Post Got yet another loud exhaust ticket...but...

The cop gave me a choice between that and the 74 in a 55 ticket, which would be $90+ and 4 points...so I took the exhaust

I was really late driving to my friend's house on Friday, and I was zooming down 202 south a few miles from the NJ/PA state line, and I saw this cop coming the other direction on the other side of the highway, but I didn't slow down...I was late and not really paying attention...As soon as I passed him he turned around and nabbed me. He asked me if I had any tickets in the past, and I told him a speeding ticket a few years ago, and a loud exhaust ticket last month or so. He asked if I paid them all and if I had any warrants (lol), so I said that I paid them all and I have no warrants (which is true lol!!!)...So he walked away, then looked at my exhaust and came back and said, 'You had that exhaust?' and I said yeah...SO he asked me to turn it on He didn't think it was too loud hehe...So he went back to his car and came back, and said I have a choice...I can do the speeding ticket or the loud exhaust. So I chose exhaust...He was pretty cool for letting me do that...But I'm still bummed for the ticket...$44 but no points and insurance won't increase..phew

The moral of this story? Cops can get you even while moving at highway speeds, coming at you on the other side of the highway. I even asked him about it, and he said yeah He thinks his radar is cool lol (he said that)...

The cop would have just scratched his head and you would have just gotten a speeding ticket!

Fido I'd do anything to be in your shoes right now. I have to fight three tickets on the 26th of June, one for speedin (85 in 65), one for carelss driving, and one for failure to signal. 6 points total. But I know somebody who knows somebody so I think I will be ok as long as I show up to court. Pray for me guys and girls!

With a decibel meter.

My old RS registered 95dB from 3000-5500 rpm 18" from behind the tailpipe, which is the legal limit in CA, IIRC.

Unfortunately, NJ doesn't have a legal limit. Which means if a cop says that it's loud, then it's loud

Actually, we should be saying congrats!
A small fine is better than points and an insurance increase any day.

I got two words for you - Radar Detector! The cops in my town constantly use radar, even on the little local streets. Been saved quite a few times.
