With all of the technology available now, it should be only a matter of time that our vehicles will be able to tell us when we are speeding. If this is not already available, I give permission to whomever reads this to implement the idea, and give me 50% of all profits. You can call the product the GPS (Go Pretty Slow).

Deferred Adjudication is basically probation. For 60 or 90 days (usually 90 but can be as high as 180 days or more) you cannot get a ticket for the same thing. If you do you are usually on the hook for both tickets.

It has been 10 years since I did probation and even longer since I did defensive driving to I cant speak to cost. I think the last time I did Deferred Adjudication it was like $80

My Garmin monitors my speed and posts it below the actual speed limit. It only very rarely displays incorrect information. I've come to rely on it.
