    Ha! What a dumbass cop. I'll get this sumbitch for reckless driving instead of just writing a speeding ticket anbd getting on with life. Still they found something fuck him for. $300 for insurance? They got what they wanted they just had a rare occasion where they looked foolish doing it. In reality the guy saved money by paying $300 for a fine instead of $5000/yr for insurance.

    Yup. I honestly can't believe otherwise smart people get all upset about 130mph. Wow. Hell, if a guy was riding alone, in an otherwise safe manner at 85mph on a deserted highway, I'd just let him go, if I were a cop. The only reason the guy went to 130+ is because the cop chased him. :)

    I agree that speed alone should not determine reckless driving. But in this case the guy took off and speed up after a cop was on him. He shoulda been fined/thrown in jail for evading police.

    He better be glad he wasn't in Arkansas. Wreckless driving is automatic if you get a speeding ticket for, I think, more than 20 mph over the limit.

    Yep, but they did go for the reckless, bad call. My brother would have had their asses.
