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.

and this past summer I was pulled over in Illinois doing 80 in a 65


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.

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.


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!!!!! ;)
