Number of tickets you have

How many tickets have you gotten (for speeding or any other MOVING violation, no parking tickets) and how old are you. Post your reply and respond to the poll so I can get a visual look at it. Tickets only count if you had to pay them, if you got them dropped don't count them.
I am 22 and ticket free

what sucks, in Texas if you have a CDL [which I do] you have only one option. pay the ticket, you are inelligible for defensive driving or anything els that may dismiss the ticket.

oh and, I'm 27 with 4 or 5 that I acctually had to pay [though in the past 4 or 5 years I've only had 1 or 2]

I have never had a speeding ticket(knock on wood),pretty good for 26 years old. I have gotten a ticket for an accident that was my fault though.

now the question, how many times have you been pulled over for speeding and either sweet talked your way out of it or got it dismissed

Well, I'm 21 with zero tickets. None on my last car. Got this car at 19. Two weeks having it, I got a verbal warning for rolling through a stop. I think the cop realized I was still learning to drive a stick.

Although, one State Trooper knows me, and his buddies know of me... not because of being pulled over, but "trespassing" when I got stuck during that infamous mudding incident.

If I were to ever get pulled over again, I'd probably get busted for tint and exhaust, maybe even a noise violation.

I haven't gotten a ticket since I was 18. I got 2 like a month apart-on my way to summer class each time. Damn speed traps!!! My record is perfect now though, which is a plus since insurance is expensive for these cars! I guess I'm lucky, since I def escaped a few somehow. Oh the stories I could tell. I'm 23 now.

I OWN THAT! I got pulled over flying down the highway (at such a speed I will not diclose b/c it is frowned upon here, and it was ridiculously stupid, lets just say it was dammmnnnn fast) in a Lotus Esprit last summer and the cop so could never have caught me if I hadn't wanted him to, but I pulled over and pretty much all he said after we had "chatted" for a while, was sweet car, keep it under 100.

when I was in colloege I took pride in having been pulled over for speeding in literally every town between my home town [victoria TX] and my college town [near dallas TX] almost 15 little towns over 5 years.

Kinda funny because right after posting, I left to meet up with another WRX, and drove by a State Trooper going 8 over... Damnit, I wasn't speeding, look down to adjust my thermostat, and when I look back up, I see a State Trooper in the turning lane, look down and it says 53mph (limit 45). Luckily, I wasnt worth his while to turn around and come after me. That seems to happen to me a lot.

Odd thing is that even though how "attention grabbing" my car is, and how much I speed. Compaired to my buddy that has a beatup old Nissan, speed more than me, but only gets caught in areas I speed casually too, he now his license suspended this week after his last speeding ticket.

I bought my car a few weeks after I turned 19, I am 21 now. I've gotten 2 tickets, one for 72 in a 55 and one for 95 in a 45, lost my license for the second one. I had 9 points on my license and now I am down to 4. I also got out of a DUI for my second ticket and only got a underage drinking charge. Haven't gotten a ticket since Dec. 4, 2004. Most of that would be because I didn't have my license for 5 months(still drove everyday) and in June of '05 I bought a '93 Escort wagon that gets 39mpg average. I drive my Subaru about once a week and only have to fill up on gas about once a month. My insurance never went up and this year it actually went down $500.

3 speeding tickets and 1 reckless driving (Fish-tailing the Bimmer). But i have at least 6 warnings...The BMW gave allowed me to pull the innocent "opps that was a mistake, im incredibly sorry" speech. My last ticket (a week and a half ago, in the WRX) the cop didn't say anything to me but "License" walked away, 5 min later i got handed a pink ticket and a "slow down". It was for 46 in a 25

Thank god for pre-paid legal services

ah, and i recently turned 21

Sounds like I got everyone beat. My first ticket was in 97, I was driving my mom's car and was pulled over for 101 in a 55. I'm 25 now and have had 7 tickets and got out of 5. None were with the WRX. Oh, and 4 different police departments know me by name.
