    So, I have been driving a Tacoma since I was 16, and finally got my first speeding ticket; 65 in a 45. The officer of course asked my, "Do you know why I pulled you over?" To which my response was, "Yes sir, I was going 65 in a 45." (I had my cruise control set.) I have court on Cinco de Mayo! I think I am going to get this ticket framed and hang it in my office at the court house where I work!

    Ugh....Never admit what you were doing. Don't give the officer a hard time- but don't give your rights away like that either.

    UTC is Uniform Traffic Citation. I would never admit what I did wrong unless I knew I could get out of it. I'm not that stupid. This ticket will be dismissed by about noon tomorrow. I'm not one to name drop, so I didn't at the traffic stop, but it really helps to know people. However, I am usually the one whose name gets dropped. It really pisses me off. That's why I don't EVER name drop.

    No, it isn't dismissed yet. I have to go to court that day anyway due to my job, so I will just take care of it then. Yes, it's just as bad, but I wanted to show the others that I wasn't a retard for admitting that I was in fact speeding. I try my best to stay out of Oxford! haha

    Yeah, that was me, but I never said anything about a drunk person driving. It was my truck though.

    Why do you try and stay out of Oxford? They are the most laid back cops around! You have to be doing something REALLY bad to get them to pull you over. :laugh: I know a bunch of cops in Calhoun Co. and even more know of me. Guess I am connected too..haha.

    I was just joking about steering clear of Oxford. Hell, I bought my first Tacoma at Sunny King! I know a few Oxford cops, I buy a lot of stuff at Academy PX down there on Snow Street (formerly Lessco of Anniston).

    I buy all my pants from Academy PX. I used to be a Corrections Officer at Calhoun County Jail, so I had to buy a few supplies for that job from there too...yes, I am old enough to buy things there. I always go out to the Choccolocco Management Area to ride. Kentuck is pretty fun too.
