ISF SPEED
Default Speeding Tickets?

Well I just got my 2nd speeding ticket in the IS-F. So the question is how many speeding tickets, if any, do you guys have. The first time I was dissapointed because it was my very first ticket in all my years of driving. But the 2nd time I was like " **** I got caught," haha.

I rather hold a conversation either on the phone or face to face with my friends.

ZERO while driving the F. Highest speed w/o being caught = 140mph (approx.).

It's all about your driving habits, regardless of the car. I used to have 3+ speeding tickets when I drove around my 1996 Impreza, but I as acquired better performing vehicles, my record got "cleaner". I think it's a combination of growing up and getting "smarter" about speeding (ie. knowing when/where to speed and how much you try to push your luck).

My case is exactly like yours. Never had a ticket before and I racked up two in a year with the F. I now have a passport 9500xi to keep out of trouble.

Is this total or in the ISF?

I just got a drag racing ticket wasn't even worth it I knew I would destroy the other car but he took off and with a car full of guys I didn't feel like losing to a saab lol.

Oh well lesson learned. Thank God for lawyers though. Its my first ticket, I got one back in HS but went to driving school for it.

I have none, ever. I'm 9 years clean.

I do speed (not as much as most) and don't own a radar detector. I guess I just know where all the cop spots are around here.

It's been many years, I've learned my lesson, I have slowed down a lot in my later years. I enjoy the ride too much now.

My step-son, on the other hand... He's lost his license 3 times now (he has a Subbie WRX), it will be THREE YEARS until he drives again, starting about a month ago. He'll be selling the car this summer.

I have one speeding ticket. It was for going 80 in a 70 in a Mustang i just rented for work travel. He got me by pacing instead of radar, good thing i didn't take my radar detector with me in the rental - cops don't like it when they pull you over and you have a radar =P

I have 1 that I had got in Japan, that I had to pay almost $1000 for the fine. Then I got one last year here because I was late for work ehhh. Thank god the fines aren't like Japan.

Now I have radar which is illegal in my state, but it's built into my rear view mirror so cops wont even know

Wow how did that happen....lost his license 3 times and still hasn't learned his lesson. You need to beat some sense into him lol.

To the poster above, I meant how many tickets have you got in the IS-F, but I guess thats why my thread got moved to the clubhouse.

If it weren't for these **** motorcycle cops like would be perfect.

Just celebrated 20 years of driving. Only one speeding ticket. The older I've become, the more I realize the value of lower insurance costs and not taking safety risks. This works out well for events like Taste of Lexus, when I can let it all out and not worry.
