So when should i expect to see the police out side my place, or me being paged to the front desk at work? I got a speeding ticket back in may i think it was for doing 88 in a 70 around mid night on a tuesday night. Instead of justing paying the fine of like $80 i was worried that my insurance would go way up (21 years old). So i got it amended down to a 74. But i had to do 20 hours of community service, and pay $260. Well now due to financial, and work problems i can't make it to court. I have already had my due date set back two times now. I wrote another letter to the judge explaining why i cannot make it about two weeks ago. Tried calling yesterday(~4:30pm) to see what the deal was but no answer. I called again about 20 minutes ago and they said they had the letter and it would go in with my file at 9 this morning (~7 min ago). From the people i talked too, including a former city cop, 20 hours is a lot for a speeding ticket. My fiancee' and a co worker all got speeding tickets in and around the same place i got mine. Fiancee' was doing 99 in a 70, and co-worker was doing 85 in a 65. Both times the cop wrote them down for doing 15 over. I was written down for doing 18 over. 1-15 over is the first bracket, 16-25 is the next bracket. I never have good luck with cops. I'm polite, yes sir, no sir. I don't bull sh*t with them. And yet i still get tickets. Although this is my first speeding ticket.
