High speed dinger?

Hello everyone was wondering if anyone else has a dinger that goes off at higher speeds mine goes of at around 73. anyway i got pulled over along with another superduty that was tailing me. the officer said that i was going 77 and i know for a fact that that dinging was not going off, regardless yes i was speeding. but the dinging is the same as when your door is open and the keys are in the ignition. wondering if anybody know what it might be called cause my ticket is half way across the state from where i live and i am planning on writing the judge hope that because this is my first time they could be leinent lol. any way have a good one everybody.

You are going to get laughed at by the Judge.

Your better off to show up request a hearing. Use the arguement that the radar hit the other truck. Stand your ground that you were not speeding. But when you seen the lights of the police car you pulled over to yield right of way. Not knowing you were going to be pulled over at the same time as another truck that just passed you.

By the way my truck does not have that dinger.

man i hit open highway today and just had a steady foot in it, wasn't really paying any attention, looked down and my speedo was brushing up against 87 and 88, I wish I had the dinger for moments like that. I looked up and i was runnin up on a white explorer with a light bar and antennas and thought to myself "F***!", it was just a state park ranger luckily enough. Then again, if my truck dinged at me everytime I broke 73 mph i'd get annoyed, the speedlimit on 70 is 70, so needless to say 5-10 over applies

the high speed dinger might be on because the flux capacitor is acting up.

Sounds like the Dinger is sitting in the drivers seat.
