Ohio Murano, have you thought about moving to the Bay Area? We would love to have resonable police officers like you. Not that ours are bad, but more of good is betterOhio Murano said:I too agree we shouldn't encourage speeding. It is like anything else, in moderation it isn't to bad but in excess it can be deadly. NismoMurano I know it's exciting to be going that fast and I'm not trying to be down on you but I would hope you were in a place like the desert or limited access highway but if it was in a 50 mph zone I have to wonder. Just be careful!!!
There are stretches of 580 and 680 that will let you do that for a short period of time. It is pretty much a must as many decide to take advantage of the open road while they have a chance!jaak said:You got up to 85 in the Bay Area? Traffic must have lightened up lately!!!
jaak said:I had something similar, although not quite as fast and without the hand gestures on 152 from 5 to Gilroy, just south of the Bay Area... All I could think of, was to get the a$$ 0 off my tail, so I gassed it to finish getting around the transport truck. In hindsight it would have been interesting to ask if I could borrow his ticket book to issue a ticket for following too closely.
He told me I'd get a ticket in the mail, which I didn't see. 5 years later, I get the letter, saying they're willing to drop it to $300, as I never appeared and it just kept climbing. I looked at the name and address on the ticket and was astounded it made it to me, as it was messed up. It also explained why I never saw the original...
I'm not too worried about them tracking down:

And even if they found him, he's probably never been to California.
Zebelkhan, I guess my problem was I was usually south or up the other side of the Bay from you... Either business or visiting friends in San Jose or Cupertino. Bud's of mine live down the end of Steven's Creek. Ex HPers like so many of us.
Well that's what blew my mind.... I threw it out, so what I put here isn't what it looked like, but it was similar. It was that badly scrambled, yet one of the many, many, I'm sure, that were sent, actually made it.zebelkhan said:How did they find you after 5 years? Was the letter correctly addressed to you this time?

I absolutly dont recommend anyone tryign to top any of those.
Did they arrest you? I was || this close to being busted.
Oh man... I am soooo jealous of that...mgthe3 said:My Mo has passed many a cop while I was 80 in a 55 but they never have given me a second thought.
Back in the day.... (77) I was in a 74 Ford Elite (400M) going I guess 90 or so on the way to the beach in N. Carolina. They had this 12' hedge in the median so I figured it was safe to fly. Along came this gap in the hedge and I saw a station wagon, went "NP" then out from behind it popped this obvious radar gun on the side of a Grand Fury interceptor. I knew I had been passing that hedge for at least a mile....so I floored it. After about 10 minutes of going around 135 I saw his blue lights come over the peak of a hill about a mile behind me, I was impressed! He must have been exceeding 150 to catch me. So I pulled over and waited. Along he comes and pulled in behind me. He gave me a ticket for 72 in a 70---the reason? He said he hadn't had that much fun in a long while.
