FELONY?? 4pts on license here as oppoed to 3 for 10mph or less over.

Isn't Arizona where we used to have the American Autobahn? Freakin overkill.

Edit- A website for AZ. Says 20 over or 85mph is reckless. Damn.

And it was Montana in the 90's that tried the no speed limit thing on highway. Germans started comming to drive there due to crowding on their autobahn.

REASONABLE FINES FOR SPEEDING

As many times as someone has posted about getting pulled over- I'm glad you did it again.

I had to go and check that it is 4pts for 16mph plus over posted limit and 3pts up to 15 over.

mrlopez, radar detectors are fine if the officer is using stationary or moving radar. I use a laser radar on cars they are hit everytime. Motorcycles are harder because of the smaller radar signature, further we "aim" at the headlights since the headlights are the most reflective part of the vehicle. The closer you mount the radar detector (it better have a laser detector built in) to the headlight the better you are off. As a note the laser signature at 800 feet away is only as wide as a stop sign. Keep that in mind. This is why laser radar units are incredibly more accurate and harder to defeat. Hope this helps.
