Speeding ticket and SpeedoDRD
I'm not blaming it on the SpeedoDRD but I installed it last week and did a spontanious jaunt to the mountains yesterday. I got pulled by SHP on I85 3-lane going out of Charlotte. Unfortunately I got his attention by passing a big-rig on the right because maw-maw was hanging with it in the left "passing" lane creating a huge back-up. I decided to bust a move around the right and get in front of traffic.
After making the move I setteled in at 75-80 mph on my speedometer completely forgetting that I installed the SpeedoDRD. Usually i'm running 8-9 mph slower.
Suddenly I noticed a silver Charger on my ass. WTH!
He was just a kid but told me that he clocked me at 76 so imediately I thought ...oh yea...dang! I handed him my license and he returned it with a ticket. He said that he reduced it to 75 to keep me out of court...I was like ...WHAT? Turns out that I was in a 60 mph zone. Nobody does less than 70 thru that area.
Oh well! 1st ticket in a long time. Kinda squashed the fun out of my trip.
On the way home today it thought for a brief moment that there may be some creative logic behind the typical speedo error. It made me feel at least like I was hooligan when in fact I was barely going over the limit. LOL!
