    Hey guys can a driver dataQ a violation? I got popped for speeding. 70 in 55mph. Going down 58k pound overweight container. Iowa DOT. Gave me a warning then he gives me a ticket after I asked him too. So I have a court date now. If I can get it lowered or dismissed can I dataQ level 3 speeding violation? Or was asking for a ticket a foolish thing?

    15 over the speed limit is 'reckless driving', so expect to be fired or if you're an owner-operator your insurance will go up.

    never volunteer for anything.

    the cop was more than willing to oblige you.

    what's that old bible saying..??

    "ask and ye shall receive"..???
