What's most epic is how the police officer immediately reduced the charges so nonchalantly.

Reducing the limit on the ticket is arbutrary. If you give them attitude, be sure that you'll get the full hit. I think by lowering the fine, they hope you won't challenge it in court and just pay it off. One less charge to testify from their book.

my complaint look at that road & tell me i should lose points for that?
it wasn't unsafe.. most unsafe part is her running in front of cars all day.
sad a person could get injured, career ended over something so trivial.
-limit is too low there.

but i'm glad i didn't get the full ticket- obviously.

Anyone else confused?

Epic is like a pun or sarcastic opposite of what this is: pretty bland & normal.
imagine if i had been doing 9kph more... could u watch that vid & Honestly call it 'racing'

and yeah i guess it is standard for them to rake it in like that. limit is to low.
less confused?

see what happens how? to see if i'd get 'let off' or more a 'screw me I deserve to get my shit impounded & lose my licence for driving like that ("unsafely")'

which one?

It’s exactly what I predicted. Standard police procedure.

IMHO, I don’t know if that tape will do any good in court.
I wonder what the police unions stance on running into traffic with no reflective vest are in regards to minimization of work related injuries??
they also set up shop in front a bus stop

yeah i doubt it would help in court either?-
but i think amongst us bmw drivers it shows & we can hopefully all appreciate that this was not an 'unsafe' speed for that road

OK..Which is more dangerous: my posted vid or running a red light at 60kph??
because if a redlight camera catches you its a 'money only' fine no points

well your title was misleading, said epic speeding ticket so I assumed that you were doing 50 over and she let you off. never said it was unsafe on that road as I dont even know where that was, just said it couldve been avoided

Actually no, Im not less confused, but in fact, more confused by your convoluted way of describing a simple and daily occurence. I mean, you were speeding, you got pulled over.

You were not doing 50 over, no need to assimilate it. If you had been doing 49 over and nothing was said, than maybe you could be curious, but all in all, I think this whole thread was made for you to get attention.

We have all been in the same position you have. Some were better off and some were worse. I personally think you got treated like any other person who kept their mouth shut would have.

As for the immediate deduction on the ticket, she may realize that you weren't being 'unsafe' in any way, and thus, it wasnt a question of merit, but rather, you broke the law, she gave you a break, and now your going to pay the consequences that she felt necessary.

Can you please explain to me now, what I am still not getting?

wtf you deserve that ticket. Obviously in the video you were going way faster than the "flow of traffic". The officer gave you plenty of warning to stop so i don't see how unsafe she was? unsafe is jumping out on the fast lane of the 401 to stop a speeder. trust me i've seen it done.

IMO this is a ticket that could've been avoided or a desprate plea for attention from the internet world.

edit: i think the limit is 60 there b/c it looks like a busy business sector or something. Is that an apartment building down the road there as well?

lol the only thing 'conveluted' is your lengthly reply supposedly avec plus 'confusion'

'simple daily occurence' i remeber when there weren't 30+ speed enfrocement traps in this city of less then 1million people
and it was not a simple daily occurence....These simple and daily occurence equate to millions in revene..
at the cost of a percentage of the motorists privileges..all from something as mundane as commuting with the flow of traffic.

now i know i was speeding - i never said i wasn't - but had that 3 lane road had a realistic limit on it 70-or 80kph.
i would've only been 20-30 over & would have probably gotten a 10-15kph over ticket.
10kph over having no points loss & the city still gets its $50 bux

the limit is artificially low there..there are other roads that only have 2lanes,
sidwalks, near schools & a hospital that have a 70kph limit!?
so why not the 3lane 'artery' road with no sidewalks & only gov building around??
maybe cause keeping it at 60 (a ridiculously low speed for that road) is worth millions a year in revenue!

now as for what im 'Entitled' to be curious about- who made you g0d?
I'm entitled to be curious about whatever I want to be.

And i think its a wee bit shady on the officers part that there was no mention of how close i was to being impounded!
I mean I could've coughed and been over 110. my (assumed) ignorance is her ticket writing car impounding Bliss i guess.

she gave you a break and reduced the fine so stop bitching. next time you decide to speed keep your eyes open for speed traps.

Why were you cruising around with a camera rolling? I also believe you were supposed to inform the officer that the conversation/traffic stop was being recorded.

Yup business sector that's the Canada post building, and there's a few more Government buildings out there..

That's a bad road for speeders, when he stops you can see the red light camera sign(bad road in general).. Friday nights tons of cars on there racing F & F Style.

25km/h over? I'm surprised she didn't give you a ticket for the 3 point range.. If it was the other side of the river it would have been one point lol I'm surprised she didn't say boo for your exhaust, maybe cause you have Quebec plates. Here's my "lucky" pulled over story, doing 121km/h in a 70km(5 points $5xx fine).. he knocked it down to 101km/h 2 points 105$ fine.

I think what the OP is saying, is the safety of her like he mentioned. Imagine coming down the road and the sun is right in your eyes (and you can't see down the road)and you have a police officer standing in the road trying to tell someone doing 100 to slow down. Can you say new windshield, and coffin? Usually they do have orange vests, or some stay on the grass and point to tell you to pull over.
