Re: Cops, Valentine One (no Quattro content)

Hmmmmm...Here's one that I'm in the process of trying to beat.  I got
nailed with lidar in CT doing 76 in a 55.  There was one other car on the
road (in front of me), and he pulled both of us over.  He gave us a huge
break -- failure to obey a posted sign, $60 no points.  Unfortunately
insurance doesn't care about the points, its the violation that they'll
nail me for and I'll be looking at a 10-20% increase for 3-5 years.

Here's the catch...on the ticket, he wrote down the state where the vehicle
was registered as PA, not VA.  I've never driven a car with PA
registration.  Think I've got a chance, or should I just suck it up and pay
the fine?
