yeah, people get mad at the fine, but the fine would be the least of my worries .. the damn insurance companies are the ones to worry about .....

I've only gotten pulled over twice and my dad knew the cop once and the 2nd time my dad was driving by. i told the cop getting the ticket was not the bad part my dad just saw it and I knew it was disappointing to him. My dad is very much into keeping our last name a "good" name in town. I didn't get a ticket either time. The 1st cop I saw at a family funeral a few months later. we live in a small town!

Whenever you get a speeding ticket (in Florida at least) insurance are split into 2 catagories for insurance companies. under 15 and 15 or over. if you get a speeding ticket it is definately a must to do the driving course to not get the points. especially over 15. it stays on your license for at least 3 years and they charge for the whole 3 years.

Every time I get a ticket ( I seem to get one every 18 to 24 months since the early 90's ) I say to myself " next time I'm going to try and talk myself out of it" but I end up being just SO pissed I have to keep my mouth shut or I just know I'll yell " you!" at him. I think there's an additional charge for that

As a female, getting out of a ticket should be pretty easy. I know if I was a cop, all you'd have to do is take my special breathalyzer.

I hate to laugh at the first and fourth one, but those are some funny headlines, Flo!
