PostSubject: Driving Tickets!   Wed Apr 30, 2008 1:28 pm



Okay, fess up... what tickets have you received from the cops? grinsmiley lol


I have received

a warning for speeding in a shool zone (in my defense, I felt I was driving as fast as the other cars... but I was able to only get a warning :P

a ticket for not having my lights on at night (in my defense, I was at the park and just drove two blocks! in a lighted part of the city) lol

a ticket for missing a stop sign (in my defense, it was in a neighborhood where there was nobody and I was also sick w/ the flu that day)

:shy:

A seatbelt ticket.
A speeding ticket.
A ticket for tinted windows.

Now you are probably going to jinx me and get me a ticket when I go out to pick up the kids. :haha:

Believe it or not (knock wood), not a single one. Ever. When I'm behind the wheel, I'm all business.

No, but you know what's funny? They were moving it because of road widening. And when I hit it with the belly box on my trailer, it put it almost EXACTLY where they were moving it.

For this favor to the great state of Illinois, I got charged $300.

Ain't life great? Cool

Um, I hate to admit it, but I do have a lead-foot! :shy: But the last ticket I got was really unfair. I was going 30 in a 25!!! :scratch: I mean....please. Do you know how hard it is to actually drive 25 mph?!?! :sad5:

That stinks. Seems like they should've paid you.

I got one speeding ticket three years ago. That's the extent of my driving offenses.

I think my situation was very similar when I got stopped for "speeding" in a school zone! the thing is... there were no kids around at that moment...

I've only gotten a warning for going 37 in a 30. I used to be a lead foot, but it's hard not to be when you drive a Grand National. We were taking it to Boston one day for a Bruins game and I was well over 80, came around a curve and saw a black and white. Luckily, I slowed down and stayed level with a big rig, so the radar didn't pick me up...either that or he was too into his donut to notice me flying by. :pilot:

I like the way you talk.

I once had a hotrodder try to duck in my blindspots when I drove rig. I hit the trailer brakes and made a little dog leg, and the trooper caught him trying to get around the swing.

He tried to haul ass, but you can't outrun a radio. The driver in front of me did the same thing, and drove him into the median, where 6 Texas troopers got him.

Man it was cool.Image hosted by servimg.com

Was that a BUICK Grand National?

What year?

I just consider myself lucky. ROTFL No tickets...knock on wood!

Edit: But, a warning once for my registration being expired when I was...18 or 19 I think. I had no idea, and used the excuse "my dad takes care of this stuff!" Luckily though, all I got was a card for the mechanic to fill out and for me to mail back.

I haven't gotten too many, but here are a few I can recall from the last decade...

1) Driving without a license
2) Driving with an expired license
3) Failure to yield
4) Failure to stop
5) Driving over the line
6) Driving through the grass
7) Not wearing a seatbelt
8) Speeding
9) Speeding, again
10) Speeding a third time
11) Another speeding ticket (but I contest this one was unfair)
12) A final speeding ticket
13) Driving past curfew (when I was younger)
14) Driving in the wrong lane
15) Driving in the wrong direction
16) Busted tail light
17) Failure to use headlights at night
18) Too many passengers in a car
19) Parking in a private lot
20) Honking at pedestrians at night
21) Driving on the sidewalk

And I think there may have been a few others. But like I said, not many. I'm a fairly good driver... I think. :unsure:

Um, Jon, looking at your location... most students at the Harriet Oleson Institute for the Advancement of Blind Children find someone else to drive them to and from school. :unsure:

None so far, touch wood, but I thinks it's only by sheer luck as I'm a bit heavy on the accelorator at times!

Well, when you think about it... at one time, there were no roads to drive on. I like to think of myself as a traditionalist. grinsmiley

It's a '86. It is now in the garage--hence the need for a three-car garage when we built the house. It needs to be painted and detailed, but it's still a darn fun ride. Hubby keeps saying he's going to sell it, but I remind him that the girls won't be little forever and then we old foggies can take that baby on the highway and have some fun. I'm afraid if he sells "Baby" now that he'll regret in it ten years.
