wow deja vu, I was caught doing 100+ in a work zone on I-75 in GA and like you just drifted off into neverland while driving. The cop flipped the [email protected]#$ out and said I will never see my car or license again. Well I paid a hefty fine and never lost my car or license. I could have put my daughter through college with the fine I paid but oh well I learned a lesson and put my cruise control at 70 MPH all the way through GA now. Best of luck with ya d3xxfr.

My ticket is $275, but on the bottom of the ticket it says if you plead guilty or are found guilty of a 3363 you licnese WILL BE SUSPENDED. I'm going to plead not and go to court and beg. My only problem is doing this without my parents knowing haha thats gonna be tricky.

I got a ticket once for 5 over like 4 years ago, and kept it a secret from my parents, everything was great untill our insurace co. sent a registered letter to the houe to cancell our insurance on our boats because i was on those policies!! it sucked

Get a lawyer to get it dropped down to a lesser charge. It will probably cost you a little more but it might be worth it.
great advice actually. The DA's are usually pretty lenient if you offer to give them more money instead of suspending your liscense. It's NOT a guarantee though so do it at your own risk.

And shit....when I was 18 I got my liscense suspended for underage drinking and had my liscense suspended for 90 days and NOBODY knew about it. Just don't tell anybody and no one will know :D

Get a good lawyer or plead guilty because its RARE that going before the judge does anything but get you a stiffer penalty for wasting the court's time when you're clearly in the wrong.

Just got a ticket two weeks ago btw. I'll be pleading guilty. Got flagged for 54 in a 30, so not a huge deal but 200 bucks and traffic school isnt too great either. I was actually going a little faster (2nd gear, heh). It was my favorite back road to play on, and sure enough some stupid sheriff's deputy decided to eat some donuts there.

I live in a hickish FL town, so going before the Judge is the last thing I want to do. They routinely invent their own laws/punishments and ignore florida statutes and other fun things like that, if you piss em off.

Tell your parents.
I agree. It's much easier to tell them NOW than to keep it from them and they find out later. Then you'll get busted by them not only for the ticket, but also for keeping it from them.

As a father of two teenaged boys who drive fast cars, I'd much rather hear it from them than someone else.

Case in point. One of my best buddies has an 18 year old son. He had a ricered up Plymouth Laser and bragged to my boys several times about street racing and how fast his car was (in all of it's 150 hp glory...). My sons told me what the kid said - they don't street race, we race on SCCA autocross tracks.

I talked to his dad - he limited his use of his car, citing the unusual tire wear present and rubber chunks in the fron wheel wells, rather than diming out my sons.

The kid blew up his clutch twice and his engine once. Dad paid to have it fixed - not something I would have ever considered.

Anyhoo, the kid's getting ready to go to college (local), so mom helps him find a 2001 Audi TT Quattro with engine mods and 19" wheels....for $15k - bear in mind, he wouldn't even change his own oil or take care of his previous car.

A week or so after getting the Audi, he bragged to my sons that he got a ticket for having a speed contest on Rt 309 (4 lane hwy) with two of his buddies - he explained that he'd just pay the $350 ticket and his dad would never know...

You know the rest of the story - my buddy isn't an ebay guy, but I am - I sold his car on ebay for his dad.

If he would have told his dad, he would have gotten his ass chewed, but he'd still have his car.
