Well...drove an hour to pay my fine and tell the Judge I'm sorry. Ended up with a 500 fine + 162 in court costs. At least they will let me make payments! I took 400 in cash but it wasn't quite enough. Ah well live and learn.

For those that dont remember or didn't see it, got nailed doing 101 in a 55 last month...

YOUCH! That's a little extreme don't you think? Over 600.00?! I think everyone should go out, drive over a hundred MPH, get caught, pay the huge fine, just to support the economy. I swear that's the only way any states manage to balance their budget. On that rediculous 55 speed limit. I'm done ranting.

What state do you live in? In Virginia, 101 can earn you a nice set of bracelets, a check-in at the county hotel, an introduction to a bail bondsman, a hefty fine, court costs, community service, and a suspension.

When I was in college, I really started slowing down, doing maybe 5-10 over the limit. Then on one long stretch from carlsbad to san clemente, I ended up pacing a highway patrol at about 65-70 (65 speed limit). went fine for a while, then when we got into san clemente, the highway patrol i was pacing sped up to maybe 75 without me realizing. then what do i see behind me? another higway patrol with her light's going. pulled me over and gave me a ticket for 10 over. I pleaded with her but to no avail.

so from then on, i speed as much as i want, but just keep an eye on the mirror. i wonder if that cop has any idea that by giving me a ticket she actually made the highway a less safe place?
