Why wouldn't you. It is your right to fight it even if you where in the wrong. Why pay more money than we already have to. (ie; Registration, Gas Tax, income tax, Toll'* etc)
If I wasn't willing to accept the consequences of my actions, I simply wouldn't do it. I guess I've just been raised that way.

That has nothing to do with it. Tickets in the beginning tickets were there as a deterent. Now it is more of income for the government. Hey if they have proof of me speeding I'll pay the fine but if they can't, who'* to say that I did it. Speeding is a misdemeanor in most states, and last time I checked you were innocent until proven guilty not visa versa. Here in California if you get stopped for speeding most fines range from 400.00 to 1500.00 and that is just speeding not for reckless driving. Besides the fine you get what the courts tack on as a penalty assesment. In april I got a ticket for doing 83 mph on my way to Dulles airport in Fairfax, VA. My ticket was only 190.00, I paid it no problem. But then I did a little checking on the issues of speeding in Fairfax, VA and found that there has been a number of cases involving illegal Speed Traps and ticketing for 1 or 2 mph over the speed limit. This is grossly unfair to people. I believe that if you cannot be proved guilty then why pay this is our justice system. If you don't care about how our justice system works then there are plenty of other countries that don't give you rights. Just my 2 and then some pennies!

I see. So fight our unbalanced judicial system by being dishonest and unjust ourselves. Makes sense...

No dishonesty involved. They must prove you guilty! Period!

Unless there is a unit up ahead he radios too, you can be home free and just make a few good turns really quickly, and black your lights out while your doing it. My friend ran from the cops twice -- Not something i would do, but hes one crazy ****. When you have a much faster car than the police and are on a major interstate with NOBODY on it at 2am -- its easy to run from em. He said he was flooring it to 145 and he never got pulled over. Went home, switched cars and went out again. All was good
what was he driving

Here in VA when I got pulled over I was doing 74 in a 55 and I didn't even see the cop, all I saw were lights and that was it. But for the exceptions I drive into the city daily now and on Rt.66 I will be going 85-90 and trying to keep up with traffic, and cops won't pull you over.
