94 in a 55 is no joke.

Don't speed kids. It'll just leave you in a state of depression.

**** my life.

this was highway ?

unless you were racing someone, or in a rush

going 94 is stupid, it wastes alooot of gas if your running a 4 banger

and it gets worse with the more cylinders you have

going about 80 gets you real good gas mileage

It was the Highway. Mainly in a rush to beat curfew. Though idiotic on my part, the police officer was a huge p3nis with legs.

So that's mainly what I'm really pissed about. My depression comes from the possiblility of losing my license. Paying a fee isn't ****. I make at least a good 300 for 2 weeks worth of work. But yeah I understand I was in the wrong. But yeah. I just need to vent right now....

I usually don't hit anywehere over 80 anyway. This was just the one occasion that I get p3nised. :)

Left lane = cops will watch your ***. Stay out of the left lane unless you're passing at a reasonable speed and you'll pretty much always be safe from cops.

so im guessing you didnt make curfew either lol

that sucks

i mean, going fast isnt the problem

im sure your a decent driver at best

because if you werent you would be going passed 75

just be smart with where you speed

most of the time you can tell where the cops are going to be

after an overhead bridge, big empty spots, exits, things like that

if your making money, buy a scanner it'll save you $$

and if your gonna get pulled over, make sure you put the scanner away while your still driving, you can get a ticket for having one because theyre illegal depending where you live

lmao you think the cops cant tell if your speeding at around 90 in a 55?

usually theres a 15mph leeway they give but you can definitely tell

if he was going around maybe 75-80, then maybe the cops couldnt tell but

over 90 is easy to spot

Are you seriously condoning the use of devices which allow you to step around speeding laws?

You do realise it's bull**** like this that causes selfish morons to cause the insane amount of road accidents/deaths each year?

Just slow the **** down, it's not like sticking to the speed limit will kill you. If you're going to be late, it's your fault for not leaving early enough. No johns, don't speed.

And you missed my point. Unless the road is deserted, you CAN'T do 90 in the right lane. Unless you have a magical car that can go through other cars.

Whole thing was:

The city I was in has a curfew of 12am. The city I was traveling to has a curfew of 11pm.

I was just trying my best to get out of that one city. Little did I kow that's the main city cops pull people over. I admit I was wrong and speeding is stupid.

The story behind this event was that:

I had 4 friends with me and we were going to a smashfest in a city about 45 minutes away from where they live. My Dad lives in that city so we were just gonna crash there for the night. Little did I know one of my friends had to be home by 10 so as kind as I am I take him home. By the time I droped him off it was about 10:20ish. So going back to the smashfest the curfew there is 11pm. So I just tried to make it back there and pick up my friends so we can go to my Dad's. about 20 minutes away from the venue, I got pulled over. I got searched. Sat in the cop's car for 30 minutes. Gave me the subpoena. And I was on my way.

Went 5 miles uder the speed limit the rest of the way home. So yeah. Now I'm scared ****less to speed. :)

do you drive either ? i mean really you cant do 90 in the right lane ?

me and my dad were going to pick up his new car, a pontiac g8 gxp
we were on the highway in his bmw 330i, he had never pushed that car all the way

so

it was crazy

oh and most of it was on the right lane

oh and hes a cop lol

VA Beach's (City I was traveling to) curfew for minors is 11pm. While in any other city around there has a curfew of 12am.

Stupid right?

P.C. Jona, you're really looking like a douche in this thread. "Just be smart about speeding and do it right, durr hurr"
I would refrain from speeding. The speed limit isn't there to ruin your fun, it's to make it save, but idiots like you don't get that and just go on your speeding rampage anyway.

As for you Rhan, you didn't have much of an option. Get beaten by curfew or get caught speeding. You got both in the end. Not much to say except plan better next time.

Whole thing is that my friend's mom said he could have stayed. Then tehy changed thier mind. So that was random.

But now I realise. They probably wouldn't have pullled me over if I was past curfew. Speeding though is obvious.... :(

oohh

but when your driving its not like theres an arrow on your car that says minor on it lol
when stuff like that happens you should just drive careful
and not attract the cops lol

but yea thats pretty stupid

But of course, I just don't have a need for speed.
its not about the need for speed
its about being a good driver
your not going to hurt anyone if you know your car and its limits

ofcourse theres the chance that someone else can get in your way and do something stupid to hurt you both, but thats not so likely

on the highway, 85% of the drivers get scared and are passive, meaning if someone wants to pass them, theyll hit the brakes get out of the way and let them pass
you just have to be confident about what your doing, dont hesitate unless you know you wont make it.

