A co-worker came in yesterday and showed us how he managed to obtain an 8 hundred dollar ticket after being caught by a cop while he was riding his pocket bike.
This kid isnt exactly a model citizen though, and im sure the fact that he was inebriated gave the cop some fuel to dish out an extra large ticket. Apparently the officer was fairly impressed with his get-up including a toque with tassles and oversized goggles which persuaded him to leave out the "Driving under the influence" conviction. Fairly forgiving of the cop, considering my co-worker thought it funny at the time to run from the cop; get pulled over; pick up his bike and turn it around, and run away again; get pulled over again; turn around again; and get pulled over again, before finally giving up.
Just thought I'd give you guys with pocketbikes a heads up. The ticket was closer to $860 if i remember correctly, and had potential to be higher due to the alcohol involvement. The ticket included ~$600 for uninsured vehicle, ~$130 for no helmet, and anotherr ~$130 for riding on sidewalks, no lights etc.
