I played the whole "girl driving a stick" card and the officer was nice enough to go to court with me and testify on my behalf. That ticket was dismissed. I haven't had a ticket at all since I was 18.
I've been hit twice: once by a little whiny emo brat in a purple Saturn rear-ended my while I was waiting to make a left turn, the other when a guy ran a stop sign & T-boned me. The only other time I've been in trouble is when I got busted for doing 89 in 65. Actually, I was doing more like 95-100, but the officer felt bad for me. It was 2am, & was on the way home from my girlfriend's place & I had work at 8:30. I told him I was tired & just try to go home, so he gave me a break on the speed. Had he put it over 90, it would have been reckelss endangerment, a felony charge.
