I had an expired insurance card because I forgot to put the new card in my wallet. The cop let me go with a warning.
I have been told I drive like a maniac speed wise.......but I know to slow down over hills and around corners. I also have a V1.
I received a ticket in my blue family sedan Camry 3 minths ago for going 37 in a 25.
I believe the ticket you red comes from people driving stupidly in their red cars.....at least this is my experience.
: I'm thinking about buying an 'arrest-me' red M3 (at least it doesn't have a spoiler, and it is a 4 door).
: I'm a little concerned that red color, especially on a car like the M3, will attrack undo polic attenition.
: So, for those of you with red BMWs, has this been a problem--or is it just a myth?
