My First SVTF ticket!

Well, I knew that going to work the day-after christmas was a bad idea! ...

The car infront of me suddenly decides that they wanted to stop and turn! So I take advantage of a small window of opportunity and speed up to switch lanes and avoid crashing into him... Well wouldn't you know it! A cop was heading the other way!! SHE busted a U-Turn and got on my ass! Next I know, I'm stopped on the side of the road... 54 in a 35 she says! I wasn't sure she was right... But I never looked at my Speedo while I was trying to stay alive!

Well, long story short... I had a bunch of tickets on my record from when I was younger, so she didn't even hesitate to write me up for 10 over! (I guess it could have been worse!) But common!!! It's CHRISTMAS!!!!



I hope my insurance company doesn't find out!

you should get the ticket taken care of with a lawer. i know it costs more now but it saves money in the long run. and the insurance company will not find out

I got a speeding ticket for the exact same speed - 54 in a 35 zone. Stupid, really. It was on a frontage road that parallels the freeway near my house. I drive it all the time so I do tend to go a little fast. It was empty that day except for me, and a motorcycle cop coming in the other direction. It was a holiday weekend (Memorial Day I think?) so that didn't help.

I got tagged on Christmas day and had to pay it twice!

I was going back to SC from VA on I-77 and got busted in my Mustang by a cop in an unmarked Taurus....yes it was a friggin' Taurus...he wrote me for 77 in a 65 (what a crock)...and that was back in 1998, so I sent in the payment via Postal money Order and all is well...so I moved back to VA two years ago and I go to transfer my Drivers License over to VA and they lady tells me I have an open fine on my record....I had moved twice in 3 years from SC -> AL -> VA and I didn't have a clue as to where my money order slip was to prove I had paid it so I had to pay it AGAIN!...man not only did I get busted by a turd in a Taurus on Christmas day, but I had to pay it twice....doesn't get any worse than that!

So...keep your proof of payment!

Sorry to hear, maybe your insurance company wont find out. Insurance rates these days are high enough without adding to it. Anyway Good luck, maybe if you fight it you can get out of it.

See I personally think girls have it a little easier, usually I find that I can sweet talk my way out of a ticket when I get pulled over... at least.. so far :)
