It’s all Wheezer’s fault…

Got my very first speeding ticket tonight. I was truly enjoying “Beverly Hills” by Wheezer on the radio when I noticed the flashing lights. Here’s how the conversation went:

“Do you know how fast you were going?”
“Umm, no”
“72 in a 55 zone, didn’t you see me?”
“No I guess I didn’t”
“Yeah, you pulled up behind me, went into the next lane and blew past me.”
“Wow, that wasn’t very smart, was it? Guess I was in my own little world.”
“I think you were… ”

He was pretty cool about it, I think that if I hadn’t been such a dumbass he probably would have let me off, but I agree that he couldn’t really let that slide, stupidity is always a good justification for a ticket. Luckily it was only a $30 fine instead of the stiffer one he could have doled out. The trouble is that the administrative court fee is almost twice the fine itself! The court fee is $57! This will put a bit of a crimp in my gift buying plans, guess I’ll have to be a little more creative in what I get for people. Oh, and I gotta stop listening to Wheezer:-)


One reply on “It’s all Wheezer’s fault…”

Yeah, I doubt he would have pulled you over if you hadn’t passed him like that, 72 doesn’t seem like a big deal. Oh well, at least it’s your first one.

I really like that song too. 🙂
