    Not looking for flames, just advice on what to do now. So i was running 114mph in a 70mph on highway 5, 3am with barely any cars on the road about 3-4 weeksgo. I have yet to receive a ticket in the mail, and the court issued is in socal and i live in norcal. NT, i just want to make sure that everything i shouldbe doing next is right. what should i do now? should i call the court and ask them to change the court locations? is it normal for not receiving anything inthe mail this long? or am i not going to get anything? how much am i looking at my insurance rates? speeding ticket cost? sorry for all the noob questions,thanks.

    so the cop stopped you and didnt give you a ticket? he said to expect one in the mail? what happened that night with the officer? what did he/she say do etc.

    Depends on what state. Hire a lawyer (doesnt need to be top notch) and have them argue and fight the DA for something lower. My friend got caughtdoin 123 in a 55, hired a lawyer, got hit with 2 violations and a ~$1000 fine, after being charged with a $5000 fine and misdemeanor speeding, recklessdriving, and some sort of endangerment.

    Edit: Unphased4 is right, you're getting arrested. My friend got his info taken at the scene and didnt go to jail for the night only cause they werealready full.

    They're getting a warrant for your arrest. Going at that speed is a felony and you're going to get put behind bars. RIP

    100 feels scary to me. 115 is just insane.

    i was pulled over going 94 in a 65 on 5...ticket was 350+ no traffic school if youre going 22+mph over the limit. you have no option on court location. youcan do trial by declaration (mail). no misdemeanor for mine, but you were going alot faster. good luck.
