Got my first speeding ticket Thursday

Well, my squeeky clean record is now stained a tad. I was going 73 in a 60 on CO 94 and a state troopy was in a huge line of traffic coming at me and got me head-on.

Anyway, only $68 4-pointer ticket and 2pts off if I mail it in. I'm not going to fight it as I was going 13 over. - Man I really need to get my speedo recalibrated in my '94 f150. My speedo only showed 68 due to my larger tires. That, and or, his radar gun was off.

This young trooper (Sgt. Lupton) comes up to my truck and puts his hand on his gun and looks in my truck bed for about 10secs (and it's completely empty) and I'm thinkin' "Is this guy checking out my Rhinoliner or what" and then slowly walks up to the cab (with his hand still on his gun) then goes from there. And I'm thinkin', 'this guys a city slicker newbie on the force.'

I was hoping he'd let me off because of my clean record but then I figured i was going a little fast to get off, especially for a trooper. I survived almost 4 years of my teenage driving record without being caught.
