Joe, how many points can you get before they take your license?

68 mph in a 45--3 pts

55 mph in a 45-- 2 pts

60 mph in a 55-- 2 pts

Violation of basic speed law--right into the back of a UPS truck 2 pts
95 mph non-stop through back roads, villages, stop signs/lights/traffic lights, ice, after dark, with a screaming, very pregnant wife--1 kid

105 mph in a 55 (while passing four cars I only wanted to pass one, but once committed, the car I was passing sped up so I had to pass them all. They were originally going 50 mph--didn't realize the Bonneville could accelerate so quickly)-- 0 pts--no police around. But I didn't expect or plan to go that fast. Felt like 65 mph. I have to watch what I do.

I've only ever received one speeding ticket, although I've been pulled over a number of times...I think I was doing about 40 through one of those little towns where the limit is suddenly 30 because it'* a residential area...fined $75....no points...I get parking tickets fairly often tho :(

Totally agree. It'* nice when you are around a university, where students drive around in their speedy rice rockets and daddy mustangs, and cops think I'm an old man.

*knock on wood*

I went well over 100 on M45, and I'm not gonna do that again.
