Ha! Only 45 over, and I thought you were actually speeding. LOL.
You should've been wearing your pink thingy!

45 over? 70 plus 45 over here would have meant an obligatory court appearance and probablya licence suspension for 6 months or more. Start looking at £1000 ( $1500 ) fine.

The trick is to NOT get caught!!

This is probably why "they" left the commonwealth! Yes, as stated above, here in Ontario 45mph over would be ~75kph over - car gone for a week, immediate license suspension, lots of points, insurance up...

My only question/hope, is that it was on a divided highway and not on a street...

Naughty naughty girl... R) :flag:

It didn't help that I cut him off to begin with ... I wasn't paying attention..AT all lol. Usually I can see fuzz a mile a way. Thanks to my spotless driving history, I pay the fine, I perform an online driving school class and it won't go on my record. We're on a 3 strikes your out rule here.

You drive it like you stole it people are going to be a BAD BAD influence on me..

Did you give the officer the old story "gee officer, it's a brand new car to me and I didn't realize how fast I was going........" and he didn't buy that? I guess 45 over is quite a lot. If you were driving on a free way marked 65 mph limit, that means you would have been going 110 mph, or in a residential area marked at 25 mph that means you would have been doing 70 mph.......... sweetie, that's pretty fast.

So tell us, what was the actual speed you were driving?

Don't we have a ticket kitty enforce here to pay for these nonsensical acts of law enforcement jealousy?

Just remember Chicago people, the next pot hole you see fixed, was thanks to me! Onto the next...SO worth it lol!!

Welcome to the world of city cops looking for free money! (honey).
If you continue to push the envelope, you might consider a Valentine 1. Although 45 over could be spotted by a blind ass.
Best Wishes, and do be careful.

speed limiter

Just incase i get blamed again....check and see if your model has a speed limiter on the cruise control stalk.....at least until you get used to the car ,it could be a licence saver......

Sorry to rain on your parade, but I don't think getting a ticket for driving 45 m.p.h. over the speed limit is anything to brag about. It's just not responsible driving and could lead to someone else getting injured or even killed.

$140.00 ticket...mine was $270.00 +- for going 23 over! Ruined my day at the mall! :( That'll wipe the SLK smirk right off one's face.

Keep in mind that 'sports cars' are a target for the cops...on I95 about 5 or 6 cars (one was a SLK) zoomed around me, a state trooper sat just over a rise...the ONLY car that got pulled over was...yup, the SLK and he wasn't even in the lead!

Lol

Gmon-you most certainly would :D

Lew-you cannot rain on my parade dear-im a benz owner and the ticket thread was for pure humor purposes. Although I guess if you like lecturing people you're in the right place to do so. None the less, I didn't get one today.. perhaps I've slowed down ;)

Rhart your day is coming baby! lol

Simply im sorry to hear it, that would have killed my shopping buzz too!

All it takes is one ticket people, this gets really expensive really quickly lol..

/shifting back into cruise mode :rockon:
