Well ladies and gents, I found out today that eventhough the speedometer on my car goes to 85 MPH I can at least reach 92 MPH. Problem is I wish I wouldn´t have found that out on a road that is marked 50 MPH, and by having it clocked by a police radar. I would like to thank the cops who pulled me over for being so understanding, and not hauling my ass off to jail, or giving me a $300 speeding ticket. I know there were atleast two, since I saw at least two squad cars parked behind me, and two different cops came to my window at different times. I do have to go to court for not having my insurance card though. Damn AZ and the manditory insurance laws. I think if you can´t afford to fix your car after it is wrecked, or you are too embarassed to drive a car with a few dings you shouldn´t be driving anyway. People know that if they drive there is a possability there car might get wrecked so if they want to insure it that´s one thing, but it shouldn´t be mandatory. Also since it is mandatiry how is it fair that if I hit a guy with no insurance and a suspended license I still have to pay to get his car fixed and have my insurance go up. But enough complaining, I was really lucky that that is all I was cited for. 42 mph over, although it was on an empty straight road in the middle of the night, is a bit too fast, and I think I will definatley be keeping my eye one the guage a little more. But get me on a track and all of that is out the window. By the way, Radio Shack radar detectors SUCK ASS. I was only a quarter mile away from the cop car when it finally bleeped and by then I had just enough time to slow down enough to pull over right as I passed it.
