Can I Get Out of a Ticket?
I am often asked if having a husband in law enforcement means I can get out of a ticket.
The answer is obviously no. And I don’t think it should. I didn’t thank the officer for the ticket, but it also didn’t ruin my day. While I am not admitting to the offense, I would NEVER run a red light on purpose and endanger my family. A ticket is preferable to an accident and since this is only my 2nd in the 25 years I’ve been driving, I’m probably due.
Ironically Craig now has to sign up for overtime to pay my fine. Lucky for him I know a great little intersection where the citations practically write themselves.
Want a Sticker Kid?
I love the picture because Hank is proudly displaying the sticker he was given by the citing officer, but nervously holding my citation. I may have called him a traitor for accepting the sticker while my other children refused in solidarity. So, Sophie may be too old for stickers and Maren may realize we have a whole drawerful at home.
To make up for his treachery, Hank was also extra helpful the rest of the day in helping me identify all red lights. Even if they were east/west and I was travelling south.
When was your last alleged traffic violation? Did you get out of it? Did you deserve to?
