Sure enough, right as I turned the cop was about 75 feet away, so he made a U-turn and pulled me over. When he asked if I knew why he pulled me over I said "No, I'm sorry", so he told me I made the illegal turn on red. I apologetically told him I didn't see the sign and wouldn't have made the turn if I knew it was there.

    Eventually, he got my license/insurance/reg, went to his car.. then he asked if I was in college and whatever and just said 'watch the signs' and let me go.

    Long story short, don't admit to the wrong doing, be courteous/apologetic, and play stupid.
    A very very similar thing happened to me with the same result about a pair of months ago.

    You can bet this spoke to the arresting coppers in a special language all its own. And yeah the bulls did him over good and proper

    You should have just said the toxic waste fumes had gotten in your eyes burning them severely and you had to hurry home to rinse them out before you went blind.

He did say though that I was quite kind and thanked me for not swearing and "taking it like a man". I have lost 1 out of 3 points on my license and got a 80 euro ticket Only two points left for another 3 years of driving.
    There are no speed cameras in my area.

    Obviously, you can't always get away with it, but by not admitting to it you at least have a chance.

    I've been yanked by the po-po 4 times. Two tickets, let go the other two. It's really a crap shoot as to what's going to happen.

    I usually pull the keys out of the ignition and lay them on the dash, hands on the wheel, hat and shades off, always tell them I'm going to do something before I do it ("My insurance and registration are in the glovebox, can I get them?" My ass isn't getting shot over a few pieces of paper...). Showing some respect goes a long way.

    I'd say show them you are responsible, sensible and your fault was purely an error, you didn't intend to do the fault. Of course this won't help if you are way over the limit or shot by a camera.

    If you are really speeding, you would know that speed costs, and as such, be willing to face the consecuences of your acts.

    if the cop says to you he has been waiting all day to catch someone like you speeding, just tell him you got there as fast as you could...

    i have gotten out of more speeding tickets than i can count.

    my recommendations are to have your license and registration out before he gets to the car. call him sir, and be as respectful as possible. do not complain, argue, deny you did anything wrong. if he askes if you know why you were pulled over, then say i may have been going a bit fast, but i thought i was within the limit.

    also a big help, is to slide your military ID under your license. if they aren;t already just going to give you a warning, then that may put them over the edge, and even get a "thank you for your service sir" when they are letting you go. happens to me regularly.
    Honor. Courage. Commitment. Etcetera.
