475 dollars for a speeding ticket ?!?!

So Rob and I are moving to Southern California to get away from the almost constant rain of Seattle, and we had to go take a look at a house that we liked.

So we're driving through the Mojave National Preserve and about 45 minuted from Barstow we get pulled over. The officer said that Rob was driving about 105 miles an hour (he was really only 90), so the cop gives him the ticket and walks back to his car.

Rob at this point is laughing almost hysterically at the ticket and hands it to me, I look at it and it's 475 dollars. It's a Speeding ticket, I mean it's not like he parked in front of fire hydrant or in a handicapped spot. So what are your guy's opinions about this, I think it's excessive.

    If i was Rob i'd show a little leg or unbutton my shirt a little when i saw the officer approaching. If that didn't work you two could of easily managed to beat him up, the hot weather and the vultures would take care of the rest. By the way before you move to California you have to decide if you're gonna be a Crip or a Blood

    I'm pretty sure that I would not be the best candidate for seducing a cop that sounds more like Rachel's area.

    don't speed, don't have to worry about it. speeding does not get you there that much faster but it does rape your fuel economy. use a cruise control when ever possible.

    I use cruise control when I don't have a rabbit which is like 70% of the time but what really kills fuel econ is dense traffic.

    i got a ticket for 101 dollars for not wearing my seatbelt on my way to pick up my cap and gown for graduation a few days ago. I thought that was ridiculous for me forgetting my seatbelt.
