Of course once I drove back up to WPB a month later for court, it took two seconds for the magistrate to understand and send me on my way.

He did let us off with warnings for 43 in a 30 (at like 2am) I didn't realize all of A1A was a 30 mph road, but we were by no means hell raising.
I appreciated that but would have had an easier time taking the ticket for what I was actually doing wrong rather than be stressed about a felony tag ticket for a month even though I knew he was wrong.

Has he really never traded a vehicle in before? How stupid do you have to be to not understand a tag transfer. Acted like I took the tag off another bike for a quick ride despite having the transfer paper.
i was being sarcastic. they're the gestapo. most of these small towns with high income taxes are though. they have so much money to spend they have cops sitting in bushes every 1/4 mile. I've never ridden through sea ranch lakes and NOT seen a cop for example.

on the other hand, its different when its your city. Lighthouse Point recently made a drug bust of several million dollars. Because we are so close to the inlet, we have a major drug bust every other year or so. I didn't realize that in those cases, the municipality gets to keep the money. they're buying all kinds of cool shit.


on a serious note, this is a photo of the drug smuggler that got away from the police. if you see him, please contact Lighthouse Point Police.

if you're ever in highlands again, go particularly slow in the southern end of the city. theres an empty lot there they like to hide.

Never, ever speed on A1A.

If the sign states a speed limit of 35MPH, it's safer to go 34MPH.

in short, yes. do not speed. in long, you can get away with a lot, but it varies by city. also, if you're observant enough, you'll notice that cops on a1a wait in the exact same spots, behind the exact same bushes day in an day out. they specifically like to hang out here in gulfstream, fl...just north of Delray, south of Boynton.

one place I absolutely will not speed: Jupiter Island.

I have thought about riding the beach-not seriously though. Also all the golf courses around here look very appealing

I've just been riding around Delray the past couple days and it's got quite boring, with all of the traffic and all I can't even really get on the gas.
Just thought there might be some trails or something off of 441?

We actually need more... Finally the ponds are filling back up a bit, but the groundwater levels are still low so all that surface water will be gone soon enough.

You're right Paula, even the 'lowest' life form has a function in nature. It is just that the pesky buzzing and disease spreading skeeter is annoying while fishing. And than there a no-see-ums... They are actually worse IMHO
