Unhappy got my first ticket today

well i got my first ticket in the camaro today! I knew it was going to happen sooner or later but i at least wanted to be aware that i was breaking the law when i got one..it has been a very bad day for me so i wasnt even paying attention to my speed, heck i wasnt even wearing my seatbelt..he obviously didnt catch that one because sad to say when i seen his lights appear behind me thats when i realized i wasnt wearing it and thought thats what i was getting pulled over for...i sure hope this day starts taking a turn in a better direction!

I was driving on the freeway about a week after I got The Camaro.

I came up behind a car that was doing 50 in the left lane in a 55 zone. I flashed my lights to request a move-over but he didn't (move over). The opportunity presented itself so I signaled, stepped down on the gas pedal (just a little bit) and passed him, signaled and changed back to the left lane. I was doing about 68 when I passed him.

I got into the left lane again and looked in the rear view ... red/blue. [email protected] Unmarked cop car. Pulled over, lowered the passenger window and he came up to the car.

He told me he was on the way home and didn't want to go back to the office to do the paperwork and he liked the car so he was gonna gimme a freebie .... this time. I go that way every evening after work and I have seen him a few times since.

He noticed my Cincinnati Microwave Passport Wide Band Laser/Radar unit (was using the curly cord at the time cause I hadn't installed the hidden power cord yet) as he was leaving and I noticed a little irritation in his eyes and he left.

I'm more careful in that area (West Linn, Oregon) now.

@brandi: A seatbelt will wrinkle your dress but a windshield will wrinkle your face. FWIW.

Sorry to hear you're having a sucky day...but you know that ticket was probably inevitable. I am looking forward to my first in Envy, I know it won't take me long. I have a long rap sheet and an attorney on retainer to handle such mishaps. It's all part of the fun...but don't tell your son I said that.
