Speeding Ticket

I haven't been pulled over for anything in over ten years and today I got my first ticket in the WK2

Speeding on the freeway allegedly doing 86. I have only had my WK2 for a month! This has to be a record. Oh well..time to invest in a Valentine One!

Re: Speeding Ticket

86 is moving, speed limit 70 I'm guessing? cruise control at 72

or just move with the flow but stay out of the passing lane, ad I'm sure you know since you have been driving for 10+ years.

bummer.

Re: Speeding Ticket

I used to live in SoCal and 86 was pretty much the flow of traffic on the freeways...was it in a construction zone or something?

Why invest in a valentine one? Now your speeding ticket just got very expensive!! Not only do you have to pay the ticket fines, but now your gonna spend a few hundred on a radar detector ;-)

Save yourself the money and don't bother with those things. I will say though the Jeep is very smooth and incredibly quiet on the inside so it doesn't really feel like your going those speeds sometimes.

I think you meant to quote the original poster, not me. I have no interest in a radar detector.

Re: Speeding Ticket

Sorry to hear about the ticket. Can I ask what you have to pay down there for doing 86 in a (was it 60 or 70 zone)?

Its been so long since I got a speeding ticket. (touch wood)
I am really careful, plus I've been driving a Chrysler Pacifica for 6 years - not really a highway racer.
The Hemi GC is very nice on the highway. In Ontario and Quebec I set the cruise on 70 to 75, which is the average highway speed.
And I resist the urge to catch up when others pass me doing 80 - 85.
I'd rather THEY get the ticket, not me.

I'm hoping my luck holds in May. I'm driving to Baltimore, MD, and was planning on driving similarly.

I have a v1. They do nothing beneficial 95% of the time. Most police turn on the radar at the last second giving you no time to react. It has worked for me a few times when they leave on the gun when hiding in the woods. Typical on the NY thruway and the NJ parkway. Only got one ticket for speeding in a work zone. Gave me a break with a 1-5mph ticket when I was going well over 35 over.

Re: Speeding Ticket

I have a redline and it saves my a$$ all the time...3x on the way to the desert tonight (101, 134, 210 and 10 freeways) and I will NEVER drive without my radar detector. If you know the warning signs it helps a lot...I do a double left tap on the shifter into 4th to brake the rig without using the pedal...braking when it goes off is a tell tale sign to po po you have a detector...sorry to hear about the ticket, def sucks

Re: Speeding Ticket

I was awarded a speeding ticket the first week of JGC ownership by a State Trooper in VA on my way to Camp Lejeune. The trooper said I was going 88 in a 70 MPH zone. I swear it felt like I was doing about 65. The Jeep is so much quieter than my 97 Hummer with the 6.5TD. I never even came close to getting a speeding ticket the past 15 years in my Hummer.

x2...the Redline continues to impress me with its detection distance!

Re: Speeding Ticket

Be interesting to see what would happen if part of a ticket defense was that the speedo could not be easily read... (probably not a good idea, best ask a lawyer).
