Got caught speeding

Recommended Posts

 

It was long overdue. Definitely noticed more chippies as of late. I'm sure my tinted windows don't help my constant scanning for them at night. In just a blink of an eye he was coming in hot. Wrote me up 84 on a 65. Whatever (I don't think I broke 80). I make my bed blah blah blah... question for y'all tho... anyone have luck those Mr. Ticket type of services who claim to get you out of it? How does it work? Anyone used it? Also noticed on that video someone recently posted on Wilkey on the golf course assault one that one of the sponsors was a similar service. Of course I watched it today and thought "nah, I'll never need it. Them ol' chippies got nothing on me" and bang. I'm on the side of the highway. There goes the neighborhood I guess...

Also, what about radar detectors? What is working out there? I thought they now had some type of glorified signal where they don't show up on radar detectors? I need help! I'm a compulsive speeder!!

I run an Escort detector and it's saved my butt so many times....

My son in law uses Mr. Ticket a lot (Ducate Bike)........he has yet to pay a speeding ticket. Nuff said.

I use a Valentine 1, which is more than a radar detector, it's a radar locator. It can track up to 9 different emitters at a time, it will classify them based on type (laser, Ka, K, etc), which is closest and which direction the most dangerous signal is. As a former ESM operator, it is the closest to an ESM suite you can buy as a civilian. However, it's not magic and if the Laser operator is good, he'll nail you before you can slow down. Most of them hold the trigger too long and by the time they let go, you've slowed down to within 10 mph of the speed limit.

About a yr ago I got nailed on the 5N/805N area and hired one of the traffic attorneys. I paid him $100 and he was basically worthless. He was more interested in getting paid and did virtually nothing. He filed a couple of extensions but when all of that ran out, we went to court and  the CHP was there, with excellent notes. He suggested I plead guilty. That was his strategy. We went to court and the judge I got was a middle eastern woman, a young one. She seemed very nice and friendly, until she saw I had an attorney, then she got all serious.

Mind you, the first person was an old Chinese dude who claimed to have been driving in the US for 21 yrs with no traffic citations, but he claimed he didn't speak English and needed a translator. REALLY??? Friggin 21 yrs in the US and you don't speak the focking language?? She let him off at 1/2 the fine, $50.  The 2nd guy wasn't properly identified as the suspect by the cop, so she dismissed his charges altogether. The 3rd guy was a jarhead from PA who claimed he'd never seen an HOV lane before in his life. REALLY? No HOV lanes in PA??? She believed that line of crap and let him off for $100, huge discount. 

When it was my turn, I explained to her the physical impossibility of shooting a laser beam diagonally across 10 lanes of traffic and hitting my Camry in the fast lane without any other cars interfering and then getting the beam to return to the emitter at a 45* angle. I then used the example of a bank shot on a pool table. She still no comprende. Just my luck to get a dumb t*** who doesn't understand the basics of physics.

The attorney had no strategy. No questions for the CHP, no objections, raised no doubts. I did it all. I pointed out it's impossible for the officer to shoot the laser, put it down, pull safely into hwy traffic going 80 mph and maintain full visual contact with my gold Camry, one of many in the morning rush hour traffic. She just said, "I don't understand any of this, so I believe the cop." 

I paid the full fine, worthless lawyer's $100 fee plus online traffic school. Bottom line: there are no guarantees because Lady Justice is deaf, dumb and blindfolded.

Don’t not waste your money on Mr Ticket and similar. Every week I deal with them. If you show up and have your stuff together, it is always a change of plea to guilty. They have never taken me to trial!

Ive used Mr Ticket (Mitch something or another), years ago.  I went through a point where I was getting pulled over twice a year.  He got them reduced to traffic school every time (4 or 5 times).  Im glad I grew out of that....

Delay delay delay. Keep getting extensions or delay and good chance chippie may lose his notes or miss court date

This.  Then request a trial by written declaration.  Last thing a cop wants is more paperwork, so you might not even get a counter to your declaration.  If found guilty still, request an in-court trial and amend to traffic school.

Keep in mind that a "not guilty" plea carries the risk of being denied traffic school.

He wrote you up for under 20 mph over the limit so you can go to Traffic school! Anything over 20mph over the limit doesn't allow TS.

Do it online...easy.

Do the Crime?, Do the online Traffic School and then SLOW DOWN.

Got a 84 in 65 ticket 6 months ago, I was speeding about 4 mph then everyone else. Sucks, but it was legit.

My Teenager did the online traffic school, good practice for his upcoming test this year.

 

 

Wait?....breaking this law is ok and getting it off your record or getting out of paying it is OK because.....?

2 postponements, then Subpoena the officers Radar training certificate, also the tuning and calibration certs for that particular devise. Also was a tuning fork used? Sometimes that’s a big PITA and or something is not up to date. If that’s the case then you could be off the hook.

Or just don’t be the fastest guy on the freeway. 75-ish won’t get you a second look unless you’re the only one on the freeway...

Last time I did online traffic school it took me 15 minutes. No waiting a certain time limit per page. Was a joke.

That being said, my wife used ticket assassin twice and it worked.

That's the aggravating part. Even if you're traveling at the rear of a pack, or getting passed by someone doing 100 mph, sometimes they just arbitrarily pull you over out of the masses. Sometimes it's just your turn in the barrel.

You just put out on the internet you committed a crime.  Having your daughter do your traffic school is a fraud on the court.  :sha::lol:
