im sorry dude but needle calibration excuses went out a long time ago because even if you get them to say your needle is off by 5 mph you will still be speeding

Well **** if that works I will just take the DHP tuner and change the tire size in the computer and then say something was messed up, have a shop verify it was messed up and wow I get out of a ticket. I doubt it is that easy, so I won't speed for a few more years.

that means that ticket isnt worth the paper its printed on buddy.
Go into court and tell them your dads a state trooper and u shud get out of it. But maybe not cuz ur driving fast all the time obviously and get caught...odd how you picked up speed tho, its only 2mph but cruise control works off RPM, it reads the rpm u are at wen u set it and keeps it there, if your not physically hittign hte pedal while going downhill you shudnt gain hp, ur car will just lower the rpm's to set the speed u were at =/

dude...you set your cruise for 10mph over the speed limit. you knew what you were doing. if you're looking for sympathy, then you're looking in the wrong place.

you ****ed up, you know it, take it like a man.

Man are you ever going to be fighting an uphill battle with that record. Courts don't look favorably on 3 tickets in 2 years. Good luck....

Amen.
And of course 55 means 55. Why do you think they put up those neat little signs? :rolleyes: If you can't learn to obey the laws then buy a V1.

Just plead quilty and you'll get 1 point knocked off. And yeah, you set the cruise control to 10 over, you knew you were speeding. BUT, if you remember the cops face and you don't see him in court you can plead not guilty and since the cop isn't there to disprove your not quilty claim you get off scott free with no fines or court fees. But you have to absolutely be sure that your ticketing officer isn't there, if he is and hes there to prove you sped then you get the full points and fines. So, you knew you were speeding, you even set the cruise control. Just plead guilty and make it easier on yourself. Also, MD cops generally (I emphasize GENERALLY, they can be picky somtimes) accept between 5-9 over on highways and main roads, which is what i usually stay in. Once you go 10 over its 2 points and the cops will nail your ass. Also, if you're going 5 over in a residential,school area, or constuction zone, MD cops will nail you as well. Also, don't make it seem like we're all against you. 3 tickets in 2 years is a lot. You know exactly what you were doing, don't make it sound like the cops are out to get YOU. Even if your speedometer is a little off, you were still knowingly speeding and you'd be lieing if you said that you didn't.

OT but you really got a speeding ticket in MD for 57 in a 55 and 59 in a 55? I really can't believe that unless you were weaving in and out of traffic or something like that. Maybe in court it was reduced to a 59 or 57 so you got 1 pt instead of 2....
But if you're really serious, I doubt shoving a piece of paper anywhere would fool a shop. Just go buy some 18s with meat on em or borrow a friends or something, get your speedo recalibrated by a shop and bring the reciept. My first time in court an older guy got let off having his tires recalibrated. He had like a 800 reciept from the shop because he said 2 tires were different sizes hed just bought the truck, bought new tires and recalibrated.

LoL I love the fact I live in canada.
I cruise on the highway (in the middle lane) at around 129 (fines go up every 15kmph) which is rougly 19mph over the limit.
Cops don't flintch.
