Just need to vent. I was coming home from a 3,000 mile trip after visiting my son in Maryland and my daughter in Florida. I had just crossed into Texas(5-10 miles) from Shreveport, LA on I-20, when I see a local sheriff parked in the center median. I glance at the speedo and I`m going 78 mph, no biggie I think to myself. Wrong, next thing I see is flashing lights in the rearview so I pull onto the shoulder and stop. Even though this is the slowest I had been driving the entire trip(average 80-85), the asshat gives me the worst speeding ticket I have ever gotten in 41 years of driving, $185. This happened at dusk and in Texas the speed limit changes to 65 at night. Needless to say, I won`t be going to Texas again for a long time. No food, fuel, motel, no mas.

So, beacuse you were speeding and thought you were bulletproof, you're mad at the cops? If you robbed a bank, would you be mad about doing time?

Must be an Okie thing.

My only question is, when you saw him in the median and you looked down at your spedo, cause that is just a natural reaction you can't do anything about, what did you think was going to happen?

I am thinking your in Texas and sporting OKie plates. Trust me when I say that the same would have happen to us in your state.

If it so much as looks like we are speeding we will get pulled over. It is a Texas-Oklahoma thing, nothing you can do to avoid it.

You Texicans crack me up. If I had been stopped by a Texas State Trooper, I could of dealt with it better. It is when Barney Fife gets out on the Interstate highway system to do some fund raising that gets my blood boiling. When that happens in Ok we call them Oklahomosexuals.[rofl] [cheers]

I hate getting tickets too, but I don't stop speeding. Just when you speed, make sure you get the flow of traffic moving with you too, hehehe

Its a skill.

hahahahahha, I hate you........my car isn't slow, I just don;t know how to take off "launch" in this thing.....when I got full throttle from the brake stand I just spin, then it bogs down.

I know I can get a high 16 easy....because I beat cars that run that all day long on the street/highway....some of my buddies.

And you need to slow down, think of the children! hahahhahaaha

The Barnie Fife reference was great, so typical of the Southern Redneck States. And Focalized31, your another reason not to go to TX, $185 is no laughing matter. Not to mention insurance surcharges. And that $185 has to go to TX??? What a waste. MAybe they'll use it to hire non-harrassing cops.
