I think Kid Cudi said it best - "People told me slow me roll. I'm screaming out fuck that." Then I got a ticket for doing over 100mph coming back from San Diego. And honestly the first month I was more bummed at how lame my ticket was. If I was going to be forced to stop speeding at least I could have gotten pinched doing like 105 or 130! I was only doing 101. Lame. Mr S. was actually super mad about my attitude.
But then I found out that the law doesn't take lightly to people going over 100mph. It's as bad as drunk driving. Two points on your record. Two points! So I had to hire one of those Better Call Saul ticket lawyers. Who basically told me I was effed. Seriously! He said he was just going to try and not get my license suspended. Other than that? Effed.
Even then I didn't believe the guy so I started talking to everyone to see if he was right. I'd even go to car shows with Ferrari's and all type of performance car and ask the owners if they'd gotten "the big ticket". I was asking everyone. Everyone! They would usually tell me no, and their chuckle told me that guy was right. I was effed. Everyone would laugh at me, which wasn't helpful because I still kinda thought it was funny.
If you think this is bad when you are 20's though, try being older and having more cars. Plus I was going to lose my good driver discount. What?! Other than speeding I'm a good driver! And that ticket stays on your record for a super long time. Like drunk driving. Anyway....
The ticket lawyer was able to plead me down to one point on my record. And now that I know how expensive that potentially is... I'm going to try to keep it under a 100 from now on. I mean, for the next two years I can only normal speed until the ticket drops off my record.
I got super lucky and I'm going to try to be better. Even after I'm not under the threat of going to jail.
