it's the court costs that kill you.

i was going a little over the speed limit on capital and a van decided to whip around me right at a speed trap. so the cop pulls out and noticed that my tags still say may. so he stopped me instead of the van since i WAS speeding too.

i got a lecture on my inspection being expired (a short one) and a reminder that my tags expire thursday plus a little tiny speeding ticket that i don't even have to go in for... i can mail it in. of course the court costs bring it $140 --- that i don't have. i may have to go in and ask for an extension on payment at least.

but somewhere in there someone is probably going to notice that i have a prayer for judgement on my record from march of 2005.
which means i'm going to be driving to and from work only on special dispensation on a suspended license by the end of summer most likely.

fortunately the cop was nice and didn't ticket me for the expired inspection - the one i'm getting done friday.

I think there is like a 15 day grace period on that stuff, at least I know there is for the registration, which may be why he didn't ticket you.

If you go to the Court, you should ask for your speed to be reduced to 10 miles or less over the limit. That will not effect your insurance! Also, you will likely only be charged the costs of court which is $110 rather that $140.
