4 tickets?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Now how many people do you know who have gotten out of 4 tickets in one year? If you know none, add me to the list. However, if you know some, then add me to the group.

Ok...so the 1st ticket as you all know was that speeding ticket I got in April. Well I finally got a court date for it and it was November 24, got out of it! :) Brought the pictures of the dirty sign and he said, "Ok, you get a break" I see...I get a break...he couldn't find the sign either!

2nd ticket...was the parking ticket that I got, $75...hmph...got out of that one quickly...

3rd ticket...was the ticket I got in Seattle. I was going 72 in a 60mph zone. *roll eyes* Douchebag cop...anyhow, wrote a mitigation they put me on a deferment, as long as I do not get a ticket for 6 months.

4th ticket...I got pulled over last Saturday for going 34mph in a 15...it was the freaking fast lane. :( Oh well...he let me off with a warning... :/ I have to slow down...

Ahh well...back to work...

At your suggestion, I will add you to my "fast woman" group, or perhaps that is not quite what you had in mind?

So how fast were you going in April?

I was going 55 in a 35, but it was a on a highway, so I didn't think it was a big deal.

Someday, you're going to run into more than one person who thinks different.

Clarification
Ok, time for the cop in me to come out for this one, but it's a bit of good news for you.

First, parking tickets don't count like moving violations do. Parking tickets just mean that if you don't take care of them, you can't renew your registration or driver's license.

Second, the warning doesn't count as a ticket either. If it was a verbal warning, it counts as nothing. If it was a written warning, as in a citation with the warning box checked off, it doesn't count as a ticket either. You only have to worry about written warnings if you get 3 of them in a year. Then, when you have 3, they count the same as a citation with your insurance and stuff.

Just clarifing the sillyness.

And by the way, 34 in the fast lane is nothing. I know a guy that went through at 70 in a police car.

Really? I thought my car was moving, when I parked it. I never said the tickets I got were moving violations, I just said tickets, I prefer you ask before you make an assumption that I don't know the difference.

Second, I know a warning does not count as a ticket, however, I could just as easily have gotten a ticket versus the written warning that I did receive.

As for it being silly, don't read my journal if you find my entries silly.

And I am not bragging about my speed, it's great that a cop went through @ 70, I've gone through a fast lane a lot faster than 34, I am lucky I was not clocked at higher.

Re: More clarification
='c( I was just trying to help and explain since I know you haven't lived here that long and I know they do things differently in other parts of the country, and this happened to be a subject I knew something about. I'm sorry. I won't bother you any more if I make you mad at me.
