Re: Lucky three times in a row
I think the amount of respect you show only has part to do with it.. When I got my 95 in a 75 ticket a couple of years ago, the cop was already writing when he got out of the car. Same thing with my 80 in a 65 a couple months ago. I could have offered to wash and wax his car and I was still getting the ticket.. I am always respectful, and I still get tickets. I can count on one finger how many times I have been let go with a warning. And I get pulled over for some stupid **** too.
License Plate Light out - 2 times
51 in a 45 - (That's when I got my warning. Cop asked me how fast I was going, I said I don't have a speedometer, just a tach, and guessed 50. He said 51, close, now slow it down, and let me go.)
65 in a 45 - Leaving on a trip with the family and I had just sped up because I could see the 65 sign. I ended up pulling over right past the 65mph sign as he wrote away. I got the old "you can't do the speed until you have passed the sign" lecture..
edit: correct spelling...
