Let's see, $600 for lawyer, $225 to get bike back and my $550 bond fee.

Just don't speed.

Wouldn't wreckless driving be a good thing?

20 to 24 mph over here in Colorado is a 6 point ticket and cost me $265. 25+ mph over is a felony if the officer wants to enforce it. I know I was going almost 30 over but was still cited for doing 24 over it was in a 55 on I-70 going with traffic. It's all up to the officer on what they want to do.

Don't count on that one. Many jurisdictions are using those tickets as a source of revenue - I believe it was Denver that has a line item for it in their budget, and they count on more income from those tickets because they're losing money on so many other sources.

Why exactly was it impounded? It should say exactly why in your paperwork.

Most states have a provision that two or three violations constitute "reckless" driving, which is an offense which allows for the impounding of your vehicle. If you were caught just speeding, I don't believe your car would have been impounded....at least not in California.

I understand laws vary from state to state, and I was just curious how the other states operate. Thanks for the information.
