Anyone out there share my dilemma ? I just got My 3rd speeding ticket in 12 mon. period. All of them were in My car though. The third speeding ticket they popped Me for $280 and 6 points on My license. I have a total of 10 points 2 more points and My license is gone :( I think I have to wait 2 years till they drop off, so I have to take it easy for the next 2 years. This is a warning !! If You have 2 tickets in less than a year DO NOT get a third !! Thats Ohio though, not sure about other states.

Signed,

Stuck in the slow lane :(

Ouch! Sad!

I've myself been stopped 4-5 times now and haven't got a single ticket.. not even a punish. I'm probably just so nice to talk to :)

I'm wondering.. is your car license and bike license bound together? so that if you get stopped on the car for speeding.. then you'll loose the bike license as well?

We just have photo radar here, The cops RARELY set up real radar traps. I haven't had a real ticket with points on my licence for over 4 years. (knock on wood) I just consider it speed tax if I get a ticket now.

Don't let anyone tell you photo radar is a bad thing.. I have gotten away with so much crap since those things came here it's rediculous.

Not that I promote or condone that sort of thing, tho. Oh no. That would be wrong. And stuff.:D

I live in Mechanicsburg which is right next to Harrisburg in central PA. According to Microsoft Streets and Trips it would take almost 5hrs to get to you from here via the turnpike. :(

Take the ticket to court - even if you are guilty. I'm not sure how your courts work in the US but in Canada if you fight a ticket and show up for your court date 2 things usually happen. One - officer does not show up and you get off scot free! or - you plea bargain with the cop and crown attorny before your trial and they usually let you plead to a lesser charge to save court time.

I just got a ticket on my bike 2 months ago (3 points 120.00 fine) - I was speeding :) Plead not guilty went to court and talked to the cop before my trial and he agreed to lessen the charge to a 40.00 fine and no points!!!
