Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I live in Gresham, OR and I was just pulled over for speeding at about 7pm tonight. I pulled around two slower cars traveling down a four lane highway and did 55-60 in a 40 zone. Saw the cop sitting at the top of the hill and pulled into the far lane, parking in a supermarket parking lot.
I gave him my Drivers License and insurance (its my girlfriends car) and dug around until I found my registration.
I answered honestly that I was speeding 15 to 20 miles over the limit and remained polite, and he told me how dangerous it was etc., and noted that my license was about to expire and that it was my responsibility to take care of it. The weird thing is my license says "expires 12.10.09". Anyway, the officer went back to his patrol car for a few minutes. When he came back he gave me my shit back and went over how much it WOULD be for the kind of violation I just committed. I apologized and he let me on my way.
Then it hit me. Did I get a ticket? He certainly didn't give me anything, nor did he write anything on any pad. When he talked about fines, he certainly didn't say under certain terms if I would be paying any. So how can I tell? I'm worried that I've just cost myself 400 dollars 13 days before Christmas over something dumb.
Amusingly when I picked my girlfriend up and headed in the opposite direction, the cop was at the top of the hill, this time with a few teenagers with their hands on top of their vehicle.
Long story short I need to know if i have any fines to pay or not.
