Don't go to court OP, just wait for the knock on your door.

What could go wrong?

You broke the law.

The fact that others break it too is not an acceptable excuse.

"I robbed the store, because hundreds or thousands robberies take place every week".

If you are afraid of dirty looks, you should not be driving.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78841779


Where did you read that I was afraid of dirty looks
Where does it say that
I did break the law. I admitted it
The officer did fucking tailgate me into speeding though. He should have put his lights on immediately, not tailgate me and WAIT for me to speed up so I could merge over. I mean what a FG. Didn’t know he was a cop until I sped up.
What was I supposed to do? SLOW DOWN in the left lane

Lesson learned... don't go much more than 10 above. It's unnecessary unless there is a dense flow of traffic, then just keep up with traffic flow. Cops don't care if you are trying to " be nice" or yield to faster traffic.

Theres a book on how to beat traffic citations.
But if you dont show or show up without a lawyer you're losing your licence.
If you think you cant afford a lawyer then wait till you see what the alternative costs you.

Re: I got pulled over for going 81 in a 55. Received a court date instead of a ticket
I’m not fucking going.

I was on the fucking highway and hundreds, if not thousands of car each day got at least 70-90 in the 55. Literally all the cars go over 55mph. In fact, I wasn’t even initially going 81 but I saw a car tailgating me in the left lane so I sped up so I could merge over and let the car pass. (It was the fucking officer)

For fucks sake if you’re in a residential area and the speed limit is 45, you get swerved around and dirty looks from people passing you going 55-65.

Richmond, Virginia... Where everyone runs red lights and no one does shit.

What a gay fucking experience and officer.

Stupid.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76494960


Speed limit's are put in place for a reason. I seriously hope they send the police out to your address. and you get arrested and jailed and a driving licence ban.

Just because other cars do it, doesn't mean you have too. what if you killed someone or hurt them? you lot are worse than drunk drivers.

Wow, that sucks OP. However, I don’t think there’s a clause in the speed law that says “Shall not exceed posted speed, unless everyone else is speeding.”

On another note, fight the charge. They might give you a deal to plead to a lesser charge. If it goes to trial, look up the problems with radar on the internet, then use them against the officer.
 Quoting: Off Switch


if the cop was speeding and raced up on OP without the lights then it's a form of entrapment
also the cop is in violation of the traffic law by speeding without the lights on

if the cop had the lights on then it's still entrapment if the intent was to get someone to speed to "get out of the way" of the cop

cops tailgate without the lights on to run your plate

slowing down and braking when a car is already tailgating you is just as dangerous
Bitch
Not many options in this scenario
except the typical:
speeding up to pass the cars in the middle lane to let the person tailgating you in the left lane pass when you merge over

this isn’t worse than drunk driving you are stupid

I got pulled over doing 80 in a 35 and got an invitation to driver's school...

I got double reckless driving tickets from doing 70 in a 35 when I was younger. Took it to court with a lawyer and they dropped it to a single careless driving. It's worth it to fight it.

If the officer's actions resulted in your going over 80 mph, then I think that you could argue that it was "entrapment." Something very similar to that happened to me but because it happened out of state, I just paid the bill - maybe I was too chicken to challenge it.

Not going to court is a very bad idea, take a state approved online driving course, your lawyer will use this and other factors to get it reduced, he may also recommend you get your own speedometer calibrated, if its off this will also help you. Virginia state police are some of the most decent and professional police I've come across throughout the country. In va anything greater than 15mph over the posted speed limit can be wreckless driving, automatic court date not just a cash ticket.

So why cant you stay within the confines of the law ? Law enforcement already gives most a pass for going 10 mph over the limit. A drivers license is a privilege not a right and the county needs people like you for extra revenue.

You're not going to court eh? They issue Arrest Warrants when you don't show up.

Hire a lawyer
Cop was waiting for anyone to not come to a complete stop at a stop sign
Got a ticket
The lawyer pled that to a non moving violation
It was a $50.00 fine
Pay the lawyer and make it go away
Learn the lesson, pay the lawyer And walk away
