i give up.

Filed under: Are You Kidding Me?,Makes Me Grumpy,Stupid People — Amy @ 8:30 pm

since the last incident with the CIWIL police department, i have been a model driver. i never exceed the speed limit, stop at yellow lights and obey all traffic laws, even when nobody is around. i have done my best to avoid any possible encounter which would put me in that situation again.

apparently my best wasn’t good enough.

i was pulled over today and issued a ticket for failure to yield to a cross walk.

even though the people walking through the cross walk were clearly on the other side of the road.

at least this time i will know better than to waste my time and money trying to fight the joke that is our court system.

    Are you kidding? Must be some quota to fill this month.

    I hope I NEVER GET A TICKET! SIGH! I’m a new driver and being on the road is stressful enough!

    I always fear that one and get honked at because of it.

    Tickets suck. I have 6 mos until I can get another.

    In Calif. they have to be completely out of the street before you can go..in case they change their mind & go back.
    Tickets suck. But what sucks most is when it makes your insurance go up. You’d think the cop could’ve given you a warning. I agree w/Zephra about the quota.

    OR you could move to the country where we don’t have crosswalks and all you have to do to get out of a ticket is smile pretty at the officer and have either child or a CPR pocketmask handy. Both do wonders.

    Gotta learn how to fake it!!!
