Re: What is your most expensive speeding ticket?
Summer of '77. Running 105 mph cresting an overpass on I-57, two state cops standing on side of road. I think, well, they're just setting up, but as I lean towards the exit ramp, the scramble is on. Do I stop or run? They've never caught me before...so I run. Bad choice. It took 10 local, county & state cops plus one airplane to get me, but they did.
They had 10 charges against me that was consolidated to reckless driving and fleeing.
Fined $340. Lawyer $500. Missed about 3 days work dealing with this. Total close to $1200 bucks. Got the fleeing charge dropped ( damn good lawyer) And a stern warning from my lawyer not to ride through that town again in my lifetime on a motorcycle. Well, I do now seeing that all those guys are at least retired by now. But the lesson was learned, never again.
