i speed but just do it smartly, my buddy one time had twice the number of points you can have (without losing your license) but hired a good lawyer and got out of just about all of them... he averaged a ticket every 2-3 WEEKS for a good couple of months but got out of it...

basically diablo, just do your research and talk to the people at the DMV/court and figure it out... till then, drive slow

the cop's "estimate" your speed... its retarded. ive been walking and seen a kid run from the fatass cop in the middle of "rush-hour (between classes)" and him chasing the kid down yelling...

lets just say the kid won

That sounds borderline illegal. They have no right to take points off your license for speeding on a bicycle. No license is required to ride a bike and riding a bike is not the same as driving a car...

Frankly giving someone a ticket for speeding on a bicycle qualifies as one of the stupider things I've heard of...
