Ok, a couple weeks ago I was being a jacka$$ and was going faster than I should have. I don't like to speed because that's what a race track is for. I had just put a new set of cams in my car and wanted to test them out. I was on an open road near my house with no cars around. Up ahead was a LAPD bike cop with a radar gun. I didn't know how fast I was going but considering I was in 4th gear, I knew I was moving pretty good. I pulled over before he turned his lights on cuz I knew what was going to happen and I figure by making it easy on him and realizing my mistake, he might be cool with me. He came up to me and told me I was doing 77 in a 40. I know I was going above the posted speed limit, but not that fast...or was I? I didn't argue with him, I was polite and all. When it came time to show my proof of insurance I didn't have it because I hadn't received the slip from the insuance company yet. He wrote me up, we went our seperate ways. Today I get the letter in the mail an my ticket is $981.00! What up with that! Could it be so high because I didn't have insurance or is that how much stuff like this is? I am not just gonna write them a check, I'm gonna go to court on that date to try and get them to lower it. Hopefully by showing them I was insured and waiting for the papers, they'd lower the ticket cost?
