Wow, that sucks to hear. What did you say to that cop when he pulled you over?!

I can't believe he nailed you for everything and actually took you to jail. Was there a big speeding charge along with the list or something?

I got nailed a few weeks back on vacation for 40 over. I was way up north on the way to my wife's family cottage. It was 1 AM and not another car on the road, I could not believe it when I drove by the radar trap. I alway play the submissive, I'm really sorry, card and the cop knocked it down to 10 over and had me on my way. Plus, my insurance card I had in the car was expired as I had forgotten to put in the new slip, he simply said he believed I had insurance and wouldn't ding me for it.

Probably partly my attitude that got me out of that and partly the fact that he saw the ridiculousness of the fact that I got caught at 1AM on a road 4 hours north of the last major city as you travel that direction.

I would fight it, there's got to be someway you can at least have the charges lessened.

Call the towing company and explain that you will be getting estimates to have the car repaired and that they will be paying, I drove a tow truck as a student job between semesters of school, we had to pay out for damages all the time. It really depended on the vehicle, some were just plain impossible to tow over bumpy terrain without a flat bed, but the company would insist we do it anyhow.

Adjuster coming back out tomorrow. Wish I could tear this thing apart and see what is really going on. If the adjuster gives me the green light update tomorrow! This is what I found when I got to my car... that filter was like 4 months old!!!! It has maybe 6k on it? Destroyed! Full pictures tomorrow when I get the front clip off.
