I broke the law tonight

I was speeding. 25 mph in a 20 mph zone. Yeah, I'm a rebel.

I went over to a friend's house to watch a movie, I'm going to have ride more at night. It's like a ghost town after midnight.

my buddie and i have been pulled over by the police twice. the first time was the most memorable. it was a big hill with a 30 zone. he clocked us at 40 or just under 40. the officer came up to us and almost kept it together when he was saying "ok guys, where's the fire". he lost it started belly laughing, told us to get lost got in his cruiser and left.

Been speeding many times but never pulled over for it. I would be proud to be pulled over for speeding on my bicycle

I'd ask for a ticket simply so I could frame it.

Powderhorn Drive - Phillipsburg, NJ

We used to bomb it in 9th and 10th grade. It was a residential 25mph zone and we would routinely hit around 40. A cop stopped me and a friend once and took us home to tell our parents.

my buddie and i always talked that it would have been nice to get the ticket for proof but neither of us know if here in mass if it would be concidered a moving violation. my car insurance is already too high as it is. police never did agree with my driving style

I've been pulled over a couple of times for speed on a bicycle....the %$#^ officer wouldn't even write me a warning, just a verbal.....he said I'd just post it on a Bike Forum somewhere and he wasn't going to reward bad behavior....

offenses:
37 in a 25
52 in a 35 on a long hill.
