    i went 72 in a 50, got a 288 fine which is a automatic 5 points to your licencse.. I just went to court and pleaded guilty on the charge. No traffic violationsfor me for the next 6 months and my record is clear. Didnt have to go to traffic school or anything, just reported to my court date.

    it depends on the state dude. i doubt you'll have to do classes, but expect the ticket to be around $200+

    i go to school up in north dakota, and they charge you $1 per mph you are speeding [​IMG]

    I dont know why cops bother you if your 15mph over on the highway when they know there going to find someone doing atleast 25 over in about 5 minutes.

    Got caught doing 80 on a 35, damn that Triboro bridge ramp[​IMG], luckily I hada PBA card and was let go, but the damn cop took my card which led me to getting a ticket for doing a rolling stop(when you stop and go instead of stopping,waiting 3 seconds and then going) at a stop sign about 7 months later[​IMG].

    Only if you have a good case. I've heard stories of judges doubling the fine.

    I don't know. I've never challenged a ticket.

    Check the ticket.. sometimes they offer you take a class or something and the fine gets reduced and they take away points from your license.

    During college, I got clocked at 95 on a 65. The ticket came out to a few hundred, but NYS passed some law that if you get 5 or more points within an 18-monthperiod, you have to pay $75 per point (or something like that). The ticket gave me 6 points, so I paid the fine PLUS another few hundred for that new law.It's 2 points per 10mph you're over or something. A few months later, I got clocked at 85 on a 65. The cop came back to my car with my stuff and said(while laughing) "Mr. Kim! Slow down!" and he gave me a ticket for going 75 on a 65. If he left it at 85, my license would've been suspended. Iwas caught both times on the I-80 in the Binghamton area. Those two tickets cost me nearly $1,000.

    Learning the lesson the hard way + just getting older = driving slower. I've been ticket-free for about six years. My insurance is about $2,500 for theentire year...should go down soon.

    Taking a defensive-driving course should give you a discount on your insurance. Not sure if it does anything to your points.

    Well my first ticket was $300 for supposedly doing 65 on a 35. [​IMG]
    Went to court but the cop didn't show up so I was free to go. [​IMG]
