The revenue generators left me alone on my 3,500-mile January road trip. Very good news! I've gone on a few more short road trips since then & they've left me alone, as well. No harassment tolerated!

Going on a road trip in mid-January. The revenue generators better leave me alone. They have on the past few road trips & that's great news: they're following their own laws. Thank goodness. Pathetic punks.

It is not speed that kills!

It is when you hit something too fast, or it hits you too fast!

The patrolman said I was doing 75, but he cited me for doing 70 in a 55mph zone.

I haven't gotten a speeding ticket since 1986 when I had 5 of them in less than 12 months. I was guilty on the first 4. On the fifth one I was traveling with the traffic with cars ahead and behind me and the officer pulled me over and the rest kept going. Six months later I saw in the newspaper that he had been fired when they discovered that he was writing bad tickets. I really don't know how fast I was going because my speedometer was broken but I was probably driving below the speed limit. Sunday afternoon in a line of cars in a 45 zone and we knew a policeman was with us. Don't remember the fine but my license was suspended for 1 month, I had to go to driving school and my insurance was cancelled and cost some high amount to have reinstated. It was high then for 3 or 5 years I think. I rarely drive over 75 now (in a 70) and haven't had a ticket since then. I guess that bad cop slowed me down.

I have been driving for over 40 years and have never been pulled over for speeding. I have never had a ticket for anything, except a registration. I am a good driver, used to speed to work, but don't do so anymore. Be safe and stay alive!

I was going 10 mph over the limit. I was passing someone,which was fine but then I did not slow down after that. The officer pulled me over and made sure to tell me that I did not slow back down like I should of.

The last time I was pulled over I was doing 28 Km/hr over the speed limit going up a hill, and the RCMP caught me at the top. I pulled over, no chase, no attitude or bullshit, and I got it reduced to 18 over.

I should'a named dropped because I was attending a wedding and the guy was a RCMP officer. Might have gotten off. :P :D

Probably about 18 mph over, but the officer knocked it down to reduce the fine.

In some places you get your car impounded and a huge fine for going 200 km/hr. In Germany, no one cares. The laws of physics are the same in both places.

What's the difference? REVENUE GENERATION!!! PATHETIC!

seriously if you get caught doing 5 mph or less, the cop is a real dick or having a bad day. I've got a ticket for 57 in a 45 and 80 in a 65 both in los angeles.

Lionsuck

If you or any other visitors to Ontario ever get caught doing what you did you will lose your licence & car on the spot for 7 days. You will also face a fine - minimum $2,000, max $10,000. This is the penalty for doing 50 km (30 mph) over the limit.

This is for real. Just a heads up.

I was doing 135MPH in a 55MPH zone. He wrote me for 20 over. He was appreciative that I pulled over and waited for him rather than a big chase. Nice state trooper.
