You're right, it was stupid. But there's no reason you need to rip up your license and quit on your Escort. You can keep modding your Escort, make it look spiffy and all that, and race it at the track or show it. No need to quit on something you love.

I knew that...I did...

Sorry to hear that then. Slow down ;)

If you can/want to, spend the money on an Escort Passport 8500. Radar detectors aren't always guaranteed since you can always be paced by an stupid unmarked trooper (I'm not bitter). I've also noticed cops are starting to only turn their radar on when they come around a corner so you don't have any warning. That aspect, however, has kept me really alert when I'm on the highway which is a good thing to be all around.

My friend got pulled over for 107 in a 55, he lost his license for a little while but he had to go to jail for 10 days, so he went to jail on the weekends, and slept. He was 18. Oh, he went to Florida to get a new license, he thought it'd be okay then, so I dunno.

Hey before you panic too much just remember then when you turn 18, your lisence is wiped clean so to say. Insurance will never be good until your 20, but at most you'll loose your lisence until your 18. Just keep your car and work on it while you wait. My friend lost his lisence for over 2yrs and spent the time making his Celica look sick.

g'luck though

damn man... I feel where ya are coming from, I got busted in my 92 Spirit (my stock-looking sleeper) but he said there was no way in hell he could have clocked me at what he did, so he just wrote me a ticket for 75 in a 45.... he said he clocked me at 132 I had just installed a new exhaust and was seeing what it could do... but I was stupid...

oh and at what age did this happen???? 21! 6 months ago in fact, my 1st and hopefully last ticket, cost me out the ass to get it wiped clean, but I'm still driving, just a little more careful on how/when/where I open it up.

Yeh, you can always either a) supboena the officer and hope they don't show or b) use the old "subpoena the officer, ask how long ago his radar was calibrated and shit" defense. I've heard that's worked a few times, but never used it myself. Try and get one of those things from radio shack that splits your cigarette lighter into two slots, not sure how power gets divided, but it can't be all that bad. Good luck.

youa are lucky, i think is some places anythign 20 over the limit is a felony. you young no need to drive that fast. you need ot be careful, use the money next time for a trip to europe and and take a ride onthe autobahn be cheaper. but be careful. its nicer to no that a cop got you and not a flat tire.

sorry for the luck bro

I lost my licence too when I was 16. I was going 99 KM/H in a 50 zone (That zone is now 70...). I lost 5 points and since I wasn't going twice the speed limit I didn't have to go to court for dangerous driving. Anyway, my insurance doubled for the next 9 years (im now 22). That ticket will follow me the rest of my life and it's the main reason why I drive used 10 year old cars. I don't feel like paying twice the insurance when i'll probably never use them anyway. Good luck with your ticket!
