Damn man.

8 years of driving and I have 2 non-moving violations (in my case parking tickets). Never been pulled over for anything. Was a near miss once, but the cop pulled over the guy about 3 cars back. I was doing almost 90 in a 65 zone trying to pass a trucker who kept going between 60 and 80 depending on if her was going up a hill, down a hill or on flat, so I finally got feed up and started to leave him in my dust when I blasted past a PA state cop running radar in a hidden little turn off, fortunately about 3 or 4 cars behind me were all doing the same thing I was. Thats really the only true near miss I had on getting a ticket.

Alright, my ticket breakdown:

9 tickets before the age of 18. That right, 9 moving violation from age 17 to my 18th birthday.

I never paid a single ticket! They all went to collections and my credit was tortured.

Then about, 2 months after my 18th birthday, I got chased by a police helicopter when I was racing my friend on the street. I ran for about 15 minutes, then gave up when i saw the regular cops behind me.

I got a 3 page ticket, 11 violations, but the cops were cool and let me keep my car and drive it home that night :shock:

took it to court and had everything dropped besides wreckless driving.

Since then, i believe 4-5 moving violations and about 10 fix-it tickets. (ie: seatbelt, no front plate, exhaust, etc...)

In the past 3 years (which insurance cares about), i have had 2 moving violations. Neither were speediing. Both were illegal right turns!

Hmm, 24 yrs of driving so it's hard to remember. Least proud of a DUI when I was 21, lost license for a year and a $1000 fine, serves me right. At least 18 speeding tickets, actually just talked myself out of a speeding and no seatbelt ticket and then 5 days later got nailed for doing 120kph in a 50kph construction zone as I was racing to the ferry. Ticket should've been about $500-600 range as I was doing 70 over limit, ticket doubles in construction zones, yada yada, but he was nice and gave me the lowest he could, $139 plus $25 off if I pay within 30 days. Hee hee I said at that price could I have two so I could save $50, thankfully the cop was cool and actually laughed at my joke. Other than that I've been lucky since I tend to drive a tad too fast.
