Uh- so going 109 is only a 6-month license suspension? I'm not saying he does or does not deserve it- just curious that's all. In CA 109 would put you in jail, car impounded, license suspension (revoke?), and points on your insurance.

Not sure why he was going so fast for.

Oops, sorry. Wrong fourm!

It's really not that great of a road to be going that fast on... It will be interesting to see how it shakes out.

He didn't go to jail because it was in Minnesota and he's Adrian Peterson. Simple as that. If he was going 109 in a different state the night before an away game, then he'd be in jail.
Do you really think cops don't like the NFL? They have personal interests just like the rest of us. haha

Besides, 109 really isn't that fast. I catch myself going 100+ a couple times a week. lol

Should see what the road is like before judging.

95 south in VA headed to richmond COMMONLY has typical traffic flow reaching at 90 mph, with the faster cars going by me at a good pace.

You could pull over basically any car (other than the 1 in 30 that drives slow and makes everyone go around them), and take people to court, and say "Hey why are you going 90/110 in a 55/65"

No matter what you say you can't make that look good, but you and the cop are both well aware of what was going on with traffic.

I wouldn't brag about that if I were you. But yeah I know what you meant. Celebrities usually get a few breaks.

Who says I'm "bragging"?

I simply don't choose to believe in the misconception that speed = danger. You've chosen to condemn my actions as irresponsible, and even perhaps reprehensible, based purely upon my related speed and without taking into consideration other variables; such as my road conditions, weather, traffic patterns, congestion, experience, etc...

While I'm fully aware that much more effort must be put forth in order to obtain a driver's license in Germany when being compared to the US, I'm also aware that there are fewer highway fatalities on the Autoban, per capita, than on American highways. This stands in stark contrast to the falsity "speed kills"

BTW i live in a rather secluded area with long straights and little traffic. I never travel at such speed when other drivers are within distance to possibly present an unwanted variable.

Plus, the speedometer on the Beemers are always optimistic so he was probably only doing 105/106. And that's only because the VTEC kicked in yo!

Speedometers are never optimistic, they always read higher then you are actually going.

Adrian Peterson is actually a very down to earth guy. My friend used to be neighbors with Jared Allen and Adrian was over there quite often and got to meet him on several occasions.
