Default Stupid Hemi

So I never speed. I mean NEVER.

The last time I got a ticket I was 16.

I drive a stretch of highway to work and back everyday that is 70 MPH and changes to 55 MPH about 10 minutes from my work.

I am the ONLY moron that actually slows to 55 MPH when the speed limit changes. I am always having some jerk flying up behind me and swooping around and always feel like its a matter of time before I get run over.

Then today, some A-Hole is so close to my rear bumper I can't even see their windshield. I had a momentary lapse and put the pedal down.

State trooper gets me at 74 in a 55.

I literally sped for about 15 seconds and got a ticket, about 1 mile before the 70 MPH change.

How about that for luck.

P.S. Another bad luck tale.

A bird pooped into my open sunroof about 2 weeks ago while I was moving at 55 MPH.

It knicked the headliner and shotgun blasted the entire left side of the backseat. Thank goodness my son wasn't in the car or he woulda got blasted.

Maybe my truck is cursed.

Yeah that is some rotten luck man. Hopefully you got that bird poop out and that sucks about the ticket. They always get yah when you least expect it. I feel the same way that my truck is cursed, but for me it is the product of my own stupidity.

I'm sure it will be okay in the long run.

story sounds like one of mine,
i just bought the brand new Ram, didn't know that Dodge in their supreme wisdom decided not to put DRLs on vehicles sold in the USA. I falsely ASSumed that every new vehicle had them, no Ifs, Ors, or Buts
We have a couple Highways where DRLs are required 24/7
almost nobody pays attention to it & they don't get a ticket. I am law abiding most of the time, & i was used to driving a Chevy truck that was 10 years old & it had DRLs.
Any way a Highway Patrol saw me approaching his assigned spot & waved me in, never gave me a chance, he must have had everything but my info on the ticket, because he gave me a ticket so fast, it surprised me, $230 ticket, that the judge reduced after learning that my truck was brand new & didn't come with DRLs. I paid $50 & got a point against my license. effin POS dodge for cutting corners

In the 7 Years I've been driving, I've never been pulled over. Not in my 94 Grand Cherokee, not in my 05 Grand Cherokee, and not in my '08 Tundra. I have never really changed my driving habits. Sometimes I do speed ( ) but obviously have never been caught. Then, about 10 days into owning my RAM, I get pulled over by a motorcycle cop. He got me doing 77 in a 45 (right after it dropped from a 55) but thankfully he gave me courtesy and let me go.

Your truck is fine, your speed ticket was just bad luck. It is so easy to speed in those 5.7 Hemi trucks, I've found my self speeding without noticing many times. I have not been caught yet, but I am watching my speed carefully lately. I also had my only speed ticket 22 years ago, at 16 years of age. (2 speed warnings with my Honda CBR 600 ops!!)
