Hey all! did any of you have any "entanglements" with the law during
the weekend of Ani-Magic? I got a speeding ticket in the middle of the damn desert for going 78 MPH in a 55 MPH zone wich was none other than a DOUBLE FINE ZONE! >_< there goes my savings account!!

Any other tickets? pull overs? etc.? SHARE! ^_^

I nearly overheated my car and drove 300 plus miles with nothing to listen to except for my friend playing his Ukelele. I actually didn't mind it that much plus I tought him how to play H.T. on it which was alot of fun.

This is a close one.

I was stopped by a cop on the way to my apartment.

Why?

I had too much to carry (garment bag, suitcase, and other stuff) so he helped me carry all my baggage up the stairs.

Funny, I was dressed up as Fujiko...

There was the cop that was ahead of us on the way to AM. It kept changing lanes and seemed to want me to accelerate past him so he'd be able to ticket us. We were already doing 80 in a 70 zone at night.

What was up with the cops parked out in front of the hotel at Friday night? I believed it was because they found out that people were carrying weapons or because of all the matrix and BR cosplayers sportin' their gats and stuff.

The reason the cops were out in the parking lot on Friday because a couple of morons walk into the hotel and wanted to know why everyone was wearing costumes, when they refuse to leave after they were told to. Or that what I was told by the front desk

My boyfriend going almost 100 MPH on the strip where the hotel is.

I guess the cop was sleeping or something cuz he zoomed right passed him and the car did not move.

We drove there about 100MPH and we had a friend that did the same. The friend however got pulled over, but didn't receive anything other than being told not to speed and that her car was not street legal. No ticket or anything though.

must have been a guy cop ....sorry that was bad..

Well you shouldn't have to go to court for around a month or so, try to check around with people in law and see if you can do anything besides traffic school to reduce your fine. I'll ask my friend who is a cop, hopefully with all the new legislation there is something. You should be able to transfer your case to a closer courthouse if you act fast enough as well.

From what I understand, he's trying. But it looks like traffic school wont reduce the fine, it will just wipe the ticket off the record and keep his insurance down.

Yup! it's gonna have to be Traffic School! but my boss said since it's LA county I might get lucky and not have to pay as much... we'll just wait and see... I am traumatized for life tho... I have heart attacks whenever I see a cop. That guy coulda let me off with a warning but nooooooooooooo... I guess since I was going 78 and everyone else 100+ I was easier to catch... :-/ We totally got the shit end of the stick, Kusan...

I just called the LA courthouse... seems I wont know until 21 days after the ticket was given... people cross your fingers for me and hope the cop doesn't turn in the ticket!!! >_< UNTIL THEN...


FEAR OCTOBER 24, 2003!!!
