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)

None unless you count the two warning tickets I've recieved. The only tickets I've had to pay were once for not wearing my seat belt and once for tinted windows.

I got a parking ticket once. I always drive however fast I feel comfy driving and scan for cops on the side. I don't even know the speed limits in this town I just moved to.

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.

Those cops know not to mess with me. :twisted

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*.
