Wow, 10 over!? Insanity.

My worst is a 146 in a 100....didnt even fight it.

The best ticket I got said 65 km/hr in a 75 km/hr zone.....that was a cool cop, did it on purpose cause I showed him a little tit and flirted alot. Got it thrown out.

I stumbled on a trick you can try.... keep some expired insurance slips in your car.

Scene 1 - new company car... crappy Journey. Floor it right out of the office driveway and into a speedtrap. I told the officer I wasn't used to the car..it only had 30 km on the clock.... didn't buy that. Then I found out that there was no insurance slip in the car. Cop asked me if I wanted a the speeding ticket or no insurance, which also is no points.....

Scene 2 - Had the M5 for one month. Got off the 407 ramp at 9th line at about 1 am. Let it rip after turning right - blow past a minivan, redline 2nd gear - oooops - here's a black police car hiding in the darkness.... uhhhh - redline in second gear is about 100 kph! Cop says I was going 105... just shy of stunt driving, tow car, lose license etc... Oh, and your insurance is expired... Huh - That slip just arrived in the mail. But he was right, I had new slips at home... Same deal. He gave me the insurance ticket instead and complimented my car.

I got some dumb tickets in Winnipeg. I was there for business and rented a 5.0L Mustang. I drove it like a madman. A few months later, I get a letter from Hertz. Not one, but two photoradar tickets!!! Oh boy... well, I deserved them but the strange thing was that they were for 6 am at the same intersection, two days in a row. I was going to work with a coffee in my hand. Tickets were only 8 and 12 over, but both were $300.00. I went to the courthouse next visit to Winnipeg and the clerk figured that I wouldn't have done it a second time if I was aware. They dropped one.

On this trip, I avoided the 5.0 Mustang and got a Maxima. I was more aware of the photo radar, but still got a ticket! Next trip, I was really paranoid about photoradar. Within 5 km of the airport, I noticed a f'in camera flash - wtf!!!! Speed limit on hwy 90 changes 4 times in 1 km! 60-70-80-50... I never received that ticket though....

My youth was full of tickets, now I pay little since I've learned my lesson.

143 in a 80 zone (hwy 115) heading to Lindsay. Lucky for me, the Ontario stunt driving law just so happened to come into effect. I was lucky to get a nice cop, he dropped it to 49km over and said if I want to fight it, he will make sure he arrives and will try to reverse the charges to the original clocked speed.

Friends doing donuts in Timmies parking lot, I decide to leave without them because I want to avoid cops, what happens! cop pulls me over because he thinks I was doing it, I also stopped beside my friend at the time and said to him to meet at home, he made off, cop thinks were drag racing even though I waiting a few minutes before leaving, here's the list of tickets I got for that night.
-No insurance slip (I was actually driving without insurance but Durham cop was kind enough to let me leave). Avoided a 5grand ticket and taking my car/license along with it.
-36km over the limit
-expired temp tag
-excessive noise
That night cost over 500+$ in tickets.

I've also been caught without a seat belt in Brampton in a 5-ton truck just turning onto the street going into the next driveway to make another pick-up.

Somehow for all those tickets being without a few years of each other, the most I ever paid was 340$/mth for insurance.

I've learned a lot from those dummy days. I rarely speed, and wear my seat belt before I even turn on the car now, no longer hang out with ricers, only mature people for the most part.

cant remember the name of the ticket but its for changing lanes while in a intersection.
he should have dropped it because car infront was going way too slow.
