How Many Traffic Tickets do You Have?

I can say since I learned how to drive I can count on one hand about 4. The last five years none. It has been a challenge for both my DH and myself to keep our perfect record. My DH had a very scary moment when trying to obey the traffic laws, a group of men on the freeway got out with the intention of trying to hurt him just because he stopped for the traffic sign. People get upset when you try to obey the law, it says do not turn on a red light but that does not stop people from honking and gesturing because you're following the rules. I hate driving, and try and make a point of staying off the road before the holidays. It has been a challenge for the last 15 years to have a clean DMV record. It can cost you a job and insurance rates, so I don't get people.

  • I had a speeding ticket like 10 yrs ago. Since then I got a red-light ticket. It was a complete stupid accident, I paused to allow somebody to exit a driveway and didn't realize my green light had turned red in that time period. I went to traffic school for it.

    On the other hand, my husband has had 3 speeding tix this year and 1 last year. He is 1 ticket away from losing his license.
