    All these stories about getting tickets or out of them sound so '60 to me. For at least 15 years where I live all cop cars are equipped with electronic means of gathering evidence. Cameras and speed radars, front and back. Even if they stop you, they just check your license registration and tech check validity then remind you to check your email. Formally you have rights to appeal the ticket but it is way pointless to argue with video footage. No talking whatsoever. I live in eastern europes shithole by the way.

Even is this guy was the greatest story teller with the greatest stories that the world has ever known I'd still be pissed off at being suckered into watching the video. SUPER CLICK BAITY TITLE. You are terrible people for lying like that and it makes me regret watching your videos in the past and will ensure that I don't watch them in the future.

    I would have reacted the same way with that Dealership as he did. The fact that they lied to him and tried to quickly fix it, is a reflection on the lack of maturity of the management of that dealer. Those people should know better. Its always better to just give someone the bad news straight up than to try and weasel out of it.
