Hey everyone!! Check this out--- I got a speeding ticket bout two months ago on my way to school. I live in a rural town about 25 miles from Saint Louis. I was doing 87 mph in a 55 mph zone. Nobody was in my lane in either direction for as far as i could see. There was a minivan coming at me and a state cop was tailgating him so I couldn't see him. I saw the cop at the last minute and dropped gears quick to slow down. He braked and kicked on his cherries and came around. I slowed and stopped and he gave me a ticket which he told me was going to be $105. He also said I had to go before a judge. I went to court today and he wouldn't put me on supervision. In addition, I was charged $125 for the ticket and $91 for court fees for the three minutes I stood before the judge. I paid the $216 and went to school. I realized that one of my friends had the exact same situation where she was pulled over in the exact same spot doing 91 in a 55 zone. She went to court and she was fined a total of $95 including ticket and court fees!!! I have the pics of my ticket and receipt as well as her ticket and receipt. Needless to say this is bullshit and my father is taking all this info to his lawyer tommorow. What do you all think???
