I got my first ticket :(

Got my very first ticket today "careless driving"....Started out just driving around with a friend from work, he was playing around with all the buttons and stuff. I didn't relize that he had turned off my traction control untill I made a U-turn,(just my luck that they had spriklers going,so the ground was wet, and traffic was heavy so I jumped on it a little) and ended up sliding around the median, completely crossed up(probably would have looked cool on video) <-did one of these. Then I see lights going in the rear mirror...then one of these ......Anyway I have a $83.50 ticket. I am also going to take that drivers class to get the points off(which was 6). And my friend from work can either walk, or ride in the trunk I guess It could have been worse

Yeah like the cop gives a crap. They are just looking to make their quota.

"To serve and collect" That's what they're there for.

I got a speeding ticket because I was speeding.... to the hospital. My best friend was there becase of a serious car accident. Wrote me tickets for speeding and careless driveing. cops all suck. case closed.

And for the cops out there that acctually don't suck. I appologize. To both of you.

cops are ****ing pigs that just waste everyone's time with useless tickets to collect their daily quota of tickets, its pathetic. I got pulled over for not stopping completely on CAMPUS on a flashing red light about 3 weeks ago and he questioned me for 25 minutes, when I told him I was late for a very important meeting

Ok...first all, not all cops are *** holes. I'll start there. I happen to know many many cops. I've gotten out of wreckless driving tickets because the cop was too busy cussing me out to write the ticket. The one ticket I actually did get was because well...I was speeding. I don't know about other places, but most places do not have a quota. But, if you get pulled over, then you were doing something illegal, it's that simple. If you don't want to get pulled over then don't do stupid stuff. Yes, there are those cops out there that just don't care and will give you a ticket regardless, we just have to put up with them and keep going. Here's a link someone posted a while ago I've gotten a kick out of. http://www.ehowa.com/mythoughts/nospeeding.html
Anyways, yes there are horrible cops out there, but for the most part they'll be nice to you if you're nice to them. I know this because I'm related to alot of cops and friends with even more. Simplest way to avoid getting pulled over is obey the traffic laws .
I tried to do it, but it's just impossible so I guess I'll just keep praying I don't meet that cop that doesn't care how your day has been and what's going on.
Just my .02 on that one.

lowflyn, Well Said... I gave my POV on a diff post, They dont have quotas and they dont sit there just waitin on you to go one ove the PSL (posted Speed limit) I feel very safe here in Fishers that if I get pulled over its because i did someting wrong. I dont get all worked up and want to rip his head off, I explane my self and go on. If they are not " nice" to me then I would go talk to there supervisor. But if you get pulled over and get all pissed off with the cop 1. they WILL give you a ticket, and 2. they will keep your car in there head and on the notpad and watch for you, BECAUSE you had been a dick. The part of there job that has the most danger in it is pullin cars over. just my $0.02 worth. :no:

Those points must suck...no points here...eventhough I have a friend that found out the hard way that if you get 3 tickets in one year, they suspend your liscence lol. Pretty much, they don't care how many tickets you get over time lol.
