Here’s the deal…
Check back a little later and I’ll take you down the long and winding road of this year’s Auto Show at Bartle Hall. I’ll touch on the hotties, the notties, what to expect and the unexpected. But first, a few words from Speeding Ticket lawyer Casey Raskob from the April issue of Car and Driver. You know, a little news maybe you could use.
Starting with the "biggest truths about why and whom cops give tickets to."
""Realistically, when it comes to tickets, sports cars come first, then motorcycles," Raskob says. "Anything that makes speed obvious. It doesn’t have to be expensive, it just has to get their attention; put a wing on your Civic. "Rich guys go second, any of your status brands. In New York City, I’ve sat behind cops who apparently only write up BMW, Land Rover, Porsche, Mercedes and Audi."
What to not fail to do:
"Fight every ticket because it’s an odds game," Raskob urges. "There are odds of getting a ticket. There are odds of being pulled over by a good cop or a bad cop. There are odds of getting a write-down. When you go to court, there are odds of getting a break. Most judges are looking to give you a break – if you’re deserving."
And then there are the odds of Raskob urging speeders to pay big bucks to lawyers like him to fight tickets so he can drive a BMW. Land Rover, etc. And odds that he’s kissing up to prospective judges about their being fair-minding in the likely event that they’ll be reading C&D’s story.
And now, a moment of silence please, for the motorcycle drivers and the rich guys…
