You have to learn the RIGHT way to get a speeding ticket.

About 2 or 3 years ago, I was pulled over for the first time in my "many" years of driving.

*Note. I drive a red Mustang, and I do not believe I was speeding. Cars were passing me like I was standing still. BUT I tend to have a lead foot, so I figured it was for all the times I did NOT get caught. I was cooperative.

The officer asked me for my driver's license and my vehicle registration. Very "sweetly" I gave him all of the informatioin he asked for. (I did notice, however, that there was a lady in a car already over to the side of the road that he was talking to when I pulled over. AND she remained there after I left, as he pulled more vehicles over for speeding.)

ANY way...we completed the paperwork, and he said he was going to go easy on me, and the fine would be lower than it could have been. (I was thankful because I was going to be going to Hawaii with my mom and sisters the following week and did want to diminish my spending money to severely.)

WELL....long to short. HE made the ticket out to my HUSBAND (via the vehicle registration) instead of me! My husband was not too happy about that, but he rode it out until it went to court, and all charges were thrown out because he had documented proof that he was no where near the scene of the crime!

We laugh about it now, but when the citation came in the mail, made out to my hubby...I told him, "Honey I knew you loved me and would do anything for me, but THIS is above and beyond!!!
