    Default Getting out of a speeding ticket thread

    There is another thread talking about getting a first speeding ticket. It gave me an idea. Why don't we share our experiences on how we got out of a ticket whether it be speeding or anything else pertaining to slipping through the jaws of justice.

    OK, I'll start...

    About 3 years ago or so, I go to pick up a friend of mine. He had never ridden in my "slightly" modified '98 Dakota R/T. He wanted me to get on it and show him what it could do so I agreed. Anyways, we were at a stop light and then we turned onto a road going up a hill. I hammer down and take off like a rocket ship. Next thing I know, I got a smokey hot on my tail. He follows me for about a mile or so, and then flips his lights on. The first thing I do is ask my buddy if he's got anything on him. He says no. I pull over and get my license, registration, and insurance out.

    I say to him, "I bet you pulled me over because I got on it a little back there, huh?"

    "Yes, and for speeding. I clocked you doing 45 in a 35 and you were accelerating."

    "Well, let me explain, sir. I have been having this problem recently with a predetonation problem with my engine at higher rpm's. I just had it in the shop and was seeing if they had fixed it properly. I figured that there wasn't any traffic around so I could see if the problem had been cured. As far as speeding goes, I'm really sorry about that. I just got new tires (which I had) and when I take it back tomorrow, I'm going to have them recalibrate my speedometer."

    He shined his flashlight down at the tires, noticed they were brand spanking new, and went back to his car. He came back a minute or two later and handed me back my stuff, and warned me to slow down. He said that they knew my truck and that I won't be so lucky next time.

    They still have never got me! (knock on wood

    What is SCMODS?

    Anyways, Rebel, you're not the only one saving for an SRT-8 Charger!

    I got more stories to share, but the one I posted is my favorite. I'll post a few more later after other people share...

    The only time I recall not getting a ticket was somewhere out in the middle of nowhere in Nebraska (or was it South Dakota) at night and smoky pulls me over to tell me I have a taillight out and just as he's wrapping up he says something like "Oh, and you were going a little bit over the speed limit, too" or something like that.

    If I told my story, it would make me out to be more of a dumbass and a redneck than all of my previous posts combined.

    Just know that it involved a roadblock, bad pot, no operator's license, and a hog farm.

    And I drove away.

    I posted this in the ticket thread by mistake

    I was driving over the road for Schneider at the time. They are the big day glo orange trucks that could pass for a DOT semi in most states.

    Anyway, I was coming home for the weekend, bobtailing (sans trailer) and I got pulled over on the way in to a small town. The cop said he clocked me doing 72 in a 55. I told him that it was utterly impossible for me to have been going 72.

    He did the typical, "radar's don't lie" routine.

    Most people would have said, well, lemme see the radar. But I knew I didn't have to. When he asked for my ID so he could run my info and write a ticket, I refused. He told me that he could arrest me for refusing to ID myself.

    So I asked him again; "how fast was I going?"

    "You were going 72 in a 55." he said

    "You see officer," I responded with a sly gring and chuckle. "That's, again, completely impossible; as a matter of fact, I'd say you're liar and can prove it, without looking at your radar."

    As I started to hand him my log book and CDL, with a cocky, 'gotcha now' look in his eye, he said; "you're calling me a liar?"

    "Yessir, I am." There is no way your radar, clocked me doing 72 miles an hour, bobtailing in a Schneider National company truck." I said confidently.

    "Considering that all company trucks for Schneider solo drivers are governed at 65 mph on the foot and 62.5 on the cruise; and I had my cruise control activated.

    "Either your radar hasn't released the last speeder you caught doing 72 mph; or you haven't done the daily pitchfork tuning, that is required under Iowa statutes for that specific radar gun."

    As I handed him my certification card, for use of the same radar gun that I use as a reserve deputy, his cocky look was replaced by a pale white frown and; "Well the speed limit is 55, so slow down next time." As he handed back my log book, CDL and certification card.




    Sometimes it is great to be smarter than the average bear.

    Anyone who didn't get SCMODS, I highly recommend sitting down with a case of beer and a few buddies, and a copy of "The Blues Brothers." The original, not the steaming pile of shit that poses as a sequel.

    The only way I've EVER gotten out of a ticket is by having a hot chick in the car with me. Happened twice. Best incident was in Chicago, my girl and I are having a discussion about how girls always get out of tickets by showing some cleavage, batting an eyelash, etc. While having this discussion, we blow thru a stop sign - where a Chicago cop is idling.

    Now, lemme tell ya - Chicago cops aren't known for their sense of humor - once again, watch The Blues Brothers. So, when we get pulled over, I'm not looking forward to this. My lady friend just hikes her shirt a bit lower, gives the cop an eyeful, and next thing you know we're on our way.

    I lost that argument, real fast. Amazing what a nice rack can accomplish!
    Nothing to see here.

    Well, there was a good period, 'bout five years or so, I could get out of any ticket. My neighbor during that time was a DEA agent, and a good friend. Just gave him the ticket and it was taken care of.

    Since then, I have been giving to the Mississippi Fraternal Order of Police and displaying their decal on my rear window, and this along with my Desert Storm Veteran tag works well too.
