k, speed racer 801...with a laundry list of tickets like that, you my friend should be the last person awarded a driver's licence. That is not cool, that is not funny, that is not whatever you want us to think it is. That is downright dangerous and ignorant.

I have 2 tickets for No front licence plate and improper display of front licence plate (bottom corner of windshield because I had no bumper mounting bracket). Both tickets were with the same car.

Last ticket was 4 years ago, 156kmh in a 100kmh zone. (approx 98mph in a 60mph)

Took it to court,had it reduced to 114kmh in a 100kmh zone, so about ~75 in a 60.

Been clean ever since that. That jacked my insurance rates and they're only just starting to drop and I'm 23 next month.

I think i will take the cake:

1. Speeding 45/25 plus blowing stop sign.
2. Felony Evading With Willful Disregard for Persons and Property
3. Wreckless driving reduced to unsafe turn.
4. Speeding 78/55 - Radar detector helped alot.. i was at 105.
5. No Seat Belt
6. Accident
7. Felony Evading
8. Speeding 75/55
9. Speeding 78/55
10. Speeding 54/35
11. Speeding 52/30
12. Speeding 57/40 Tail light out
13. Noise Ordinance Violation
14. Speeding 68/50
15. Speeding 50/30, License plate light, unsafe lane change, no registration in vehicle
16. Improper turn
17. Noise Ordinance Violation
18. Speeding 43/30
19. Speeding 64/40


Well i think thats it.. There is probably something i missed.. I fought alot of em actually and didnt do too bad.. but i would guess i have spent like 3k in fines this year.

Yeah how the hell do you still have your licence? Hell I've had mine suspended for almost 30 days now I get it back this SAT and It was my first offence.. I couldn't imagine getting all those offences like you did and still be on the road.

This cool thing happens when you live in utah and have ca DL they dont transfer often.. So they never show up as points.

im only 17 and i have about six tickets. first one was 126 mph in a 55. the second was disturbing the peace/loud exhaust third window tint. fourth was a warning for carrying a 44 under the seat. fifth one was for my system. and the latest one i got was because i was street racing an s10 i got a ticket for 85 in a 30 but i got it dropped because he didnt right the s10 a ticket. but hell the most important thing was that i tought that s10 not to mess with rednecks in rangers. lol

haha yeah your speed ratios are harsh though.. triple and double over.. eekk. those are not cheap..'


reminds me of getting pulled over at 110 in a construction zone (55) and i didnt get a ticket but it would have been like 800 - 1000 dollars.

so far, ive had a grand total of 4.

2 wreckless drivings.
1 speeding.
1 too fast for conditions.

got 1st wreckless b/c my friend alan passed a car behind me and clipped it when he pulled back in. wasnt my fault. got dropped.

2nd one i drifted out of a shopping center onto a major road and about hit the cop :X
that one stuck

the speeding one was a 53 in a 35, he pulled me after the 55 limit sign, got reduced to improper equipment.

the too fast for conditions was when i totaled the red ranger. doing 30 in a 35. dick head cop. we fought that one. bye bye

1 for failure to stop in an assured/clear distance. Went to court and had it lowered to impeding traffic. No more points but more money.

Most of those were pre radar detector since then i have only gotten 2 or 3 and the were laser shots :X so no stopping those with a radar detector even though it has a laser detector.. by the time you pick up laser your already f'ed

Yeah laser comes up way funny on the radar detectors.. 50 - 70% of laser shots are never even detected due to the size of the beam and the aim of the shot..

laser = l33t..

But there are ways around laser ;]

Most UHP and Sheriff run KA banded radar, and most city cops run laser.

So.....the car has to weigh 1500lbs to be legal? How does that work with, say, my Ghia? Curb weight stock was less than 2000lbs, and it doesn't take much to lose 500 lbs.

I'm not gonna get into my list of tickets, but most of them have stayed off my record. I usually average 2-3 a year. I will say this though, I got arrested and my car impounded for exhibition of acceleration. Tip: Don't smoke 'em up in front of the police station while the chief is taking a smoke break.
