A traffic ticket can be expensive. How many tickets would you say you've gotten since getting...
I'm pretty careful. I've been driving for 50 years and have had less than a dozen tickets... usually for parking and the reason was always poor signage. Had a couple of speeding tickets. I was a bit over the limit... not much.
And went to court over an illegal turn ticket and won and was complimented by the judge who said I should have been a lawyer.
I've had my license 3 years and haven't gotten a ticket. In Australia the punishments for provisional drivers are really strict. If I were to be caught going 10km/h over the speed limit, my license would be suspended for 3 months and my car possibly impounded.
In 40 t years of driving, I have received 1 ( one) citation. It was for " illegal lane change".
It was cited, after the fact , on a snow covered New York Hiway, that another driver had illegally passed me on the right.
After 40 years of driving..........................I take this simple thing with a minute smile.
2 for parking, one was bad signage, which I beat after taking photographs of the sign and taking them to court. It was a residential handicapped sign that was so faded that you couldn't tell what it was, and it was mostly obscured by trees.
The other I was in a hurry, parked too close to the corner. I was hoping to get back out in time (I didn't)
1 - speeding, very early in my driving days, had a new (to me) car with a big engine (400 small block). When the cop asked me how fast I was going, I said I didn't know (lie). He said he clocked me at 65 in a 40. My response was "That's not bad"
