    Default Pulled over 173 stony on my bike. Best options?

    Hecklers welcome, I was going way to fast even though I felt it was a safe stretch of road.

    Such a terrible feeling seeing the lights passing behind me in the shoulder lane. I just put my turn signal on and pulled over.

    The cop was a hard ass although he did not tow my bike and allowed me to drive to work.

    First thing I did was call Pointts and booked in with Charlie.
    He has come thru for me in my late teens.
    No tickets the last 15 years or so but I did lose my licence 3 times in my late teens 1 month, 6 month and 1 year.

    Just looking for some feedback from fellow speeders as to what my best course of action is.

    A guy from work told me to show up early to court (aug 20) and try and convince the cop to change the ticket to registered owner ticket and pay a big fine.

    Charlie thinks sometime this coming winter I will end up paying a $1500 fine and a 30 day suspension.

    Feedback needed asap

    I'm more interested in where on Stoney you were busted and where/how the Cop was hiding. Not to grill you or anything, I just want to know if there's somewhere I need to be watching extra carefully.

    so did you get a speeding ticket or did you get a mandatory court appearance? if it's the latter; you won't be able to go in to see a first appearance prosecutor

    No kidding I drive Stoney a few times a week in the Northwest part and there are stretches where it's perfectly safe to drive that speed....harsh.

    I can tell you as a former RCMP that some of that is BS.

    Depending on the nature of the stop, you are far likely to get a warning with saying, "yea I was an idiot and I totally blew that stop sign, sorry constable".

    However, laser traps are manned by Traffic cops who dont care AND in the situation like the OP you KNOW youre in shit and definitely should "lawyer up" immediately.

    they love to hide under the bridge at metis and at mcknight, they hide behind the pillars, you cant see them, but they can see you, they're there all the time, my wife drives that stretch every day and sees them at least once a week.

    Man I was driving on Stoney last week and was reminiscing about the insane speeds we used to do when we were younger and it had just opened. I am glad I don't speed like that anymore as I'm sure I would have lost my license by now if I did.

    Good luck op.

    Is all the info on the ticket correct? I'm surprised they didn't impound the bike, I thought speeding over 50km = maxi today court date and impound.

    I got caught just passing under Deerfoot stony northbound in the far left lane that eventually ends. I am always careful to check off ramp traffic. This officer was in a completely stock Dodge half ton non tinted windows.

    I looked in my review mirror and saw a truck passing traffic in the shoulder, at that point I started slowing down and pulled over when his lights came on.

    Mandatory court appearance, white ticket.

    First thing he said to me was "I hope you know your walking from here"

    I pled my case and he let me continue to ride to work.

    First thing I did when I got to work was book in with Charlie

    All the info on the ticket was bang on so that's a no go

    Charlie said best case I'm looking at a $1500 fine and 30 days suspension sometime In the winter

    Drive a cooler vehicle.

    I got pulled over doing 230-240 in an 80. Cop was behind me in a marked car, I didn't realize he was there, doing 80, then put it into 3rd and did a rolling burnout and away to 200+ ... and all I got was a 'cool car, pay more attention and don't do that again'.

    ^my god. If you were a smokin' knock out of a chick I could somewhat believe that, a little..... but as a guy? Fuck... yeah you must have had one helluva cool car. Damn, I never heard of anyone getting off that easy while doing anything of that sort.

    This.

    I have been commuting from Airdrie for 4 weeks and see them either behind the pillars or with someone pulled over a little ways down the road basically every day around 8:00am. First time I was going maybe 5 over the limit and had no clue he was even there till he whipped out to pull another vehicle over. Now I just drive like an old man on Stoney.

    Usually see two black and whites, a dark cherry ghost car and then a dark blue truck working Stoney every day. Cash cow.

    Oh thought it was you that I saw until you posted where you were pulled over. Saw a bike pulled over with a guy in the back seat of a marked cruiser on EB Stoney between Country Hills and Sarcee. I always see people pulled over on Stoney (usually unmarked vehicles) but never see any actual traps.

    I don't think Pointts is worth it in the current traffic court environment where they have a firmer stance against RO tickets. Go down, plead your case yourself with the officer and/or crown before the actual trial and your fine will probably be quite similar to what Charlie is thinking, and you save the fees you pay to Pointts.

    It was worth it to pay them to get a RO ticket back in the day, but that doesn't happen anymore.

    Just my 65 cobra.

    I think it was because of how absurd the situation was - he was literally right behind me, I'm doing the speed limit for like 5km or so, then all of a sudden a rolling burnout, bam to 200+ and back down to 80. And he even ended up having to chase me a km or so, lights and siren blaring, because i had no idea he was behind me until I went into a turn lane (straight piped V8+no mirrors = only what's ahead of me is important).

    when he got out he was initially PISSED and he started off by saying 'how come you didn't pull over....why couldn't you see me.........hey, where are your mirrors?'

    And I was like 'uhhhh, they fell off and are at the bodyshop being repainted?'

    And then he had this 'oh for fvcks sake' look, told me cool car don't do that shit again and went back to his cruiser.

    But karma balanced out because last year i got pulled over on Deerfoot doing like 103 (yes, 3 or 4km over the limit) because i passed a marked car (again, 3 or 4km over the limit) and he got all offended by that

    So those are the only times I've ever been pulled over - doing around 150 over the limit and doing 4 over the limit

    6 years back I got 75 over on groat road in Edmonton on my bike. 136 in a 50. It was my first ticket and I paid 1500$ plus 6 demerits. Never lost my license. The guy before me was 200+ in a 100 with high demerits and they took his bike plus a fine quite larger than mine. Totally up to the judge.

    We had a go kart on stoney when they were still working on it and all we got was a "that's cool but you can't be here doing that!". My friends cart was going fast enough that the front tires lifted without the front vailence (it's not track approved). We tried really hard but the cops wouldn't take it for a spin, cool guys though.
    If you get angry at my post please re-read as a joke or sarcasm.
