    Getting out of a ticket

    Whats your best story of getting out of a traffic ticket? Or maybe you've never gotten out of one ! If you're female; many times crying or showing alittle extra cleavage does the trick. Hey, Im not sexist, but it worked for crunchie on more than 1 occasion Now how much crying or showing some skin would work if ur on a bike is anybodys guess

    Probably my best story is this one...

    I was heading home about 2am in the truck. I made a left turn on a curvy road that heads into my little town. At the same time there's a car coming towards me, but still a ways off. He ends up turning right on the road behind me.

    He got right up on my bumper, so I was thinking he wanted to race. Ok, so I take off.

    We end up doing 70mph in a 40mph zone before he turns on the lights. It was a car with the light in the dash instead of the top, so there was no way I could tell it was a cop car at night.

    I promptly pulled over, and when he walked up to the truck he asked if I knew why he pulled me over. (uh..yeah) Then he asked if I was kin to ..let's call him John Doe. I said yes, that he's my uncle.

    He told me to slow down..it'd be bad if I were to hit a deer going that fast.

    haven't gotten one on the bike yet. i really wouldn't mind paying a speeding ticket if i was actually really speeding, but the damn insurance increase is insane. (all alliteration aside)

    Unpaid, of course. And they will never get paid.
    Only way I will ever pay them is if I get pulled over in those states and they mention it.
    You may find yourself taking a nice trip to the local lock-up if you show back up in one of those states and get pulled over... Isn't the rally in NC? Might be worthwhile to pay that one at least Just tell them it flew out the window during your travels and you need to get it straightened out...

    I was just curious. Thanks for the read though.

    fyi...here in quebec they suspend your license if you don't pay. If you get caught driving on the suspended license, it is a $425 fine and they seize your car for 30 days. You car or anyone elses....meaning if you are driving a friends car and they stop you, your friend loses the car for 30 days.

    I don't know about unpaid... you might find an answer here:
    http://www.hsmv.state.fl.us/ddl/faqsuspend.html. I know ones from Leon county get sent out to a "collections agency" after a certain amount of time, which are handled by an outside law firm from that point on...

    Here in Florida, paid/dismissed/adjudicated ones fall off your active driving record here after 3 years, although they are kept in the records system for literally decades.

    i've avoided traffic fines in a few instances. most of those incidents were very embaressing, so i'll only mention the clean one.

    i ran a yellow light, cop pulls me over. i didn't even start to panic. he came to my window, and i told him i was following the car in front of me home, and i didn't know where they lived (so i had to stay right behind them). he didn't even scold me. he just gave me my stuff, and left.

    slytly, that was funny. but i've been pulled over a couple times on the bike. once, it was like 12:30, and i was zig zagging in my lane (i was the only person on the road) and the state trooper pulled me over saying i was all over the road. but he was just fishing for a DUI. the second time i was riding with my buddy joe and we were both bouncing out on the freeway (like 95ish) and a trooper lit us both up. we both pulled over and he told me to keep going. he got a ticket for 92 in a 65. good thing for him, he didn't get any fines for now having his endorsement. i guess cops know that blue isn't as fast as yellow

    I have never been pulled over on a bike. Knock on wood. I have however, gotten several tickets in the cage. Traveling for work like I do it is almost inevitable that you will get a few. As of a couple weeks ago, I had a perfect record, 37 states and at least one ticket in all of them LOL, since my trip to SurfinCR's house in Connecticut, I now have 37 out of 39 and I am in no hurry to reinstate my perfect record
