[i]Got A Lead Foot...[/i]

down on my accelerator

I really need to slow down my driving!

Just a few short weeks ago....ummm, specifically September 09....while driving to some freakin podunk Texas town, I was caught (gasp) speeding. Damnit! It's been, like, forever since that's happened, so I opted for the
"Defensive Driving Course" option. Still gotta pay a nice hefty price, however. Since I procrastinated, I drove back out to podunkville yesterday to hand over the cash they required. I received the necessary paperwork and the explicit warning that I am not to get any tickets, or such, over the next 90 days.

It's a beautiful day (finally a "cold front")and, well, since I'm already out in the sticks, I decided to cut across some backwoods road and visit a friend, who lives in Hicktown. Had a pleasant little visit....

I began my journey home, which is approx 40 minutes, and made a couple of phone calls. During one of those phone calls, I peeked in my rearview mirror and what do I see???? YEP! Those ALL TOO FAMILIAR flashing lights...Damnit, again! I'm thinkin' 90 days hasn't passed, yet, since I just got that speech 3 hours prior.

So, I asked how fast I was going...since I've pretty much accepted the fact that I can't fight these things. (And this hardass redneck was NOT interested in my cleavage, AT ALL!) 89 in a 65. Oh.....shit.....that oughta take a good chunk to remedy!

I'm slowing down, now.....so, I'll be late! (ha! as if I would be on time otherwise.)

Wondering how I can work that defensive driving course in....seems I need it!

Hope your luck is better than mine!

Yagotta get it soft and wet so we can kick/stick it

Got mine doing 93 in a 65 (anything over 85 is a reckless driving charge) and a construction zone to boot... in the great and sprawling metropolis of Spotsylvania, VA. And I haven't been more than 5 over on the roads since lol

Good luck in court!

Showing cleavage to the cop huh? How far would you have gone to get out of that ticket? I may have to pull you over!

I had the same problem myself, until I invested in a GOOD radar detecter. An investment of $350 has already paid for itself.
(It's better than being late).
Texas is way to laid back for me.
