coming into this thread way late, and am totally lost. What the fsck is a "surcharge!?"


EDIT: nevermind, I see my question has already been answered. I was unaware that Texas had a points system.

coulda been much worse....on a ride recently they put the county bracelets on a rider and then wouldn't let us find a way to get the bike out of there b/c we didn't have any extra riders. I would fight the ticket b/c if he didn't clock you how did he gauge your speed?

just the price "we" pay......it's not like you/i don't speed.........gotta pay the tax once in a while.......

and since your riding w/o an M you were just lucky.......now it's "harder" to get your license in that you have to take MSF class now, the 2 day one.

I've never heard of this. Doesn't seem fair to me. If the cop is having a bad day, life, etc he can just take it out on motorists without real evidence. I would have asked him if I could have seen the display on his radar in front of his car where the camera is running. He wouldn't have gotten me to admit that I was doing 80 when I wasn't. I don't know, I would have tried fighting it personally.
