Beat the first one via Trial by Declaration, anm attempting with the second.

Chances are it won't slide through this time, as this would be the fourth I've beaten in a row.

Bought a Valentine One - oh my Gawd what a lovely piece of kit. How'd I ever speed without it?

I don't think Ga offers Trial By Declaration, I went to http://www.helpigotaticket.com/, the site seems to be geared around Ca law.

Ticket $285,
Escort ZR3 Laser Shifter, $299. (after the fact)
Escort 8500X50B RADAR DETECTOR, $339. (after the fact)
The thrill of driving an awesome performance vehicle, Priceless!

I was 5 miles from the dealer when I got pulled over for doing 59 in a 45mph construction zone. Cop walked up and asked the usual questions. When I told him I bought it 5 minutes ago he asked to see the odometer. With less than 25 miles on it he told me I had a nice car and to watch my speed and be carefull. Nice Officer.

Just bought the GTO but was driving my other car -- and got popped for 49 in a 35. Until then, no tickets for 12 years. Cop decided to be a jerk and wrote me. Followed Groucho's advice and visited helpigotaticket.com. Haven't heard back yet -- but am expecting to win. Thanks, Groucho. George McCalip is awesome.

lost the licence because of the fact that I was racing a Trans Am Ws6 at the time i was doing that speed. Also doesnt hurt that in California doin that far over the speed limit is considered attempted manslaughter. I think i got off easy!!

Like a nimrod, I got provoked into flooring my 05 Goat to get away from some puke who wouldn't stop harassing me with a Jetta VR6. I let off at about 140, and was still going 110 when the cop got both of us. 2 counts of reckless driving (35+ over speed limit and racing). It cost me a grand in lawyer fees, a driver retraining course, and now I have AR for 2 freakin' years and 100 hours of community service. To say that I felt like an idiot in that courtroom, and that they take this stuff very seriously would understatements. To make matters worse, the first attorney I hired got arrested himself the day before my final court appearance for embezzling client funds, so I had to cough up another 250, over the 750 I already did, to get representation. 400 hp is very tempting indeed.
