Going from a 4cyl diesel hilux to my ute has crashed me to earth.
94 in a 60... $565 fine, 4 points and i will no doubt be disqualified for 3 months right?
Oh, and i dont want or need sympathy and im not asking for it, i am stupid and thats that, i just felt the need to say it out loud.
Nice clear road, zero cars and 2 blocks from my house where i know cops hammer it every 2nd weekend.... i just gave it a stab and knocked it to second, it didnt feel that quick but hey, the nice man gave me a ticket to prove it. I was on the brakes and back to 60 before i even saw them wave the flashy sticks.
Bugger bugger bugger, work will no doubt be interesting, i wonder how many tools i can carry on my back.... ooh and how many sand/cement bags can i carry, i will let you know, until then -take it easy all. Im going to have a drink and kick myslf :(
Hey if ya go to court ya can usually get ya license back an a couple of points if ya need it for work.
Just tell em you'll end up un-employed an on the dole if they take it away from ya an they'll let ya keep it. Works down here in SA anyway.
