Last speeding ticket

When was your last speeding ticket?

My last and only speeding ticket was ~1973 when I was doing doughnuts in the Seal Beach (Ca) pier parking lot. The cop gave me a ticket doing 15 mph in a 5 mph zone. Cool cop plus a bad view. I’m sure I was doing 40. The judge and my dad had a laugh and my [email protected]@ was kicked, ticket dropped.

LOL... this is really bad.. first speeding ticket within 3 months of getting my 350. Then another one within 1 month of that one. For same. Just can't help it sometimes! Arghh... sometimes I don't even know I'm going 80! So I'm currently trying to fight 2 points off my record.

A few, but not many in my life. Probably dodged several I should have gotten. As I get older, I'm have more patience and drive slower.

I don't want to jinx myself, so Knock on wood, I have none since having a driver's license. I guess I'm just plain fortunate.

No speeding tickets for me yet although sometimes I'm driving like I'm looking for one.

I think it depends where you drive most. I used to live on the edge of nowhere and raced the bike at silly speeds out in the country and never had a problem. Now I live in the middle of a small city I'm dodging radar and laser everyday of my life.

France. July 2006. 168kph (130 limit). 90 euro fine. Bargain!

(I think they hang you in the U.K. for such speeds.)

You're right....TheDallas area is really bad for cops.....They are everywhere in the Garland/Rowlett area.

I got a ticket a month ago (79 in a 60) but got a 30 day deferred adjudication and the 30 days are over so it won't even show up on my record at all.....as if it never happend.

Thank god Texas is a lot more lenient on speeding tickets than other states. If I was back in Florida I'd have been screwed either way.

My last ticket was also 1973! I had just passed my test and was doing 38 in a 30 MPH area. Funny thing is, I probably speed more than anyone else in my family (motorways) but have yet to get caught (only a matter of time? Perhaps it's because I read the road ahead better, looking for signs and cops? However, both my kids have has two tickets in the last couple of years, my son had to re-take his driving test as his two were close together

hey guys Ive never gotten a ticket yet *knock on wood* BUT I have been pulled over... 3 days after I had the car. My good friend has an 06 STi, we were doing about 95 in a 35, bumper to nose (it was 3 am so no cars were in a somehwat in town road). Apparantly a bunch of low life kids, got into a fight on the street (?? they wer elike 15, and had drawn a bunch of cops) when me and my buddy blasted by them. Just dirty looks. One cop who was getting there late passed about 2 blocks later and turned it around. He caught up with us about 6 mins later when we were both parked, my buddy got out of the parking lot with no chase, but I was out of my car . But hey he had no radar , and really no evidence it was me! I since havent done anything nearly as stupid as that night!

France, Autoroue Bordeaux-Lyon, May 2006: 152kph....the rest is the same, though I wouldn't consider it a bargain, because at home they'd fine me only around € 55.

2002...Kaiserslautern, Germany. I got nailed at night, the red flash was unmistakable! 3 weeks later the ticket came in the mail, 85 clicks in a 60 zone. Up to that point I was probably averaging 1 every 6 months or so.

In my 25 years of driving I've only ever got out of one speeding ticket. I was on a back road near Sumter, SC and got stopped for 65 in a 55. I told the I was on some sinus medicine and wasn't paying attention. While both statements were true, only half was accurate...you decide.

got few tickets ~ most recent one was in VA.
i was stuck in traffic and cars were moving about 5mph. and i was following traffic.
second thing i know was undercover cop trying to pull me over.
well if car was moving normal speed i could have pulled over right the way. but i couldn't.
!!! next thing he did was blast his siren and tell me to pull over. and he did that about 3 times.
At this point i was freaking out. because i couldn't pull over ~ other cars are not moving and his blasting his siren.
i was like "what do you want me to do!!!!" all kind of thing went through my mind.
and finally i pulled over to side and he goes Radar detector is illegal in VA.
yep... i was like don't you have better things to do???
and i end up with paying for ticket + court fee that i never went.
what a law.... one of the reason i will never live in VA or go down there.
