yah that works! So a story for you guys and I'm pretty pissed though...

So Yesterday I came back from a weekend at the lake.. it's about a 550 km trip there and back. and I had just dropped my gf off at her place. I told her that I was pretty much empty and I was going to fill up on the way home.

So I left her place and I was going towards the husky station (for those in edmonton 153 Ave) and I pretty much ran out of gas because I heard the engine bucking and sputtering a bit so I just dropped into 3rd and got some speed so I could just coast into the gas station. The thing was, it was about 3 blocks away and I had to be at least 80 to get to the gas station.

As I hit 90 the engine died and I put it in to neutral and right there a cop, going the OPPOSITE DIRECTION turns on his lights and points at me. I pulled over. He came over and was like your going 30 over the limit. I told him why and he just looks at me. Walked back to his car. Wrote me a ticket and said "Everyone gets tickets". So at that point I told him that I didnt have any gas and he just looked at me and walked away.

He didn't even ask if I needed help. He drove off. I tried to start my car... Got it going for about 20 m and then it died again. So I ended up pushing my car to the station. Talk about being an a**hole. I even told him I'm going to have to push my car to the station and he just looked at me and then drove off.

I know I was over the limit but with due reason, what do you guys think? I plan to take it to court and get it at least reduced.

PS. new mileage record for me 551km on 1 tank of 92 octane gas.

Oh yah SiRR I work until 6 :( so I probably would be there by like 7

That sucks getting a ticket. Think it depends on the cop and what he feels like doing, warning would have been nice. I say, fight it, and bring it into the JP and get a reduction of some sort. I do that with my occasional photo radar tickets :). Last one was $180 bucks, spent 15 min. waiting at the law courts, got it knock down to $90!

Really, $100USD or CDN? So far I can find some for $52 USD, but the freaking shipping is almost $60 USD...$112 + duties and taxes...damn..might have to keep searching around. I did get my JDM "H" badging in, so I'll be putting them on tonight. :thumb:

Nothing much new - holidays in 2.5 weeks, so looking forward to some time off! Slowly moving into my place, just finished painting a couple rooms, now time to get some furniture :p
