    Angry How fair is this?

    Ok Here it is. I was driving this morning on my way to school and I am driving with my music up and I see a car coming in the oppisite lane and my instint tells me it is a police but i still keep speeding I even up with him and his lights start flashing. I say some bad words and pull over. ''67 in a 55'' he says. I leave half a hour later with a ticket. Around 10 minuets later my friend gets pulled over going 75 in a 55 in the same spot I did by the same cop. He gets off 2 minuets later with a verbal warning.Is the police force is wrong in doing this? Is it because I was in a WRX and he was in a 1986 Subaru GL? Or is it because he was a ingronrant jerk? I get to go to court this wendsday. Please tell me was he wrong in doing this or am I being over reactive?

    In the words of some old man.... "Slow Down Sonny!". Nah, sorry about the bad luck. Tickets suck! Best to pay it and move on. Life is too short as it is. Why waste it fighting tickets?

    Sorry about the ticket, but I'm betting it was the car. I grew up with cops and they'll tell you there are a lot of things that bias their decisions.

    Personally if I had to give a ticket between a kid in an 04WRX with loud exhaust and BOV vs a kid in a 86 Legacy, I'd ticket the WRX.

    Also, never argue with a cop, you will never win. Save it for court.

    A cop can do choose to give warnings or tickets, its totally up to him. It is completely legal to do what he did.

    I'd check out ticketassassin... my friend is currently trying to help out one of his co-workers using it. A lot of info on the site if you want to spend the time to fight the ticket. I guess it wouldn't hurt to try.

    You got a ticket. Get over it, it happens. Not being an ass, but it happens... Are you saying that you want your friend to get a ticket as well? You got one, so should he? Nice of you to wish the best for your friends....

    Do you have any prior tickets or points? Did you kiss the cops a$$ or give him attitude for pulling you? Maybe your friend has a cleaner license and was just a little bit nicer. Both of those will influence a cops decision.

    Two words "Radar Detector".

    Saved my ass more times than I can count. I live in NJ and I think when a cop graduates from "Super Trooper School" they install a radar gun in his head (just like the Borg). Cops here are always riding around with there radar guns on. Which is a good thing because that way I always know where they're at.

    Isnt this the "racing" forum? Not my job but i think the only things that should be posted here are races. Whining about tickets is definately an Off Topic.

    Also the "What do you guys think" or the "will i beat this car" threads are annoying as well. Just race and find out.
