What is a best excuse for cop to avoid a ticket? Who has expirience?
It is always dangerous to assume that the laws of your state apply everywhere else.I have had a ton of tickets from 16-28...Lost my license once. I am now 32 and am pretty good about not getting tickets. My best advise to anyone is, never go over 14 over the speed limit. If the speed limit is 55, don't go faster than 69, if it's 65, don't go over 79....
Out of all 4 of the defensive driving course I was ordered to take by the courts, that was the one thing they drove into our heads.
They said County and City cops will USUALLY not bother you for anything less than 15 mph over the limit. Reason why is ,15 over is when it goes on your license as points anything less is just a $$$ ticket.
Now State Patrol will give you a ticket for absoulutely anything and you don't wanna speed around the State patrolat all.
Yes, I guess i didn't think about that, I have traveled quite a bit throughout the SouthEast and been good on the speeding issue because usually if I stick to that rule, most fo the time there is some idiot going much faster than me. But you are correct on the laws being different in other areas. I for the most parts just try to keep it less than 14 over and it serves me well.It is always dangerous to assume that the laws of your state apply everywhere else.
In most states speeding is a violation for which the conviction will result in points on your license, irrespective whethe that is 5 over or 25. Many have a surcharge of points if you are a certain amount over the limit or include reckless driving.
So your 14 mile over rationale is pretty much unfounded in most areas of the country. And if you're stopped, it won't wash as an excuse to say "hey they said on the forum that in Georgia I wouldn't get stopped for 12 over."
Being young, female and cute may all be ways to avoid a ticket, but they aren't exactly an "excuse" others might be able to try.
Congrats on the maturity and the lessons learned along the way.
Take care and enjoy the ride,
I am male,the police officer was female. That's why I was so surprised at the response. It took me off guard, but was a nice compliment, as I get older I don't get those compliments as much.Being young, female and cute may all be ways to avoid a ticket, but they aren't exactly an "excuse" others might be able to try.
Yea, i think that rings true with a lot of police. My wife has always been a speed demon and she never gets pulled over in the C320. I was used to drive a Volvo C70 convertible and never got pulled over, but my last pull over when I got the speeding ticket was in my Acura Integra that looks like a punks car, but I actually was driving it for the mileage while the gas was $4.I had a corvette for 6 years before buying the SLK and I have not had a speeding ticket in almost 20 years. And I always drive fast. I cant tell you how many times I have blown past highway patrol at 90+ and they just dont even seem to see me.
One time I was seen and the cop followed me off the freeway then about a half mile on surface streets before heading back. But no ticket.
I have known cops with corvettes and been told that a nice sports car gets a lot less attention when speeding than say a riced out Honda or a '78 Regal with blacked out windows.
With the vette I thought maybe they would look, see a middle aged guy with gray hair and just think 'harmless midlife crisis type'. But the tint on the SLK is very dark and they cant see inside unless they are right next to the car. I still get no attention. I am not complaining though. :thumbsup:
And that RED paint on the Acura doesnt help a darned bit.Yea, i think that rings true with a lot of police. My wife has always been a speed demon and she never gets pulled over in the C320.

In this car i am just begging to be pulled over for no reason. One more reason why I am selling it and opting for the C320
What are you the forum cop?so being hot is the only thing that has worked? why do you guys even post if you dont have anything to say? "dont drive fast" is not an excuse to get out of a ticket, he is assuming that he has already been pulled over, something that happens more in some places than other. sorry but you guys are lame thread hijaclers.
