Many years ago, I received a Federal speeding ticket in Yellowstone N.P., max speed 65 in a 45 zone. I had gotten the park rangers attention at 30 in a 25 zone at the intersection to Old Faithful. He followed me for about 15 miles to the next intersection.
We both agreed that it was a nice night for a 'spirited run' thru the park, but animals on the roadway could be dangerous.
I slipped it into the map pocket of the tank bag. The park ranger did tell me that if I did not pay the bond by the court date assigned or be present in the court in Denver, CO that a Federal Warrant for my arrest would be issued by the judge.
I forgot about the ticket under the maps for about a month. 4 days til court date. I sent a money order on Saturday and prayed that it would be in Denver by Tuesday and not 'lost in the mail'.
Wooooo, that was close.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
