I got a ticket! <sarcasim> YAY!!! </sacasim>

Just wanted to vent a bit and let you guys know a interesting fact.

Story:

I was making a left turn on US 441 and there was one car in front of me that turned while the light was green the light turned yellow and I decided I had enough time to get through it... Guess not. The cop pulled me over and said "You know why I pulled you over right?" I said "I think so, I didn't make the light?" he then said "Nope but you were really close *laugh*." Grrrrr! So while hes in his car I'm hoping he will let me go with a warning since I've never even had a ticket before and then I start looking around my car out of boredom and see my odometer (trip meter) is .... 666 (I took a pic to ill throw up here when I get home.) I'm not really superstitious but I had a good feeling I was going to get a ticket. Well I got one for 192 bucks and 4 points on my license! Luckily I can take a stupid online class to dodge the points but I'll still have my fine.

Fact:

The state of Florida is having red light awareness month, so if your even questionably late going through a yellow light they will probably pull you over. So be careful!

wow thats good with the awareness month my sister in Miami has told me about the insane cluster* that happens at every light when the light goes yellow. Basically you dont go when its green, you go when the cars are gone...

Its different in every state, in illinois you can finish gong through the light while its red, but in indiana you have to be done going through the intersection before it turns red.

Wow!!! I just got a speeding ticket the other day driving on a twisty backroad...CHP pulled me over...I was goign 77 in a 50!!! Yikes! The officer was like "I pulled you over because you were speeding." All I could say was "Yes, yes I was."

I hope they don't take 4 points off of my license! It will probably be more than $192.

Just be glad you all dont live here in missouri...

We dont get pulled over by cops anymore...they just take our picture and send our tickets in the mail!

Even if the tinyest bit of your car is in the intersection still when it turns... BAM-FLASH FLASH FLASH...ticket...sucks

I had the cameras in ohio. I bought some stuff from a buddy that you can spray on your license plate and it creates a glare so when the camera flashes it can't make out the picture.

^^im glad you really think that crap works. i havent had any tickets lately. <knock on wood> though i did get pulled over for having a headlight out. i pulled over as soon as he turned around. i didnt even get a chance to put his lights on. engine off, dome light on, hands on wheel. they love that stuff. no warning or anything just a "have a good day at work"

I Havent Had A Ticket Lately But At A Stop I Supposably Ran A Stop Sign Yeah I Yeilded But No Cars Were Around This Dude Was Hidden Behind A Fence, And What Was Sorry I Didnt Know He Was Behind Me And I Started Going50 In A 30 Mph Zone... And Then He Turned The Lights On Just Before He Turned Em On I Had A Feeling It Was A Cop But He Pulled Me Over For Not Stopping At The Sign.. $128.. Oh Well Just Glad He Didnt Pay Attention To The Speed Zone... Sigh Of Relief
But About The Red Light Thing Dont Know What It Is For Texas. But I Think If Its Red And We're Half Way Through Crossing They Dont Care I Did It Once In Front Of A State Trooper And Didnt Pull Me Over...

MythBusters tested that stuff and it does not work.
