Who cares. A rich pampered athlete is kind of a dick?!?! I'm shocked! Hopefully he can turn the speed up on the field - all I care about.

I go 90 in a 65 all the time.

Jeremy Stevens got off of a rape charge for being a football player, Cole deserves to get off for a few speeding tickets.


I got off looking at Greg Jennings once

er.....umm

wrong thread?

Bah, this is a small ticket. When I got mine back to back (same freaking weekend by the same cop on the same stretch of highway, consecutive citation numbers too) tickets for going 78 and 77 in a 55 it was a $172.10 ticket. That was an expensive moronic weekend if I ever must say so myself.

Hmmm........so.......you made that cop's weekend!!! Also looks like your a slooooow learner!!! :compress:


hah ... hey i have good reason!

I had a 93 Z24 drop top that had one of those stupid racing chips in it to make it accelerate faster.

On HWY 57 about a mile or two before it drops to 45, I thought the engine missed so I slowed down a bit, then slammed the pedal... before I knew it I was nearing 90 so I let off the gas. I was going to just coast down to 45 and that's about the time the cop caught me.

On my way OUT of town. I saw the 55 MPH sign and was doing 45.... slammed the gas again figuring the cop wouldn't be in the same spot. He wasn't, but he wasn't far away lol... he ended up getting me again. The citation numbers were like 03CT013211998 and 03CT013211999. The look on the judges face was priceless when he noticed it.

He asked me something... probably like what is your problem... I just looked up and said "Sir, that was really irresponsible and ... I screwed up". I'm not sure his response but I know it was not favorable.

Sure wouldn't mind that $350 now though lol

"Stupid racing chips".......LOLOL!!! Was that a "Dorito?"

... I was pulled over in Illinois doing 80 in a 65 (being in the middle of a group that had briefly sped up to pass some old lady... I drive the sporty car with the out of state license plate). Traffic laws and their enforcement are bullshit.


Umm. You were ACTUALLY speeding. You got caught. How was that bullshit in any way?

Seems like the penalties for speeding in America are way too lenient. No wonder so many people do it.

Here, going 20 mph over the limit (32 km/hr) is about a $600-800 fine and something like 5 demerit points (out of a max of 12).

I've gotten one speeding ticket, and it was in high school. I was racing a friend home and the state trooper pulled us both over at the same time. Then my driver's ed teacher just so happened to be driving by and decided to pull over with a car load of kids. I was going 77 in a 55 but he knocked it down to 65 in a 55.

Notice how I said, "...and their enforcement." It's bullshit because at any given point most people are going 5 to 10 over depending on the road and don't try to tell me otherwise. I've been going the speed limit and nothing more since getting my last ticket and it's fairly often that I'm quite literally the slowest driver on the road. Yes, I was speeding. But so were 80% of the cars. I was pissed that the cop went out of his way to pick me out (passed a couple other cars going the same speed to go get me... they were minivans probably with small kids going on vacation, I learned the hard way that I'm going to be first). It's also bullshit that my friend was sent home with a warning going 50 over when I got tickets for 9 and 15 over.

Keys.........it's the luck of the draw. Some cops will cut you some slack, some won't.
I go 5 over at the MOST, no matter what the other people are doing. I look at it this way........if you are driving 100 miles to get somewhere, how much faster will you get there by going 10-15 over the speed limit? 10 minutes maybe? Is that worth taking the chance of a big fine and points on your license, which also brings up you insurance costs?
I have been driving for 33 years. Know how many speeding tickets i have got over that time? ZERO. The only times i came close was what i posted earlier when i worked at the Sentinel.
If you don't break the law, you don't really have anything to worry or bitch about.
Just because everyone else is doing it, that doesn't make it right.

If you drive the speed limit, you won't get pulled over. I figured that out about 10 years ago and haven't had a speeding ticket since.

You save a lot more money when you don't speed too. Its a lot less stressful driving around without looking over your shoulder at cops cuz you have no license.

I'll add to this.

I've known people who cried their way out of speeding tickets. Now, if that doesn't ruffle your feathers...

Cole must be a lightweight. I got pulled over a couple of years ago on US 41 in Appleton for going 88 in a 65 (had out of state plates - Ontario - so I thought I was cooked). Cop was actually a decent guy though. He asked if I had any connections to Wisconsin and I smiled and said "just the Packers." He looked at me, and then looked away, but I could tell he was laughing. Came back 5 minutes later, still smiling, with a written warning and told me to slow down.

I always wondered how fast you had to be going to get a ticket in Illinois. I always thought it was a lot faster than that though.

Cheesey I know what you're saying and I agree with you. That's why I won't go over any more and even before the ticket I rarely exceeded 5 over. But the inconsistencies still piss me off.

It used to be... I remember when I was younger and I'd go up from St. Louis to Sturgeon Bay with my family and my dad would be going 85 to 90 the whole way... never once pulled over.

I understand what you are saying.........you never know if the cop will write you up or not. They let some go, and some they nail. Some cops are understanding, some not.

The only time a cop let me go was with a pretty pink slip. I I have a hard time believing anyone who says they got away without a ticket!!! I got 27 of them bastards in a four year span that totaled more than 3k in fines.

Very valuable lesson learned. Don't let an 18 yr old have a convertible and don't let him have a truck that he can take off roading and rack up trespassing fines.

speed limits in illinois - 65 on major highways for cars & 55 on major highways for semi's, vehicles hauling trailers, campers, & motorhomes. pisses off the truckers but it's a helluva lot better than the bottleneck y'all have up there in wisconsin letting EVERYBODY do 65!!!!! ;)
