Lol. Couldn't you at least use a highway in the middle of nowhere to make it at least slightly more believable.

how did she feel entitled? she admitted to speeding, and getting caught, and that she will pay the fine, because she still believes in law and order. so where is the entitlement?

how do you figure i am trying to keep this quiet? you are spewing total garbage on this, a minor infraction of one of the laws in this country. sorry but speeding, even criminal speeding, is not a major felony in any state in the union, except perhaps ohio, and even then not really.

the only reason her speeding made the news was because she is who she is, a fox news host, and thus a celebrity of sorts. if she was some nobody doing this, it would never have gotten into the news and you know it. and the ONLY reason you are making a big deal out of this is because you are a hater of anything conservative, and want all conservatives to die a horrible death.

so admit it, you want to smear every conservative you can, and will use anything you can to do it with, even if it is something stupid like speeding.

are you going to try and smear me because i have done some speeding in my lifetime? i hit 125 a couple of times over the years, and have been over 100mph a number of times over the years. so what?

It's possible-95 flat, visibility for miles. It's not hard to spot black and tan FHP in the medians and under bridges...

I can get to west Palm in half an hour and it's not because of 70-75mph....

You get passed on 95 for going 80 like you're standing still...

https://nypost.com/2017/11/20/fox-ne...iving-119-mph/

Ex-Westchester County District Attorney and Fox News personality Jeanine Pirro was busted for driving 119 mph in upstate New York, cops said Monday. The outspoken ex-prosecutor was stopped along Route 17 in the town of Nichols at 1:15 p.m. Sunday, the state police said. The speed limit where Pirro was stopped is 65 mph.


Pirro’s mom, Esther Pirro, told The Post that her daughter, who hosts TV’s “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” was on her way to visit when she got pulled over. The elder Pirro lives in Elmira, just west of Nichols, and is battling cancer. “I am so sorry I made her speed like that. She’s too much concerned about me,” Esther Pirro said. She’s very much concerned about my illness.”

That's a reckless driving citation. Fine for that here is 800 bucks. I figure she can afford the fine. It's points on your license to. I don't know what NY does but it's probably stiffer than NV. Our roads here are made for high speed. Speed limit on I80 is 80 mph. That's plenty fast enough for me but I get passed all the time and left like I'm letting grass grow.

It was Rt17 for decades before being slowly changed over to I86. Some places it's still only marked as 17 without an 86 sign in sight.

Personally, I'll never get used to it being 86......it will always be 17 in my mind.

And calling traffic in Binghamton "real traffic" is a bit of a stretch.

Not surprised that she has no regard at all for others. She not only endangered herself but did so to all the nearby drivers on the road. I can give some leeway for speeding a bit over the limit. I however have zero tolerance for someone that drives 119 on public roadways. LOCK HER UP!

Posting a thread on C-D isn't smearing. And lol at you...why would I start a thread about you on C-D? This board isn't about you. Give it a rest.

I've been ticketed for going 83 in a 65 on an upstate NY road. I've also been let off for going 80 in a 40 way, way, way upstate. Depends on a lot of things. Never been caught over 100, probably because that's not a sustained speed for me. Temporary. Usually to get away from some cluster of f'ed up drivers.
NJST were becoming pretty lax for a while. All kidding aside I have had cars blow by me like I was standing still at 80mph. At certain times of the day, they would give you close to 100. I noticed early this year they started cracking down. When I drive in NY state I take it easy. Especially upstate.
