My first ticket :(

I guess after 10 years of driving, my luck ran out. Last week I was trying to get to an airport about an hour away and I got lost. I was about 30 minutes away when I got the right directions, then I see the flashing lights/siren behind me.

He got me for 70mph in a 55 which was what my cruise was set at. He told me he was following me for a bit, but I was so concentrated on looking for airport signs, I didn't glance in the mirror for a while. If I would of looked in my mirror and slowed down, I think he would of passed by me. Whoops! Not the best way to start off owning the WRX, so I'll have to be a bit more careful.

In the end it's a $180 ticket and I'll have to take the online class to keep the points off and insurance from rising. I ended up being more late to the airport after sitting on the road for 30 minutes w/ the cop, so the speeding was a waste. Oh well, lesson learned; life goes on. Keep an eye on those mirrors people, those cops can creep up!

Should have got a lawyer!! Would have been cheaper and you would be able to skip the classes.

how would paying a lawyer be cheaper than 180 dollars? they cost way more than that.

Red is a nice/rare color on the WRX, but I would never get a red car for that reason

UGH I just got a speeding ticket at 6:05am this morning on my way to work, 57 in a 40 (he gave me a break as it was a 30mph zone) and also asked me about my exhaust, which is only SPT and I told him it was a "Subaru Product" Eh I figured it would happen sooner or later, and actually im surprised it took this long, almost 2 months.

I keep telling you guys. Cops hate fart cans. Put a twin tip on there and it wouldn't matter how big the pipes were.

I definitely wouldnt consider the SPT a fart can, it barely looks bigger than stock. The only reason he said anything was because the car was decently loud at idle.
