speeding ticket? no - although I was once clocked at 92 mph.

I'd been doing 85 when some seriously crazy driver came up behind me doing somewhere over 100. Right in my tailpipe, so I goosed it trying to find a break in the action to my right when we were clocked. I slipped inbetween two small stock trailers and slammed the brakes so I wouldn't hit the trailer in front of me. There was a whole Trooper academy class waiting for us on the other side of the overpass. Out of about 12 vehicles, I was one of 3 they let go. But the crazy driver? Oh man! it was ugly....

....but the worst was when I lived in an apt. that was exempt from getting parking permits needed in the area. (Hair salon in the street level unit, therefore we were all 'commerical' property, not residents) I racked up several parking tickets because I got home a half hour before the parking ban was lifted. Paid 'em all.

But one got lost in the mail a few days, so it arrived late and incurred another $15 fine. Didn't know it, was never notified.

7 YEARS LATER - I couldn't renew my license. They kept telling me I didn't have insurance, wouldn't take proof of insurance. Three weeks of calling all over the capital city, no answers. Finally this guy tells me the party line about the insurance is just what they tell people to get them off the phone, suggested I call over to the courthouse. Dial the number, get an automated response, plugged in my SSN as requested and learned I was going to jail. There was a warrent out for my arrest over paying a parking ticket two days late 7 years before.

Took days to untangle it, but the people at the courthouse were super nice. I was so clean cut while I waited among people just getting out of jail, they pulled me out of line and opened a window just for me. I was out of there in ten minutes. Never even got to put on my orange jumpsuit.
