Hey Donz, I'll send it over.
The problem I have is I already PAID the ticket, there-by pleading guilty, so I don't think I can fight the ticket itself. I am mainly concerned with the fact they deliberately waited 'til the 30 day period to pay or fight was expired.

Rchevelle71. Your right about the placement of signs. Sometimes the signs are on land way out of your line of sight,faded too. How about a blinking light with the color of the info. Red (idle or stop) Yellow (slow) Green (resume safe speed). I even see the ones that tell you to slow down and or idle and then you never see another one telling you its ok to resume your speed.

check and see if you can take the test online, that is what I did in Texas, they even had 7 or 8 chapters of study material in color showing markers, flags, running at night who has right of way ect. then when you are ready take the test online, I think mine was 20bucks, I had to take it to join the TOPPS club for a poker run

Greg,
Why don't you carry your trophy from Marathon with you? Tell them you just won a big professional Offshore race and you don't need no stink'in boat driving classes. I saw you in action you don't classes, glasses maybe. SQ
