So how do you avoid being stopped by the police while operating a motor vehicle? Well, first things first. Red cars attract the most attention on the road. My good friend Paul Maddalena use to say red sports cars are like a Matador’s cape to a bull. While we all like to floor it on an open stretch of road, you reduce your chances of having that much fun, and not getting ticketed when driving a red car. The odds of getting a speeding ticket in the US are about 1 in 20. That’s an average number, and isn’t designated by make, or color of the car. Revenue from speeding tickets accounts for approximately 6 billion (with a B) dollars a year. It’s big (with a B) business, and that’s life in the fast lane.
It can be especially tempting to speed when stuck behind a slow moving vehicle carrying a big load. With all the new construction taking place, large trucks have been slowing traffic on our roadway system lately. Passing these vehicles and their pilot car is tricky and can easily result in a speeding ticket.
