Ticket

Got my first ticket! Of course, it's a completely fabricated lie, but it's still a ticket!
15 over: $140
Failure to signal: $120
Tailgating: $120
Wasting a day of classes in court: Priceless.

Said I was doing 85 on his laser. Three things wrong with this:
1) I was doing 78-80. Looked down when detector went off.
2) My radar detector went off, not for a laser, but for radar.
3) He was moving. Last I checked, you gotta be sitting still to use a laser gun.

Also said I didn't use a turn signal. I have a witness in the car who says I did! I ALWAYS use my signal for lane-changes, 'cause I'm afraid of being hit by some idiot.
Thirdly, he wrote me up for tailgating. Last I checked, 12-15 car lengths isn't tailgating, and furthermore, he said I was tailgating a silver car, when it was in fact a white Chrysler Pacifica with a landscaping logo on the back.
Guess who gets to go to court?

Sounds like someone's a bit behind on his quota...did he cite you for no turn signal and following too closely in addition to speeding, or did he just mention it to you?

Ouch...

Well, like I said he's probably behind on his quota. Good luck in court...its going to boil down to your word vs. the officer's, and I'm not a betting man, but if I were I'd put money on the judge taking his word over your's.

They will always monitor road even though there not the HP, so if I or someone else gets pulled over I might probably say "Ah! You just let another drug dealer slip by just so you can give me a ticket for going 40 in a 35 MPH zone. " That would suck ass dude.

well, i got a ticket for NO SEATBELT last week and i actually have to pay. i am the only person i know that has been pulled over for no seatbelt, much less given a ticket for no seatbelt. Most cops these days are just mad because no one respected them in high school.
