    You got 2 chances that your wife is going to pay it. "Slim and No"

    This time of the year the State troopers pretty much leave us tradesmen alone. They have all these New Jersey skiers going 100 mph to get to the slopes. They get extra credit I think if they ticket a BMW.

    Wow!! Are you anywhere near the academy in Springfield? If so, you might as well figure out how you're going to get that extra money, also figure in court costs, unless you got a break and can pay it before hand. Those troopers down there don't let anyone catch a break, that includes local authorities.

    Crime doesn't pay! Neither does breaking the law for your "Boss"!

    Reminds me of a party we were at and my brother decided to walk home to avoid a dui. He got a public intoxication ticket instead for staggering down the sidewalk.

    if it were me, and it has been, i'd go to court. i wouldnt go thinking i was going to beat the ticket, but i would go to get the ticket to be fine and penalties only forget about the points. they do that round here. the points are the killer as far as the insurance rates and all that go.
