I was driving home from the junk yard today, on a narrow back road, doing 50 in a 45. my front right wheel got caught in the ditch, and i over corrected, and i cut my wheels to hard, and my car rolled once, landing on the roof. The officer that arrived @ the scene said i was going 54 in a 45, bs! he also gave me a ticket for: operating a motor vehicle in a manner not reasonable and proper=$218.90 fine, and a busted lude, just thought id let you guys know.

Hope your okay mang. tell me this how is getting your tire stuck in a ditch not reasonable or driving in a improper manner? fuckin cops, just because they have the authority they think they're above the law.

Because they know that he can't prove what happened, and the cops have nothing better to do then abuse their authority whenever possible.

We are glad that you are ok, zelseman. Too bad about the Prelude. If she can be fixed, then do so, if not, then get another one and relive the Prelude experience.

go to court about the ticket...

if they have no proof... you'll get off... easy as that... or at least thats the way it is here...

sorry about the car!

Hide it quick before butter buys it off of you! lol

I'm sorry to hear about the car as well.

Now about the ticket. I forgot which thread it was, but one of us had very VERY useful information on how to dispute a ticket. Some form that you're supposed to request from the court. Disposition or something. I forgotten. But you can look around for the thread. Its not too old. And it was very very helpful. Should've been made a sticky for all of us to see haha. Our very own legal advice against stupid tickets.

Dont pay that ticket if he can not prove the speed. challenge it. Its bad enough about the loss of the car, now you have to pay the state/county? Give me a break.

The cop said that since there was an accident, then he HAD to right a ticket, and he said that it is my duty as a driver to stay on the road, and that i failed that, so i would be punished...real dickhead. Im ok, nothing wrong at all. My car on the other hand has the front windshield, back window knocked out. My front bumper got ripped off,1 busted tailight, a dented trunk, dented rear panel, dented roof, blown passenger window, really jacked up hood, broken antenna, and much more...
Im ok, i guess thats all that matters, and im either gonna repair it, or part it out and buy another one, or a cb7, cant decide on which one. My uncle is a cop in our county, and he thinks he can talk to the DA and get the ticket off my record and to where i dont have to pay it. so its all good.

Just because 'pop' has moved on doesn't make his songs suddenly horrible. If you liked them back then, chances are you'll still like them now. Besides, aren't we all trapped in the 80's with our loverly 80's sportscars? :) :)

i went and saw the lude, and it looks like i need a new:
hood
trunk lid
drivers side tailight
both headlights
drivers quater panel
both fenders
back glass
possibly front bumper
= buttload of body work
the only problem i saw with the engine, is when i went to start it, my timing belt(i assume is what goes around the right side of the motor) Isnt turning, and its making a kind of screeching sound...who knows, it will be at my house tommorow at 1, so ill have pics then.
