I don't think your friend did you any favours by letting you go, besides he broke the rules what the police force stands for. If you should ever (haven forbid) have a serious accident your friend will never forgive himself to let you go when you did 90 in a 25 speed zone.

You are so right my friend had a fathal accident last year ---> CLICK to read all about it he tracked his M3 and organized track meets, he was an excellent driver, still overtaking on a wet road did him in his rear end gave away (according to witnesses) and a tree was in the way costing him his life. He was only 28 and full of life what a loss.

I think with your frame of mind perhaps you should get yourself a Prius what you think?
