Ticket

Picked up my first bmw ever - X4M and got a speeding ticket. By the time I realized I was speeding it was too late. Bummed out. Haven't gotten tickets in ages till now

What do y'all use to prevent this? Radar? Or just don't speed lol

Some use radar detectors and some are just lucky lol. It’s easy to exceed 100mph accidentally by just overtaking a slower vehicle. I need a radar detector.

Radar is def a good idea. Not speeding, well let's not get crazy

Depending on how fast they got you, it might be worth getting a lawyer to have them talk it down.

I found this out driving back from the dealer at night. No ticket, but looked at the speedo at one point and was like “whoops”.

I personally use the Wayz app if there are a lot of other drivers around me

Waze is great, but keep in mind it only works when there are lots of other drivers on the road. I learned that lesson the hard way on a stretch of near empty interstate in South Carolina.

Waze, I am normally in high traffic areas so it is good enough to rely on. Also if I'm local I know the usual hangout spots for speed traps. That said like others have said if you're in open roads and rural areas it's not going to be good enough. I don't speed like I used to, but man it is hard not to in this car.

Yeah, you feel like you are going so slow in these cars and then you realize you are doing 80 in a 65 😆

V1

Valentine 1 Gen 2 and CHP 11-99 Membership in LA best defense. However, it did not save me driving my kid to school, Love the LAPD Motorcycle cops. To make it worse there was a Tesla going much faster and he pulled me over.

V1 One (was a valentine's day gift many years ago from wife, best gift ever) on dash, waze turned on and look 3 seconds forward 1 second rear view mirror driving all the time for me. Don't use detector in VA and DC cause those Troopers will lock you up if busted using one there. I used to scan opposite side of the highway as well when I was younger but that takes a lot of toll on you mentally and physically on a long drive. Don't speed constantly, slow down a bit where cops hide, usually back of an onramp and come from behind, highway dividers where they make a U-turn. Don't drive on left lane constantly(illegal in some states like mine, NJ) and when its lighter traffic hide in middle lane, close the gap and slingshot using left to middle and so on like they drive in Europe. I am talking to you NY drivers on NJTP Obviousbly if another lunatic is coming up fast on your six let them go and get on ther tail leaving some gap. Its best if you get a tailer also so that you are sandwiched and less chance of being puller over. Don't buy a red/yellow car or anything with a wing. Unfortunately German cars are also secondary targets after civics with huge useless wings! Get a PBA card from a cop friend and use it when pulled over. If you hear a plane and saw a sign saying speed checked by aircraft, slow down. Most cops work 9-5 shift so less of them at night time. Those are my tips folks.

OP, defintely get a lawyer as others mentioned. Take an online defensive course after the verdict if you still get some points on a reduced charge. Well worth it. You don't know when you will the next one and fines build on previous fines.

Police Benevolent Association. I think you get it by making a donation and the hope is to "soften" the officer when he pulls you over for speeding.
