A buddy of mine consistently drives over the speed limit. I recall often hearing him say: “I’ll take my chances. If I get caught I’ll just pay the ticket and move on. Besides, I have a radar detector!”
Well, unbeknownst to him, the state police recently received new laser speed guns that are not picked up by most radar detectors. One day, they clocked him going 75 mph in a 55 mph speed zone. Needless to say, the state trooper who stopped my friend issued him a ticket. I’m sure the fact the radar detector was in plain sight put the trooper in a less than forgiving mood. Because he was traveling 20 mph over the speed limit, my friend incurred fines and court costs totaling $350.00, plus four points against his license. I’m sure his insurance costs went up, too.
My friend does not work for an EASA service center. That’s the good news. But his experience brings to mind the many costs that could affect a service center if he did work for one.
