The bat out of hell got caught.

In 28 years of driving, I have had three tickets: one for hitting an [illegally] parked car*, and two for rolling stop signs.  I have never gotten a speeding ticket from either Highway Patrol or local cops.

Until tonight.

Coming off a hill heading south into Redding, California, I was tagged doing 86 in a 65 mph zone. Considering I was actually doing ninety higher up, it was a fair cop.

Damn.  That's over $200 down the drain.

On the other hand, 28 years without a speeding ticket is not too shabby.

*My explanation to the judge that my car had slid on gravel, and that had the other car not been illegally parked to begin with I wouldn't have hit it, totally failed to fly.
