BLARGH...i got a speeding ticket!

Posted 04-08-2009 at 07:35 PM by Discoteque



$170.

Did the cop go after the woman in front of me WHO WAS SPEEDING? No, of course not. He picked me.

And for some reason, I know not why, I become little Miss Surly in these situations...and to my own detriment, I probably gave a little more "lip" than was necessary. I wish I could be one of those women who can cry, or show cleavage or whatever, but I'm not. Instead, I get bitchy.

So it was first thing this morning. While on my way to a Dr. appt., which I was late for, and caused my BP to be elevated (thanks officer!).

And WHY do they go back to their cars and take so long to give out citations? I mean, I'm the most normal, boring, non-criminal person I know....what the heck is he doing in there? I think they do it just to annoy us.

And the ticket, I swear, is 2 feet long.

So anyone have any tips for me on how to lessen the pain in my pocketbook on this??

Glad I could help you make your quota this month, officer.

    I always appreciated a real short skirt and a lot of cleavage while I stood next to the driver door writing a ticket...and, I only took 95 seconds...had to get the rest of those speeders!

    But, I would've called the doctor to let him/her know you were running late....

    isn't there a defensive driving thing you can take to get out of paying the ticket?

    not out of PAYING the ticket, just to keep it off your record. Apparently comedy defensive driving is the way to go, though I've even heard of cooking courses too. Learn while you burn!

    I have been debating pointing out the obvious, and, well, decided "why not."

    The other option is to do the speed limit.

    I picked up a $170-range speeding ticket two weeks ago. I was going 49 in a 35 and was late for work. Instead of blaming the officer (who was a pretty nice guy and explained they were out doing traffic enforcement after people in the neighborhood urged them too...as well as a few accidents).

    I know I speed. And, I know eventually it will bite me in the ass to the tune of around $170. But Iam not going to get pissed off at an officer because he should have pulled someoene else over instead of me. You do the crime, you pay the fine.
