Last night, I've had my truck for all of 6 hours when I get pulled over by a Texas Department of Public Safty (Texas's finest) and get a big fat ticket for 85mph. "But officer I just picked it up and am just getting used to it" which the officer says "You better slow that thing down, Boy, have a good evening"

Do I get the 1st place prize for getting the first ticket in their new truck?

Btw: The truck is great! It shifts clean and pulls hard (to 4000rpm for breakin!) ;)

We had a woman who goes by Viperess ( Louisianna ) get a ticket for 91 mph about the same time after she got her SRT-10 ( Viper ). She didn't get out of it either and she even has a Valentine 1. The officers in many States now have instant on/off and it is getting hard to avoid. Sorry for the hassle, but many out there probably will join you.

First Victim...!

Congrats MIGHT be in order, but try to work out that ticket with your local court. Some County/States offer a "deferment".. i.e., you pay a fine, and maybe some hours helping out old folks like myself, and if no more tickets for a year, the ticket is dropped from your driving record. Certainly worth the effort to ask about a "deferment" it could save you some $$ on the long run, once Mr. Insurance Agent gets wind of your error.

BTW, is your truck RED?

My SRT-4 has received two tickets in it, and it had less then 800 miles..

I wasnt driving it on either occasssion... but on the 2nd ticket, I was following the guy driving the car in one of my other cars, had the cruise set for 70mph, he had his set for 70mph, and we are in a 70mph zone... cop pulls him over for doing 87mph in a 70 -- I pulled over and I was like "thats my car, and we were both cruising at 70mph, no way was he doing 87" -- Sheriff wouldnt listen, so court here we come.

First ticket, the guy deserved. I told him to slow down, he didnt listen... bam, lights come on :)

WINNER!! ;) Hey, what's the use of owning the world's fastest production truck if you can't test it out a few (dozen) times! Be safe out there! :p

The Valentine was working fine, I was traveling east and the cop was traveling west at about 11:00pm. The 'instant on radar' went off just as he passed me. I knew I was busted.
Since the ticket was in Texas, it may not go on my record here in Colorado. Previous tickets that I have gotten down there have not shown up on my record.

Nav: My truck is bright red and looks goooood. I will have pictures up at http://srt10truck.com soon.

Late,
Taylor
