so we are in the middle of moving this weekend and we are busy taking loads down to our new place. Well I was driving the chevy blazer and my wife was driving my car. So we are driving down main street and I realize I have never heard the sound of my car from the outside. So I motion my wife to take off at WOT and I punch it so I can kind of keep up and hear....well one minute later we both got pulled over but two different cops, one that saw us and other that was down the street.
so she gets pulled over by the cop that saw and the other one pulls me over. The one that pulls me over says I was doing 60 and was racing...blah blah blah. Well I personally don't think I was doing 60 so I argue a little bit. Cop takes a few minutes and comes back with a ticket, says he is only going to write me up for 10 over. He doesn't give me a racing ticket, the guy was actually pretty cool.
So here is the thing. I know I was in the wrong for speeding and I am totally willing to pay the ticket, but I think I might have a few options.
He told me I can go to traffic school and the ticket won't show up on my record, this is probably what I will do. But the other cop told my wife he clocked her at 60, well if she was going 60 then there is no possible way I was going 60 as well, the blazer couldn't keep up with the ///M if my life depended on it. So here is what I think, if he clocked her going 60 there is no way he even clocked me at all. Do you think it would be worth going to court and trying to fight my ticket or should I just pay it and go to traffic school.
ya u can go for drivin school and get it taken off..my bro had 12 points on his record(the max until you get ur lin. taken away) and he had to take it to get his lin. back and he has a clean record now of points

dont fight it? are you crazy? #1 first determine whether or not he actually clocked you, #2, even if he didnt, check on the last time his radar gun was calibrated (my dad has gotten many people off on that alone) #3, fines arent the problem, its points, goto driving school if you must, and try to fight the wifey's ticket
the more I think about the more he didn't cut me a break, if he clocked my wife at 60 in the M3 the most I was doing was 50, max. So really there is no break, speed limit was 40. I might fight but most likely I won't.

My last one was dropped competely. An atty friend of mine knew someone at the DA's office. He made a call and the DA "declined to presecute". The atty didn't charge me anything (but I bought he and his wife a $50 Olive Garden gift certificate since they are friends/coworkers of mine). That was much better than I expected. The key thing is keeping it off your record, one way or another.
