Default It Could Be His Lucky Day

That’s true. However, depending on the situation, the ticket may not be for 100 mph. Some LEO would be nice. Of course, a RD in sight may make that leniency less likely. A couple years ago, traffic was laden on the left lane of a 4-lane highway for about 1/2 mile (folks in MD do that a lot). I was on right lane and took off at ~95. An unmarked who was stuck in left lane came after me. He was nice - I believe it ended up being a faulty equipment ticket, meaning no points. It was Christmas time, so he told me Santa was nice to me!

In another case, I was doing, maybe 70/75 in a 55. LEO pulls me over and asks why I was speeding. I told him “no particular reason.” He looks at me with a dumbfounded look and grin and gave me a warning “for being honest,” he said.

Pulled over and got nice ticket.
If we put all the moral aside about driving fast, what did i do wrong? why max2 couldn't catch it? Are there any other technology which could catch this?
I think by now you know what happened. I’m curious though - how bad was then ticket? For 100+ mph (that would be felonious in pretty much anywhere in the US) or less?

When speeding at high speed, be sure to have a rabbit (car) in front of you so he will be the first ALARM (set off detector).
