because today I got my first traffic violation.
Sad, but true.
On the long stretch between Waimea and Waikoloa a hiding cop brought my attention to my speedometer which unfortunately read 71 mph- the last Speed Limit sign read 55- yowzers!
That's what happens when there are no cars in sight, you just kind of cruise and don't pay attention. I usually drive pretty much like an old lady so I was shocked I could have gotten so fast without noticing it.
Didn't even try to flirt my way out of it or anything (now I'm wondering if that really works and kicking myself that I didn't at least bat an eyelid or two, being it was my first offense and all- he might have taken pity on me- oh well).
Expensive trip to Hilo, that's for sure.
I hope it was worth it.
