I drive too fast to get a speeding ticket.

I haven't actually driven in a few years, and i've never really enjoyed it in any case. though i am surprised at how few tickets that my brother has gotten, considering that when i was a teenager and he drove down to pick me up (i still lived with our parents at the time), we'd routinely make the trip back in about 90 - 100 minutes. covering nearly 300 miles. of course, it helped my brother had one of those devices that detects the speed radar.

I'm really struggling to believe that he's still alive, considering that's an average speed of over 150mph! What did he drive?

I think perhaps it's because many tickets get changed to 'impeding traffic'.

ya i was just keeping up with traffic dident even know what the speed limit was and got pulled over and given a ticket for doing 5 over 125$ ticket

then next year i was driving to school and got pulled over for driving with snow tires on. on april 2ed (the deadline was april 1st) got 200$ for that and 500$ for no insurance. i had street tires i just dident know the date. and to top it off it snowed the next day!

That's awful, I never knew there was a deadline for driving with snow tires. And 5 over the speed limit isn't usually an issue in most zones (unless it's 40 mph or under).

There is no reason to speed; it's not worth paying the $150+ fine, especially if you're somewhere with higher 1st time fines like me ($350 plus $50 for each repeated offense).

I remember when my dad got a speeding ticket, the sheriff said:he was driving 75 and my father said he drove at 70 mph. The cop kept on insisting that he went 75 mph, and my father said "do whatever u have to do I have places to go" in a angry voice. Any ways I thought that was pretty hilarious.!! Lol

Some people can't drive due to illness or disability. I had a stroke in my twenties, I even taught aerobics. So I can see why some don't drive. I am better now though. It is impossible to live as you said, especially when you have no help going anywhere.

Also, depending on where you live, you don't have to drive. Plenty of people in Chicago just use the L and walk. Same in New York. It's honestly cheaper to not have a car.

If I didn't have to drive where I currently live, I absolutely would not. Millennials are tending to choose not to drive for a variety of reasons, most of which are mine as well or I at least agree with. I waiting till was 18 before getting my licence and wouldn't have gotten it then if my dad would have continued driving me to campus. I'm actually attempting to move out of Ohio due to our lack of public transport (among other reasons) and I hate driving THAT MUCH. So the only reason 8% doesn't shock me is because I'd guess there aren't a ton of Millennials on here.

I don't drive due to medical problems, but the bus here in my city is always packed. For me, I pay $20 a month to ride the bus and I don't have vehicle expenses like repairs, insurance, payment, or gas. It saves me a lot of money!

I don't drive because I have a seizure disorder...although I haven't had any in a year and my neurologist said it was okay for me to pursue getting a driver's license. I usually have to have someone take me where I need to go. I don't like it; but I don't have very many options. The public transportation system in my area is extremely unreliable and I have to schedule at least three days in advance.

You could always sign up for driver's ed classes. Then you could go out driving with a trained instructor and I believe you can schedule it around your convenience (within normal business hours for the place).

I've never gotten a ticket.

When I was in college, I would occasionally drive 5 or so mph faster than the speed limit on the interstate, but never got pulled over. Now I have hand controls and it's hard enough to get up to the speed limit (without cruise, that is) so I don't go over at all anymore. In fact, our interstate speed limits were raised to 80 mph on April 1st and I am still driving 75. Saves 17 cents per gallon on gas and I'm not in a big hurry to get to where I'm going.

I've been driving 20ish years and I've never received any ticket for any reason. I've been pulled over twice - once for not paying a toll (my toll tag malfunctioned) and once for speeding in a school zone (I missed the first school zone sign but since I was slowing down for the second sign, and hadn't been speeding over the regular speed limit before that, the officer let me go).

I've been in only one accident, which was less than a year ago, when a truck rear-ended me while I was stopped at a stop light.

I got pulled over for speeding exactly one time, and it was when I was a very new driver and didn't quite have a sense for how fast I was going. I usually stick to the slow lane and never go more than five mph above the speed limit (which is standard for most drivers around here), so I never speed. Not much for aggressive driving, anyway.

I've never had a ticket of any kind and I've been driving for 25 years. There's just no real excuse for getting a speeding ticket. If you can't concentrate on what your doing while driving and accidentally go over the speed limit then you should just take the bus. If you speed on a regular basis, you'll probably end up in an accident at some point and I have no empathy for you if you get hurt due to your own actions. If you hurt someone else...well the court system will take care of you for that.

What does anyone of the DMV? Nice place, right? I'm totally kidding! I hate waiting over there!!! I remember when I first went to go get my ID. I

I waited, filled out paperwork, took my picture, and was told it was coming in the mail in about 2 weeks at the most. I waited over 2 weeks, and been checking in with them constantly for it. They told me they "lost trace of it" and then I had go back, and do it again! It gets me real frustrated. D:<

I won't even go into the driver's test story. It's a pain though, and annoying.

I actually live ten minutes or less away from probably the quickest DMV/Tag & License place in the US lol. Jacksonville FL is where I lived most of my life and their DMVs are AWFUL long waiting with at least 50 people in there at a time. Seats always full. Moved to where I'm very close to a DMV that is in a different city from where I live (I live on the city line) and I swear to you you are in there for most things LESS THAN 5 MINUTES. It is awesome.

Don't know why people assume folks are lying. What would even be the benefit to lying? Personally, I don't drive all that often, and I don't like to drive fast at all. It's unlikely I'd get a speeding ticket, given that. Won't say it'll never happen, ever, but it has not so far.

I've only had my license for half a year and haven't received a speeding ticket and thanks to the cruise button I don't see any reason to speed ever except in a real emergency or if I was mistaken about the speed limit (neither of which usually happen).

I got a warning for driving 60mph in a 50mph zone. The speed limit is normally 60mph but there was construction (with no workers) on the other side of the road. There was also no traffic because I was driving at 1am.

I didn't know that enforcing laws is considered fraudulent. With the revenue generated, you can get decent roads, sheriffs to investigate so-called "real crimes", and more jail space for "real criminals".

This alleged fraud is easy to thwart -- drive the speed limit.
