Be grateful......In NY a speeding ticket thats 20 mph or more over the limit is subject to license suspension, unless ya get it reduced.

thats jail time here. 30 mph over. I was caught doing well over the posted speed limit;) and the cop turned out to be one cool dude.

Lets just say I was going all out and I was in 5th gear. He was stopped in the median. I could have ran, but I have three kids and figured I should be responsible and pull over. I got out walked to the back and waited. Took him a while to finally catch up.

He called in a Cavalier!!!!! A CAVALIER!!!!! going over 140!!!!!!!

I actually laughed at that and called him a punk playfully. Its a real funny and long story. I have it posted somewhere here back a couple of months ago.

n00bs. :D

I've had four speeding tickets since I've owned the Holden...it's part of the game when you drive as much as I do...though it may be a function of a screaming yellow car with rallye stripes as well. :lol:

Only had to pay on one, however...the others were beat by using Trial by Declaration and one by the officer not showing in court. :seeya:

If you plead Trial by Declaration, do you have to post bail? Is that a set amount or recommended by the judge?

Geez, I got one ticket in my old car over a year ago -- and am still fighting it. Unfortunately, the cop is from a really small town where there is absolutely NOTHING else for him to do. Next trial is in a month. Sigh. Went to http://www.helpigotaticket.com -- and George has been pretty awesome to deal with.

Get an attorney.........will cost you about $500 but he'll get it reduced to a non-moving violation, no points, etc. Well worth it IMO..........
