Eager Upshifter in SW Houston
Hopefully, your state has the legalized bribery program they call "deferment". Jack up the fine and they forget all about it. My last ticket in my Mark VII was about $250 under the deferment program. I passed an unmarked car. As soon as I got back in my lane, here come the lights. Oops.
Yikes. At that price point you must have been in the triple digits. That was about 8 tank fill ups at today's $/gal. LOL
