$264 ticket

120 in an 80 zone on a deserted 6-lane freeway at 3am.

In my defense, it was literally deserted until the fucking ghost car sneakily merged onto the road right behind me and clocked me.

I am going to hell.

In Britain that would have been an automatic ban. I presume we're talking MPH here?

120mph would certainly raise my opinion of Asher some, though.

For reserving my future travel there, I was PAID a bonus of $25,000,000.00.

$264? I think you got off quite lightly considering the exchange rate...

That's CDN$264, which works out at roughly two shillings and sixpence.

I am going to continue disobeying speeding laws.

A few months ago they doubled the speeding ticket fines.

Wombat, you forgot to convert the 3am. What's 3am in Britain?

I considered it, but I would've got it wrong, zmama style, and I considered the British measurement to be the inferior in that case, since only the local version was relevant to the statement.

I'd like to know what a 6-lane freeway in Alberta was doing with an 80 klick speed limit.

Calgary, Canada's capital of conservatism.

The whole purpose is to get revenues from speeders.

So much of the speed limits in Calgary are ridiculously low.

It's probably a remnant from the past: Many moons ago, there were traffic lights all over the street.

They've since all been changed to overpasses and whatnot, so there's no traffic lights, but the limit remains 80.
