How many speeding tickets have you gotten? Past, present, or future estimates welcome
Ever hear the term "arrest me red"?
Bright colors attract attention. And that's the last thing you want or need. The less you're noticed, the fewer citations you'll receive. Same goes for speeding and abrupt lane changes. There's a time and place for everything, and the sooner you learn when and where, the better off you'll be.
You might consider getting instruction from one of the racing schools and then doing some track days. It's a lot less expensive than paying insane rates for insurance and the court fines for the citations. It's also more fun.
