    Driving home from NY tonight (picking up a block and tranny) I got caught in a speed trap. I was doing 52 in a 50... it dropped to a 35 and I saw the lights. Well I gave him my PBA card along with the whole thing. He went back to his car. Came back 10 minutes later with a ticket for 17 over and everything but my PBA card... but he said "that PBA card was a little old, do you have a newer one?" I simply told him that the newest one I have is 2005. (Lost my 2006 one in December of 2006) He told me to have the cop call him and talk to him.

    Now do you think this means that once the cop talks to him he will drop the ticket?

    Also, there is no number or website on the ticket. Anyone happen to know how to contact Ramapo, New York PD? Rockland County.

    And last question, I know NY points won't transfer to NJ but anyone know how much I'm looking at if I get stuck paying this ticket?

    Once the ticket is written, he can't really drop it.

    He can forget to go to court though.

    police and blah blah association.


    get out of jail free card. it means that you have a family member or friend thats in law enforcement and its a courtesy to give their family members preferential treatment, so yours receives the same if they get pulled over.

    Yes, but in order for the officer to be able to legitimately do anything about the ticket now that its written - you'll need to plead not guilty and either have the officer talk to the prosecutor and have him drop the ticket, or just have your friend/family member talk to the officer so the officer knows not to show in court.

    I had a hard enough time finding the number to send my cop. I have no idea how much the ticket is.

    Got word from my dad's friend today. I have to go up there for the court date but I just have to talk to the cop before hand and he's going to help me out. Thank God it happens to be on the local election day and I don't have class.
