    Beat that.
    $5,000 for no insurance..??..

    Ticket for 25 over???? Thought you weren't speeding? And if you just pass a cop that's pulled over but isn't manning their radar equipment how in the hell did she expect to give you a ticket, much less one for 25 over???

    I'm confused!

    Default A little creativity CAN go a long way...

    True story, no kidding-

    First of all, this did not happen to me, it happened to a friend of my dad’s.

    Here is what happened:

    A gal he knows was pulled over by a KY State Trooper on the express way (I-75) just outside of Lexington. She thought she’d try to be nice by saying something that might help her in this situation.

    When the Trooper asked for her license and registration, she handed both to him and said “thank you officer- ya know I support everything you guys do and in fact I gave to the Troopers ball this year”.

    He looked back at her and said, mam, I am a state Trooper and we do not have balls (LOL- no kidding). He then realized what he said, handed her back herlicense and registration, did not say a word but walked straight back to his cruiser and drove away.

    No ticket.

    Is that crazy or what?

    You are soooooo lucky- not sure about how they do things where you live, but in KY, 25 and over is considered reckless driving and an *instant* trip to jail. I know someone this happened to several years ago.....

    Great to hear it worked out for ya !

    A couple months ago I got pulled over on the highway. He thought he was hiding but I saw his light bar over the bush and my radar detector picked him anyway. I have a routine when I see a cop. Slow down, radio down, windows down. (I had tinted windows). This is exactly what I did when I saw him. There was nothing for him to pull me over for. I pass him, I see him put the car in gear and pull out. At this point I yell, "WHAT THE F**K!". He does the standard thing, he hangs back then Flies up behind me and flips his lights on as if he didn't want me to see him. What a dumba$$. Anyway he walks up and gets my license and all that crap. Then he proceded to tell me that he pulled me over because I wasn't wearing my seat belt. Now, please keep in mind I ALWAYS wear my seatbelt. I could not control myself and I just started screaming and cussing at this state trooper. (I can't believe he didn't arrest me). As you with silverados know, the seat belts go into the seat and if you're tall, someone cant see it sitting down in a car. I told him to stand back and look, he then told me how sorry he was and handed my license back to me. I drove off and I think I may have thrown rocks, but I'm not sure.

    Sorry, I guess I wasn't clear enough in my post. First of all, it's a $5000 fine in Ontario for your first offence of driving with no insurance. Second fine is $10,000

    She informed me upon pulling me over that I had been driving 105 in an 80, and she got that reading from her radar when she came up behind me.

    My bad:(

    a few years I was driving my 96 Monte Carlo and I came around a corner at 65 in 40 zone and there was a cruiser in a little turn off, instant blue lights. I pulled right over. My heart was in my throat so I just babbled on about a deer coming across the street and the only way to avoid him was to hit the gas. The cop rolled his eyes at me and turned towards the woods and said where over there. I said yeah just at the corner. He shined his flash light across the street and you could see 2 sets of shinny little eyes in the woods. whether or not they were deer I will never know but they got me off from a ticket.

    Thanks mother nature!!!
