So much for the laws not applying to you, huh?

The police chief in the town I once lived in, in the swing swerlin' state of N.J; tells a story about how he was given a ticket in a neighboring town, by an overenthusiastic cop, one day before he went into the police academy. A number of years later, before he was chief and when he was on patrol, a car drove down the shoulder in order to avoid traffic.

You guy can finish the story from here and avoid me doing all that typing.

I was guilty as sin...probably would've been going faster on this particular road had the trooper not caught me mid-acceleration. I saw him, saw his brake lights, and I immediately pulled over. Waited for him to get to me, gave him my license/permit/insurance card.

I told him I was giving him my pistol permit because I had a pistol in the car, as I was an off-duty cop. He said, "Then you know how fast you were going?" I told him yes, 68 or 69.

He returned a few minutes later with the cite, explained the payment instructions to me, and ended the stop with, "Be careful."

in many types of jobs that involve driving, a speeding ticket could be the end of your job. how will the station react to this? you aren't in any danger of git'n in trouble at work for it are ya?

Actually, I'll either pay it or go to traffic school––whichever my supervisor likes best.

This was in Alabama––I work in Mississippi. I only know one state trooper over in Mobile, and I damn sure ain't calling him over something this petty.

Doubtful, although I am still "probationary" at my agency. If they want to make bones about it, I have other options.

That's weird...because when I sub-consult high-end, ultra-technical services I have to pay for it even though that's what I do.

And you didn't even get locked out of a forum for believing otherwise!!


ETA: That "locked out of BOTS forum" list is the TBL on ARFCOM BTW.

How do you get the option of going to school? I thought the only choice we had in MS was to pay it.

No. There are traffic schools available in MS.

Keep in mind, though, that I received the ticket in Alabama. I'm subject to the laws and courts of Alabama. They offer traffic school, too.

They'll probably pay you for your time in court....

Seriously, though: When I worked patrol, I hardly ever wrote speeding tickets (literally 7 or 8 in three years) because most of them were on roads where no accidents occurred. I figured the lack of accidents meant that speeding on those roads did not contribute to accidents.

ARJJ,

Do you have the little Black sticker with the blue line on your ride?
Link Posted: 9/11/2010 4:33:40 PM EDT
I let other cops go and I never get tickets from other cops. Job does have it's perks.
Link Posted: 9/11/2010 4:34:07 PM EDT


Were you in uniform in your patrol car?

Then it doesn't count.

I wish I could pull over cops and have them write themselves tickets for speeding. Plenty of times I see them flying down the street without lights or siren on. Yeah - law applies to you to Dano! Now write yourself a ticket and sign it.

I think it looks pretty nifty, but the 2"x3" size is a bit small.

It is small...it's missing the part that matters. The people.

No I was not in uniform and I was not in any patrol car. At my current assignment I don't have either.

As for cops going the speed limit, have you ever seen what happens when a marked unit goes the speed limit? You get a clusterfuck of angry drivers all packed into columns behind/beside the cop––which definitely increases the potential for a collision. So most of us choose to drive a bit over the speed limit to avoid the traffic snarl. Consider it a favor to you.

Dude, you know your not suppose to discuss the sticker outside LEO circles, and you know what the punishment is. And you'll probably get this thread locked because of it.

Kinda what I was thinking.

I even had a known doper riding around in an SUV with a TBL sticker on it. I stopped him for no tag and told him to take it off.

I always follow the 10 mile rule, 55 keep it below 65, anything over 10 MPH is a good ticket. But you know that already

BTW: Did you badge him?

In PA it's the 6 MPH rule.

In a 55, 61 is OK but 62 will cost money.

And we have fines doubled areas that make no sense. They are all on areas of 4 lane roads with little congestion. Long stretches of fines doubled then you get to an area with a lot of traffic turning and entering the road and it's just the regular fines. I don't get it...but had a few fines in the doubled areas. Great for generating revenue I guess.

Thank you, I fuckin hate it when cops go exactly the speed limit. It's worse than two idiots doing a rolling roadblock.

I remember a story of a city cop here doing over a 100 on the interstate. Trooper stoped him. First thing the cop did was flip out his badge and tell him he wasnt writing him a fucking ticket. Lets just say it did not end well for said cop
Link Posted: 9/12/2010 6:39:30 AM EDT
I dont know about in MS but in FL you can do some short bullshit "traffic school" online before you pay the ticket and get a reduced fee or something like that. I cant really remember now. Its been several years.
