I suppose you could then sit in the lockup and exist on stale donuts until Monday when the judge would set your bail....

Afterwards you can then pay the tow and impound fees to get your vehicle back.

When you're from out of state, the money you pay is a bond which is equal to the fine for that particular citation. You can either come back and contest it or forfeit the bond money.

Disagree. Performed responsibly, and assuming some idiot doesn't go on the attack, it's a viable and efficient practice.

It's perfectly fine for the rest of the world, just not here.

Also, someone earlier in the thread stated that in MD it's only a 1 point offense. Can anyone provide any support for that?

Yeah, I could, and then I would sue the fucking backwater redneck fucks silly.

But hey, that assumes this is what would happen.

I'm not convinced.

What is your time worth? Would you rather pay a 150 dollar fine and be on your way, or spend two days in jail, and have it potentially cost you a lot more in legal fees? Me, if I'm bagged, I'm paying the fine and heading home.

Well, that's what the Ohio State Patrol does. Been there, done that. Be glad you never had to deal with the old Justice of the Peace courts. I've personally seen where they would take spare tires and other assorted possesions in lieu of a fine, usually in the middle of the night. Oh, and you can't really file a civil action against a court system.....

5 years of commuting year round north Scottsdale to Gilbert I never saw a single person lane splitting.

My time is worth a lot, my integrity much more!

"posting a bond" = "illegal justice" ?

Don't make shit up, it's splitting at 5 mph or 70 mph.

At 70mph it's not "sharing", it's "stupid".

I went to California last spring and found the same. If you were going faster than they were, they got out of your way. If you passed them (double yellow or not), they seemed to assume that you just wanted to go faster than them and didn't care. If it wasn't safe for you to pass and they thought you wanted to go faster THEY ACTUALLY PULLED OFF QUICKLY SO YOU COULD PASS THEM. There was no politeness involved, it seemed. It was just a purely a rational form of roadcraft. It was a pretty eye opening experience. To all those Californians, thanks. You have a great state with great drivers, and I'm going to visit again.
