 2 blocks away he shut his damn radar off. Coward.

/HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, DUKE PHILLIPS PAYS FOR NOTHIN!!

Of course, if this were in the States, the cops would have a massive hard-on for this guy for the rest of his life. He wouldn't be able to leave his house without getting nailed/set up/entrapped for something.


what's making you think they won't do that in NZ?

Talk about small towns & ticket errors. One time going to work I got pulled over with a string of 3 other cars (one of those jump out in the road and flag everyone down revenue generation tactics they use). The cop wrote down the wrong car color/make/plate (I think it was one of the others in the line) on my ticket. So of course I went to court to fight it. Magistrate said it didn't matter that the officer made those errors. I said well what does that say about the accuracy of the officers speed reading on my car, are they allowed to make errors on that too? He kind of gave me a blank look, and said I'll reduce the ticket, but your are still responsible. So I appealed it, and the officer never showed up.

moral of the story, doesn't matter if the office makes errors, you are always at fault you worthless tax payer; and always appeal.

the link is farked
 
2004-05-06 01:02:47 PM
Thanks, Undertheteable, for that information!

Let's look at the possibilities.

Given: If you care about the link, you've already tried it.

Either the link is farked or it's not.

If the link is not farked, there are two possibilities: The person reading visited the link, or he didn't.

So, you've either told someone who -did- visit the link something they know isn't true, or...
told someone who -didn't- something that doesn't make any difference since they didn't care enough to visit.

If the link IS farked, there are two possibilities: The person reading visited the link, or he didn't.

So, you've either told someone who -did- visit the link something they've already seen for themselves, or told someone who -didn't- something that doesn't make any difference...

Congratulations! Your post is proven devoid of content.
