    Just got the bill for a speeding ticket I received while driving a rental car a few weeks back...$369.00 OUCH! Another $59.00 if I opt for traffic school (which I probably will), then what, maybe another $30.00 or so to pay for the traffic school.

    Oh well, my fault I guess.

    You must have been rolling! That sucks...

    I was just thinking about that possibility today so I went into cruise mode and kept an eye out.

    Sounds to me like your taking the speeding ticket money out of the wrong fund. Isn't there a food fund? Shelter fund?

    Ha! Thanks for that, LMAO. Christmas bonus coming up that I had planned to put away, a good chunk will now go towards this damn ticket.

    You must have been riding like you stole it.

    That sucks, I got one in 1993 in Japan that cost me $780 (80,000 yen). I was surprised they did not take me to jail, 126 in a 60. Christmas was smaller that year.

    That's the only thing the Donut Squad is good for.

    Gee, thanks for the lecture, but the county court and CHP pretty much covered that already....hence the ticket.

    Besides, the road was all mine besides one 18 wheeler waaaay up in the distance, oh and the CHP who was hiding behind a guard rail for a drainage ditch. I had the cruise control on just above 75, but somehow my foot found the pedal anyway. 88 in a 70 on I-5, in the past they wouldn't even blink an eye for anything below 90.

    Is your license plate "KINGPIN"?

    HOLY COW! What did you do? 80mph through a school zone?

    Bummer. My town just installed traffic cameras for speeders.

    Where you really get nailed is your insurance. Do the traffic school. A coworker of mine got nailed and it was her second or third. Her rate jumped about $50/month and they said the ticket would be on her record for several years. So that ticket cost her well over a grand when all was said and done.