Stop encouraging people to break the law and stop pressing enter twice halfway during your sentence. You're not special.

Speed limits are there because of calculations performed.

There's a thinking distance, where you're taking time to react and still going. This distance of course increases with greater velocity. Not good.

Then there's the stopping distance. When you hit the brakes, it takes your car longer to decelerate at higher velocities, and you'll travel further. Again, not rocket science.

Then put into account thinking distance + stopping distance, and you'll realise that you're signifcantly more at risk, either yourself or whoever you might get in an accident with.

Here's a little factoid. Hit someone at 30mph, and there's about an 80% chance they'll live. Hit them at 40mph, and there's about a 80% chance they'll die. Just a thought.

No, that's germany.

They only type like this be special and obnoxious. You definitly succeeded in the latter.

Driving isn't a right with which you can do as you please. It is a privelege and with that privelege comes responsibility and restrictions. These simple rules that anyone can follow are there to not only protect others, but you as well. If you're too selfish to drive under these rules and force everyone to adapt to your selfish driving style, you shouldn't have that privelege.

VA has some of the hardest speeding laws. They are always out to get you. Be prepared to pay more than 300 for that ticket. Also, to the guy who suggested a radar detector, in VA you can get into SERIOUS trouble for having one of those.

Speeding is easy and in most cases very unintentional. I got caught going 83 in a 55 (I was pissed because it was 65 a few miles before and I didn't notice the speed limit change.) But don't think that because you are a good driver you can go fast. If that is how you think, you are not a good driver. If you are driving 90 and some jerk cuts you off and you have to swerve and side swipe somebody. It is YOUR FAULT. The speed limit is there to give you time to react and safely slow down.

I'm ok with the fine. Money ain't a issue. I make that in 2 weeks as long as I work weekends. But yeah what I'm expecting right now:

-License taken until I'm 18 or 21.
-Driver's school.
-Community Service.
-A fine of about 350+ dollars.

On the optimistic side. I'm sort of glad he stopped me. Otherwise I could have done something worse that just speed. The cop was a **** but he did have me realise the dangers in speeding.

You wanna say a bit more instead of stating the obvious? :/

And technically it was 39mph over speed limit. That one makes a big difference. Especially when a potential consequence is going to juvie.

a radar detector/scanner

it picks up the signal that police radar guns shoot out

usually from a good quarter mile away which gives you enough time to slow down

they go for around 150 bucks for a good one

I'm not entirely sure if it's true, but my mom once got pulled over for speeding and the cop that had pulled her over told her that you can get clocked from a mile away. If that cop wasn't lying (which I'm assuming he wasn't, seeing as he was absolutely nowhere around her when she was speeding), then that means he more than likely wouldn't have been saved even with a scanner if it was at night. Just thought I'd point that out.

Yes, idiots like you.

Disregarding the fact that you spelled "idiots" wrong, you are STILL a moron. I've seen other topics where you had some stupid ideas but I just disagreed and it was really nothing of importance, but here you are condoning stupid driving (yes, driving a lot over the speed limit IS stupid driving) telling people that they don't know how it is to drive if they think it's wrong to do so, and you need to "grow a pair" if you aren't disregarding the law.

That is blatant stupidity.

The sad thing is, if you ever get into a crash due to your stupid driving (which you inevitably will if you never notice the err of your ways), you'll probably end up killing some innocent person doing everything right and you'll walk away without a scratch.

Driving is NOT for enjoyment, it's NOT to just have fun, and instead of convincing yourself that you're being put down by the man when told to drive the freaking speed limit, you should actually try to stay near the speed limit and drive safely so the metal vehicle you're driving, which weighs at least a ton, doesn't kill someone.

This is EXACTLY why I don't like driving. People are stupid and no matter how much you try to follow the rules of the road and do everything perfectly, there's always going to be some moron who doesn't realize that a car isn't a toy or that alcohol and drugs do, in fact, impair your driving.

Good post Firus, I agree.

By the way all you stupid drivers out there, if you want to endanger yourself doing something "fun," then go skydive or something. Don't be selfish and foolish and endanger other people's lives as well.

I like how you said the cop was a ***** to you.

For going 39 miles over the speed limit.

Which in many cases is considered a federal offense.

You're lucky he nabbed you with only speeding.

More then 30 miles over the speed limit is usually enough to get you reckless endangerment.

If anything he was a godsend to you.

Haha, exactly.

Pretty much you were being a ***** to your friends in the car and anyone else driving on that highway for putting them in danger. Chew on THAT why don'tcha.

Got reckless driving speed.

In a sense it was smart because I would get to my destination quicker.

But it was foolish because of the dangers/risks for such acts.
