well, tonite as i was going through hastings street in the red light district, a cop jumped out in front of me and made me pull over. gave me a ticket for speeding (when i was going the limit). anyway, i've had just about enough of these vancouver prick cops who are just filling their damn quota or something on me. i drive a hell of a lot, so i guess im more prone to being caught (and ya, i speed a lil', but still). i dont mean to be a whiner, but im gonna lose my license for a year for all the times ive been a couple kph over. hence, im probably gonna sell my jetta, which is a real piss off for me cuz i love my car like nothing else on earth. i know i didnt have to post this and go on like a little bitch about my affairs, but im just venting.

Wtf? Dispute the ticket and you'll have over 8 months to walk away scot free.
Do you have a ton of tickets on your record or something?

Re: looks like im losing my license for a year... (dlin15)

man, i've been there done that. if you dispute, you'll have time for your probation to run out (i assume you're on probabtion since you say you're losing you license). normally they put you on for 6 months. like deception said, if you dispute, it'll be around 8 months to get a date, and that will be a while after...if it doesn't give you enough time (they file the ticket 30 days after court if you're found guilty), you can always go to the courthouse and say that you can't make the date and ask for a postponed date. i know, it may be a little shady, but it's happened to me where i've gotten tickets for the dumbest things, and it's not fair that they take away your license just cause you got so many tickets in a short time span.
but if you were driving without a license (which is possible, due to the punishment you mentioned) then you're looking at jail time as well, and there's nothing you can do about that...

sorry dude

get a lawyer. Maybe you need to lose your license for a year to appreciate the "priveledge" of driving.

well, since u wont be driving around for a bit, maybe u could find the time to look up the correct spelling of dictionary... or maybe vortex has no spell check, and these posts arent graded for proper spelling so who cares.

I'd goto court. If the cop caught you with a LASER detector, your chances of winning are very slim. If they caught you with a radar detector or you had cars next to you, you may have a chance of winning. I've won several cases in the past with radar detectors.

People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones! If you're going to flame someone for spelling you should, at a minimum, check your own spelling.

Why are the cops at fault for your driving violations?
Because they caught you?

Wrong. It's easier than you think to get off of a Laser ticket. There are a TON of technicalities you need to be aware of...
