    Default Speeding Fines...Snagged !!

    I had just said to myself " Geez...you are pushing it man, you better slow down.."
    Less than two minutes later...OPP SUV at the side of the Highway ..SNAGGED !
    Fuck.
    I was on my way home from Toronto, happy as hell, listening to Sting and The Police Greatest Hits. Then it all comes crashing down.
    I was doing 148 km/h on a 100 designated highway; 2km/h more and I would have been bagged for sport racing speed and had my car taken away.
    As it sits now, I got 4 demerit points and a $332 fine.
    Insurance will be going up for sure.
    I am going to fight it, go to court..because 90% of the time you get at least a minor concession of some kind when you challenge it. Mrs. OZZ does it all the time, and if you get really lucky and the cop doesn't show up for court for some reason - you get off completely.
    I don't give a shit about the fine, but the demerit points is going to cost me hundreds of dollars in insurance premiums.
    Just so you guys know, I am not a reckless driver. Yes, I like to drive fast, but I rarely go as fast as I was today. I was just trying to bypass a bunch of transports who had me boxed in and when I come around the bend BAM !
    Cops usually give people a break and take a few clicks off for them to reduce the fine.
    Unless you are an ex con who has a CPIC come up on screen with the ** CAUTION ! VIOLENCE** warning , a rap sheet that is quite lengthy and a very nasty looking blade with a bone handle affixed to your passenger sun visor ( a precaution against car jackers !)
    Like I said, FUUUUUUCK !!!

    I'm up for speeding month after next as well, 50 in a 30mph, despite it being a dual carriageway A road on an industrial stretch.
    Don’t say, “It’s been a good day” till sundown.
    Don’t say, “She’s a good wife” till she’s buried.
    Don’t say, “It’s a good sword” till you’ve tested it.
    Don’t say, “She’s a good girl” till she’s married off.
    Don’t say, “The ice is safe” till you’ve crossed it.
    Don’t say, “The beer is good” till you’ve drunk the last of it.

    From Hávamál, a Norse poem

    I do drive fast, but I'm usually very smart about it.
    This time it will cost me.

    Ozz - well deserved. I love cops. I hate people who drive over the speed limit. It is exactly idiots like you and NoB who ruin other people's lives.

    Your screen name is Officer Peppa..and you are a squealer and crybaby.
    And you love cops...
    No, really ???

    Not that I really give a shit what you think, but there is a difference between driving fast and driving dangerously, that is why they are distinct under the law.
    My driving falls into the latter category.

    I am thinking about getting a police scanner too.
    I used to have one, they change the codes all the time so they can become a useless tool very quickly unless you are very good with them.
    I had a radar detector years ago, but it got taken from me by the cops.

    Maybe?

    The speed limit on the road in question? 70 miles per hour.

    So fuck off. These speeding tickets are revenue generation. That is it.
    Fuck Yeah !
    Suck it, Peppa !!

    Got a better detector and use Waze on my phone. Works good so far. Can't wait until May. This has impinged on my religious satisfaction.
    This is my first speeding ticket in about eight years, believe it or not.
    Like I said, I am usually quite smart about it and pick my spots well.
