It’s simple to avoid getting a road traffic speeding ticket. Simply buy a Tornado fighter aircraft.
I want one!

Do you want the jammer or the part that locks on the missile to the hostile force and fires it?
I’ll just take the jet and if they can catch me then I’ll take the ticket.
Wish my mum had known about that before she got two speeding tickets/fines last year
“Hostile radar equipment”…I’m sure many drivers would agree with that description
That’s great… hopefully there are plenty of low flying maneuvers in the area that I’m driving. I would love to get out of a few tickets.
Speeding Ticket - USMC Style
Top this for a speeding ticket
Two California Highway Patrol Officers were conducting speeding enforcement on I-15, just north of the Marine Corps Air Station at Miramar, California . One of the officers was using a hand held radar device to check speeding vehicles approaching the crest of a hill.
The officers were suddenly surprised when the radar gun began reading 300 miles per hour. The officer attempted to reset the radar gun, but it would not reset and then turned off.
Just then a deafening roar over the treetops revealed that the radar had in fact locked on to a USMC F/A -18 Super Hornet which was engaged in a low flying exercise near the location.
Back at the CHP Headquarters the Patrol Captain fired off a complaint to the USMC Base Commander.
The reply came back in true USMC style:
Thank you for your letter. We can now complete the file on this incident.
You may be interested to know that the tactical computer in the Hornet had detected the presence of, and subsequently locked on to, your hostile radar equipment and automatically sent a jamming signal back to it, which is why it shut down.
Furthermore, an Air-to-Ground missile aboard the fully armed aircraft had also automatically locked on to your equipment location.
Fortunately, the Marine Pilot flying the Hornet recognized the situation for what it was, quickly responded to the missile system alert status and was able to override the automated defense system before the missile was launched to destroy the hostile radar position.
The pilot also suggests you cover your mouths when cussing at them, since the video systems on these jets are very high tech. Sergeant Johnson, the officer holding the radar gun, should get his dentist to check his left rear molar. It appears the filling is loose. Also, the snap is broken on his holster.
Thank you for your concern. Semper Fi.

Urban Legend Alert!
Hehe, well. I knew the story was false before i posted it. I know a traffic policeman very well. He already told me that very few radar based hand held units were in use, they now use laser units which are accurate upto 1.5Km. Whereas a radar based unit is only accurate upto a 300 meters. He also pointed out that, a sidewinder missile was an air to air missile and tracked a heat signature, not a ground based radar beam.
But, i thought it was worth a chuckle and posted it anyway.
I fell for it :o…til crossg made his post
[QUOTE=Arachne;2075346]I fell for it [/QUOTE]Me to when i first read it, until i asked “the well known policeman” if he’d heard anything about it.
I was in the Canadian Airforce for 17+ years and you can trust me when I say there is stuff that goes on that you wouldn’t believe with fighter pilots and their aircraft (toys). We used to get calls all the time about F18’s flying inverted over nude beaches, buzzing fishing boats (complaining of not catching any fish), flying up ski lifts low inverted and killing livestock by flying too low and fast. The standard question to the people complaining was. Did you get the tail number of that aircraft.
I just flutter my lashes and smile a lot, usually keeps me from getting traffic tickets
Iz only 1 Speeding ticket in my Life .Was 1982 In my MINI " do You know You Were Doing 135 km an hour " WHAT " no Officer Didnt know a MINI can go that Fast"

I got like 4 different version of this e-mail in the past 3mo, intriging and amusing, but I am wondering if it is a real story… hmmm
[QUOTE=Arachne;2075482]I bet he took the mick before telling you [/QUOTE]He wouldn’t dare.
