If you were going to Jail I reckon you would be gone by now.
But I think you will be getting a nice little fine matey and a few points.

Its not like you were drinking and driving?

My Hubby got busted doing an extra 20 over in a construction area $500 fine no points.

Is this an act or what? In your other thread on the marriage-based visa forum you blew off this ticket as nothing but a minor inconvenience. Why the change of mindset?

Unlikely. But you're looking at a big fat fine, and probably some points. (I have no knowledge of the points system in Florida.) Hopefully not enough points to get your licence suspended,* but you'd better show up to court and try to argue it down somewhat.

* If he cited you for anything in addition to speeding you'll be cutting it very close indeed.

Yes..... You will go to jail and get rogered by Bubba when nobody is looking, I hear they are using crisp packets for condoms now so you will be fine (unless its salt and vinegar flavour). Then, when Bubba is finished, they will send you into the wilderness to break rocks with your bare hands. And as if that's not enough, they will make you watch episode after episode of Neighbours, Home and Away and Coronation Street.

The last time I was stopped for speeding I was out on an Highway 6 for a nice evening drive. As the needle jumped up to 80 mph I suddenly saw a flashing red and blue light behind me.

"There ain't no way they can catch me," I thought to myself and opened it up further. The needle hit 90, 100, 130 and finally 150 with the light still behind me. "What the hell am I doing?" I thought, and pulled over.

The cop came up to me, took my license without a word and examined it and the car. "I've had a tough shift and this is my last pull over. I don't feel like more paperwork so if you can give me an excuse for your driving that I haven't heard before you can go!"

"Last week my wife ran off with a cop," I said, "and I was afraid you were trying to give her back!"


yeah, I know, its an old one . . .

Good job you had no firearms on you....in FLA anything over 15 mph over the limit can be considered a misdemeanour offence if the officer chooses and any misdemeanour in FLA commited while in posession of a firearm is autmatically commuted to a felony with a mandatory 3 years in prison.

What does it say on the ticket he gave you?

Good luck.

Sign up with a driver school, and you won't have to pay the fine and no points on your insurance ,takes a couple of hours or you can do it on line. It cost about $75 . You are allowed to do this once a year for up to 5 years I think. My Hubby did it twice in the past 11 years. The last ticket he got was after Hurricane Charlie it was 4.30 a.m on his way to work and got a moving violation his speed 0 miles an hour

I don't mind speeding a bit, 75 or 80 in a 65 mph zone on the Interstate...but you don't thing that damn near DOUBLE the limit in a residential or buisiness area is maybe a bit dangerous...or maybe you just don't give a shlt about the rest of us out there?
