Angry Speeding !!!

Well got my first speeding ticket in my G8 . Ive had it since July 2012 and last week got my first one in the car. Luckily he let me off with 15 over cause he nailed me doing 81 kmh in a 50 kmh zone. So no points and just 53 bucks. In stead of 400 + and 4 points.
Oh and my little toy I have went off too late and couldnt slow down in time going down a steep hill and BAM he was right at the bottom.

Ya compared to what it would have been I was real nice with the guy and he said he loved the car he walked around it to look what it was cause he hadnt seen the G8 much. I guess hes a car guy thank god. I have never gotten off that good before and I had just got the same ticket in my Malibu not even a year ago. Damn i gotta slow down LOL

Not sure actually but court fees for non moving violations are $90. Never got a speeding ticket. knock on wood, The 1 speeding ticket I got was dropped because it was BS and the Judge and cop knew it.

I got pulled over here in the states and I was 15 over. All I can say is I had to get my lawyer father to help plead it down . It cost me 350 bucks and the judge didn't even mention points and I wasn't about to remind him ,so I assume there wasn't any . Wow ,I wish it woulda been 53 bucks . That wasn't in the g8 ,I've been going faster in that at times and mannnnn ,I'd be in some **** if they got me in the g speeding. They'd probably lock me up lol. I guess radar detector is in your future lol.

First and ONLY speeding ticket for 80 mph in a 55 mph. $383 later, one trip to driving school and no points, everything is better.

Yes I had my V1 on, no I wasn't paying F'ing attention. Again, lack of SA. My radar detector was turned all the way down on the volume control from the valet. Nice move....

Wow I feel so much better lol. I thought I was the only one that got hosed for 300 on a speeding ticket. I forgot what they where originally gonna charge me. I learned that in New York ,if they plead down the ticket ,the money stays in the area and doesn't go to the state . I hear the state is looking to change it to where you can not plead down a speeding ticket do to that . Gotta love New York

Got a 12mph over which is a 10-15mph over in Henderson, NV ticket was 2 points and $308. go to an attorney out here (standard practice for Vegas people) i used to get it reduced to parking tickets 0 points and less than $100 in the past. they changed their policy in Henderson so what i ended up with was 0 points, $308 "parking ticket" + $50 for the attorney barter.

YOU ARE LUCKY!!!
