It finally happened. After two months of owning my 07 V, I got my first ticket. I was doing 90 in a 70 on I5 at 3:45 am going to Infineon Raceway. No one was on the road and 90mph is pretty safe for the v. Luckily he only wrote me up for 80, but still!

The record is held by one member who spent the night in jail.

Go to the lounge for this type of stuff.

I keep leaving my turn signal on ... for miles and miles. ha ha

Was doing 81 on I-75 weekend before last near Gaylord, and there in the median was a Michigan State patrol car. Thought my clean record was going down. Usually 79 and below is the safe bet. Not sure why he didn't light them up.

Last ticket? Probably ten years ago ... 5 over in a 65 zone, and that was generous to me.

Weak. I've been pulled over for speeding, what? 16 times? I've lost count. Never the V, though.

I just don't see how I could ever move back to the US. Driving 150 mph legally is so liberating.

My Valentine 1 (and vigilantly scanning eyes) have saved me from almost all encounters with a speeding ticket. I did get popped late at night last year for doing 11 over but the sneaky trooper had laser and popped me coming over a hill.

1 ticket for 3.5 years of V ownership isn't too bad actually!

Let's see, the V is still in the shop so, I've been driving the Impala.

I've gotten 4 tickets in 4 weeks since driving it (last 2 were last night!)! 2 for expired inspection (Impala wouldn't pass, needed a new PCM tune), 1 no front plate, and speeding (74 in a 60).

I'm going to fight the speeding (hire a lawyer) & I think I can get the others dismissed or reduced (mod money!!).

The speeding is suspect though because usually I can spot them and/or my detector detects them (Escort Qi45). My detector never went off & I have laser detection/jamming capabilities. I saw them coming up behind me & suddenly slow down, then they popped their radar, but I was already decelerating. They weren't behind me long enough to pace (I would've noticed them, it was very light traffic & no one typically passes me as I'm typically moving fastest). I know they have gotten ability to hit you from behind (http://radartest.com/article.asp?articleid=8500), but it still seems sketchy.

Ha...last time I got stopped was in high school (just a warning) for rolling thru stop sign <2mph...I'm 25 now and just bought the V down in TX last month. Got stopped on way back and interrogated in the police car why I was all the way in TX to buy a car. Got stopped for 70 in a 65, when the 70 mph speed limit sign was <1/4 mile ahead. Got a warning again lol

This will be a unique excuse if you are stopped when you get back-

*knocking madly on wood* I havent had any speeding tickets in the V yet, though I know that'll happen eventually. Did get a parking ticket about a week after I got it though for parking in the same spot in front of my favorite bar that I'd been parking in for 2 years. Hopefully that bad juju will hold off the ticket fairies for a little longer! */knocking madly on wood*
