A year with my license and now my first ticket(s)

Well, yesterday i got stopped for going 80+ in a 65 and just barely avoided a ticket. Then later that day i got a parking ticket for parking in a spot that i didn't know was illegal.

He said he did not get a speeding ticket, almost did but skated buy that one. But a parking ticket is not a moving violation and should not go on your insurance.

I think Jim's aware.... in the NJ/PA/NY area you get run off the road if you're not doing 78-80 in a 65

Re: A year with my license and now my first ticket(s)

hell, last night i had to go well over a 100 to avoid getting ran off the road by a chevy pickup. it was an 80's dually and i was on the freeway and he came up behind me while i was going 75(the legal limit in utah), sped up until he was right on me, swung to the side of me, flipped me the finger and yelled at me, then swung in front of me and slammed his brakes. Luckily i hit mine too and swerved to the side of him and fscking shot out of there and put some miles between us.

Re: A year with my license and now my first ticket(s)

ditto on the florida deal. Its stupid that the posted speed limit is only 50 like it is on a lot of I-4 which for those who dont know is a major road going through central florida. and do you think anyone does 50? aint happening...but anyways tickets suck. just got my first speeding ticket a couple weeks ago. expensive little boogers...

Yeah, that was a little uncalled for (was having a bad day), sorry dude... Put it like this... NEXT TIME you do 80 in a 65 (not that I'm telling you to or anything)... keep you damned eyes open, almost every ticket is avoidable if you pay attention.

I've never gotten one that I couldn't have avoided had I been paying more attention to the road ahead.
