speeding incident

Just over a year ago I passed through Turkey on a bike, picking up a momento on the way, in the form of a nice red speeding ticket. As I was staying with the local police I asked the local chief what was best to do about this, he said go and be happy.
I am about to return by plane and have dug the old ticket out and can see clearly my passport number on there, has anyone come across this situation before ? what was the outcome ? Am i going to spend the rest of my days in a turkish gaol ?

worse case scenario, you will have to pay it.

they arent going to put you in jail over it.

I'd bet it wont even be mentioned

but of course you can bring it up yourself as you enter, if your consience is bothering you

As you will be on a motorcycle, you will probably be offered the T.E.Lawrence option.

If you are worried, just get a new passport

And if all else fails, say you suspect the Mossad of having cloned your passport and that it must have been someone else riding the bike, they'll be sympathetic after the whole Dubai assassination and Gaza Flotilla attack...
