My first speeding ticket...help

I got clocked doing 65.7 in the 45. When the cop pulled me i told him that i blew a fuse and was going to get a new guage cluster at the local junk yard. He said "go to court the judge knows you dont want points she might even waive the fine" What should I do? I cant pay this and I dont want insurance points.

That blows, how much is the ticket for?...Can't be too much. I guess your only option is to go to court though?...

I've gotten my SX up to 112mph before....

And I've been drilled with 1 ticket in it...71 in a 50(kms) when I know I was caught at 110...

As for the speeding ticket.

What time of day, what type of road, what type of traffic levels, weather conditions?


Furthermore, read through this site: http://www.magma.ca/~fyst/

Umm, nice contradictory sentences there you dumbass. You speed, but you don't get caught, yet you have gotten caught.

Shit happens, why pay for something that seems to be retarded in the first place.

I think what he meant is that he has his moments but when he gets caught he's responsible enough to pay the fine for his wrong doing, but it really wasn't the best wording

I didn't know they could clock you at tenths of a MPH. Does that add like a few extra cents onto the fine?
