I kind of lean on Roger Browns "Charlie Browns" homepage. ------ BUT I do have my
own experience ---from Ford T to Rabbit 1984. Diesel Turbo.
Odometers have to be connected directly to a piece of rubber hitting the pavement. ? JAH ?
Aber natuerlish. ----so that limits the places you can get it from ? Jah ?
Speedometers are usually connected to the same cable. ? ---Jah ?-. Ach du lieber ---nein problemo.
On the Highways in BC are kilometer markers on the side of the road. ----Jah ?
You have a stop watch ---Jah ? ---so what is das problemo ? -----To test the ratio
of drive gear and wheel size and tire size ----drive from one to the next.---Jah ?
I found that German " Accuracy " was NO myth. ------blew my socks off. I was used to
sloppy GM and Ford precision --- Jah verstehen ? -----Tell me if your VW clock does not
keep time ----JAH ? ----bet your ass it does.
So I get this GESTAPO speeding ticket --Jah ? ----und isch nicht speeding --Jah ? --- that is
WHY I know so much about VW speedometers. ----I beat the ticket 115 dollars Canadian.
In BC the law is that a Stealership is NOT allowed to touch a speedo. --so when I said test my speedo
they said NEIN. -------It either works or NOT and the tolerance is + - 5 % ? on speed.
NO way was I going to not contest that ticket. ------IT was a revenue ticket --not a speeding ticket.
The GESTAPO guy was a complete idiot --- RCMP --they call themselves here. -----
Royal Canadian Military Police. ------ In court I got a Japanese Judge Yamamoto or something
like it. ------GOOD JUDGE of character.
And Hagar very seldom lies----you can take that to the bank. I am going to lie in court for a lousy
115 dollars Can. ? ----NEVER.
I demanded NO not asked --- DEMANDED an apology from ICBC for canceling my plates
did I get it NOT so far. -----yes that is what they do (DID) here ---a lousy parking ticket
or anything and you can NOT drive your car. Even if it is disputed ? ---not a stupid
way of doing things ? ----If you are speeding ? ---head for ER and say you got Epoxy in your eye.
Epoxy hardener is destructive in your eyes.-----make sure you own Epoxy. ---like me.
Procedure is known as CYA ---- survival ? or scumbag , sleesebag or Slimebag ?.
I am retired ---Jah ?--and do I need to speed ? NEIN.
