So did you get a speeding ticket too?
Yup too tickets. I'm not mad at the officer, he's just doing his job. I'm mad at myself for not noticing him until I was almost on him.

Let David Sprecher take care of your legal needs. For $100 he will probably get you out of it. Call him at 713.639.2600. He has taken care of my last 6 or 8.

Um... actually the speed limit is the speed that you go when all conditions are perfect (as you described).

I agree.
They aren't that strict on me since I just make it up on the back end of the day.

But some people don't, can't or won't. or run into heavy traffic, etc. I was just giving a reason as why people would speed to work...

of course there is always just the thrill of going fast....

wah i was doing somethign illegal, the cops busted me on it. they suck, not me.
i hear this one all day

yeah, it sucks. either dont do it, or do it, get caught, and dont expect much sympathy. if i was a patrol cop, i would crack down on traffic law as well. we have about a 1 to 1 ratio on RIP threads per day.

we might as well sticky a dead or seriously injured rider thread. :(

so I'm confused...


this thread is directed at cops being ???



take responsibility for your actions... the speed limit is posted for a reason... you chose to break the speed limit regardless of what it was... so chose to accept the consequinces...


everyone speeds ( I get that )... but when everyone is driving and they look down at their speedo and it shows a number... you know that you are speeding; so if you don't let off the throttle, then you have made the choice to make someone else do their job...

it was your fault you got the ticket, not the officers... he would have never had a reason to pull you over if you weren't breaking the law... period

yes, some officers give you a 'grace' in speed... but not all, so I wouldn't judge my driving based on that





this type of "complaining" reminds me of the riders that go down cause they ride over their head.... then jump up and say "there was something in the road"




just man up and say I fked up... and either learn your lesson.. or stop complaining

The OP was just voicing frustration at himself (and posted a message declaring that) - others saw something else and started down a whole other path.

Its not a waste of time... Its the STATE LAW that if you pull soeone over with no insurance the officer SHALL (In legal terms that mean you better, you will, you must) issue a citation.... If not its the cops and im sure nobody here wants to loose their job for something that simple...

its always the cops fault he caught someone breaking the law.. its always the cagers fault when theres an accident.. when i crashed my bike last year... i didnt blame the city for putting a stop sign on the street... i blamed my self for being stupid...

BTW, there are no such things as quotas. Believe me, if there were a quota, I'd be writing them all night. I write on average 2 tickets per month.. That's pushing it for me.

Tickets = court = overtime. That's pretty much it. You don't get paid extra PER ticket. Writing a ticket just gets you/us in court. So win/lose/rescheduled, we get $$$$$. Go ahead and spend your money on Sprecher or whoever you want. Doesn't make a difference as we get paid either way. Make a fool out of me on the stand. I don't care. You just helped me buy something for my bike,
