Jody's chip ruined my day!
I read the notice and recommendations again after I got home. I think Jody is negligent and responsible for my ticket today.
I just passed a CHP going east on the 126 today coming home from Santa Barbara. (a 4 lane highway in SoCal)
I laughed, and then saw a Duramax ahead that was in need of some abuse. I just passed the CHP cruiser and slowed to 55, so I stabbed it to catch the jackhole w/ the Tampax. As I came around a big sweeping left, I saw the second CHP w/ a radar gun on a bike.
I was in my DD tune so I wasn't smoking too bad, and I got out of it as quick as I could. I thought that maybe I got lucky, but I saw him put the gun away as I passed, so I pulled over.
He asked if I knew what the speed limit was, and I said "65?"
He said no, it's 60 and you were doing 90! I thought "good thing I let out of it".
He asked for my info, and I tried to brown nose, but I still got screwed.
He came back w/ the ticket, and also got me for no mud flaps. (That's the 5th time for mud flaps.)
I guess it wasn't all bad, because right after I took off, another Tampax passed me. At the next light I rolled down my window to try to hear the lame diesel. (At least a C*****s sounds like a real truck.) I whooped on him and then followed him onto the freeway where I passed him again. He got off behind me, followed me to the light, and then pulled into the left hand turn lane to save face.
I think it's only fair that Jody split the ticket. Or maybe he pays the ticket, and I do the traffic school.
Thanks again Jody, I owe this one to you.
