I need your advice

I asked a friend of mine to come and pick me up ..i told him that i would pay for the tolls and i would give him money for gas ..he agreed...he got a ticket for 290 dollars for speeding ...and he says to me well i wouldnt have gotten the ticket if you wouldnt have asked me to come and get you the problem is he wants me to pay 200 hundred for the ticket and then tolls and gas...he's only willing to put up a hundred..i feel like to should give him something towards the ticket but maybe 90 dollars ..what do you guys thinks

  • Did you tell him to speed like an idiot? No. So no you shouldn't have to pay any of it.

  • I agree w/ the advice of the other ladies. You are not responsible for his ticket, however, if you choose not to help pay it, don't expect to get a ride from him again. Only you can decide what is more important.

  • Are you kidding? His speeding has nothing to do with you. Pay the gas & tolls. The ticket is HIS ticket.

  • I would NOT pay the ticket. He was speeding that has nothing to do with you.

  • He chose to speed. You are in no way responsible for that.

    Answer by Laila-May at 10:44 PM on May. 18, 2010

  • exactly!! He chose to speed --u didnt tell him to speed. if he was going somewhere else he would hv stiil been speeding because ppl who dont follow the speed limit usually just dont regardless of where they r going. so dont pay the ticket. i wouldnt ask him again either since he is so willing to blame u. say he wrecked his car--would he expect u to pay for that too???
