It's gotta be atleast 5-7. Oh I forgot about the ones when I lived up north. Ok, add a couple to that. Not in a few years though and don't plan on getting anymore as I can't afford it. I started off bad. First day driving legally (16), I got a ticket. Second day driving, I bought a radar detector (aka fuzz buster). 8)
Just one, but it was pretty cheap-***. There's this ring road around my university where the speed limit is 40 km/h, and apparently I was going 57. I got a $40 ticket for that. Everyone goes at least 60 km/h on that road though.......
I have been driving for 20 years and never received a speeding ticket. It isn't I followed the speed limit, I just am lucky I guess. Heck I used to speed down the freeway in Des Moines at 75 in a 65 all of the time. I never have got caught. The only tickets I received was a parking ticket in my freshman year in college. I didn't know about it. The ticket must of blown away. I found out during spring registration. I waited in line for 3 freakin hours to register. When I got up to the computer the lady had an attitude and told me I couldn't register till I paid it. Which met losing my place in line to do this. Luckily, someone I had some classes with kept my place. She was such a sweetheart. I should of proposed marriage to her right their in line.
I've never gotten a ticket. I usually drive at the speed limit on residential streets, about 2 or 3 miles over the limit in 35 mph zones, 4-5 mph over in 45 mph areas, 5-7 mph over in 55 mph areas and 8-10 mph over in 65 mph areas...depending on traffic flow, time of day, and number of cops on the road.
When I was about 9 years old, a cop pulled my mom over right in front of our house (on our way home). She was going 30 mph in a 25. He looked at the address on the driver's license, looked at the house, and then looked back at the driver's license. I thought he was going to let her off with a warning, but he wrote a ticket. The worst part is that he was the DARE officer at our school, so I had to see him every week for the DARE classes.
I have a lead foot and I've never got a ticket, been driving 3 years. Cops here that sit at the side of the road have to be in plain sight according to the law. They can't hide behind a bush or anything so you gotta be pretty stupid to get caught by them.
I said four or five. That is what I get for commuting so much. I guess it was my beautiful 1999 compact car that just stands out so much doing 76 in a 65. I had to say four or five, but I really don't know officially. I know that I haven't had one in over three years *knock on wood*.
Two.........One, I was going 75 in a 55 zone.............just got back from a hand gun course, I had casing all through my car (don't ask) a bumper sticker that spoke of Nicole Simpson.......I didn't have my regitration, proof of insurance................He let me "off" with 10 over, could have had me for reckless driving and a few other infractions..........
