He should have reasoned that he was exceeding the speed of sound and light.

When was he able to go 150mph on that stretch of road? Isn't it always clogged with traffic?



What would the sentence be for that guilty verdict?

. "he told the jury that later found him guilty, his helmet and clothing were so restrictive that he had no idea CHP officers with flashing lights and sirens were behind him."



Yeah sure buddy. Idiot.
[*] First mistake: speeding on 101 at 100 mph.
[*]Second mistake: running from the law
[*]Third mistake: Not pleading guilty and persuing a plea bargin
[*]Fouth mistake: Using this bone head excuse at trial



This guy is an idiot and deserves the felony conviction.

Happened early on Thanksgiving morning. Road is only clogged around rush hours. Don't know about the sentence, though.

As far as I'm concerned, no harm, no foul. Let him go. Many of us have done the same thing. If we thought it was truly a moral wrong deserving of punishment, most of us wouldn't.

So we just ticket folks that cause an accident? Hmmm. This guy could of caused an accident. Just cause he is on bike doesn't mean he couldn't hurt someone (bystander etc.) or cause another accident.
