Only one in my life, a 43 in a 30. I have a knack for seeing the cops before other people do, and slowing down early enough that they don't get me. That, and I don't speed where there might be cops, just where I can see that there aren't any around, and there is no traffic.
Actually I was wrongly diagnosed of epilepsy when I was younger. I no longer had health insurance, so I couldn't prove I was on the pills I was forced to take. I lost my license for that instead. I didn't appear on most of those ticketts at all. By the time I cleared up the epilepsy crap, my record had cleared itself.
1 court order- impersonating a cop. Don't put blue lights on your car at all.
1 ticket-55 in a 45
almost one for racing a camero z28. The camero slowed down. I got away. It was my friend. he got one for racing and 90 in a 55. The ticket wrote "loser got away". I will never live that one down. he got out of it though. Told them I was waving a gun around at him!!!! GEEZ
28 years of driving = 1 ticket - 67 in a 55 - outcome - not guilty in court.
It was 15 years ago, I was driving a Porsche 914 on a hot sunny 4th of July afternoon. The cop was a rookie NY State Trooper, and I swear I was NOT speeding. I had a witness who was standing in his driveway as I passed and the trooper zapped me. The trooper failed to show in court TWICE, which leads me to believe he knew he was wrong. The judge threw out the ticket.
I rarely exceed 10 over the limit, I don't run lights or stop signs, and my driving style could never be called "reckless" (agressive, perhaps, but not reckless) so I'm not really a prime candidate for traffic court.
Oh, and it's not because I'm OLD either - my driving style hasn't changed since I was 16.
