“I seriously thought about going to the DPS office and just saying I lost my license and getting a new one and not paying the ticket.”

 

Best to be honest, pay up, take responsibility and BE MORE CAUTIOUS!

Why did you first think to lie to get out of the ticket?  Do you feel you shouldn’t have been ticketed?

EDITED TO NOT HURT FEELINGS BASED ON DIFFERING OPINIONS ABOUT POLICE.

@brandybelle:  WOWWWWWWWWWW. Your post is disgusting. Think about saying ” f the police” next time you call 911 becuase you or a loved one needs help. There are some police officers that abuse their power but you have NO right to dismiss respect for ALL of them.

It happens to the best of us… Valentine’s Day I had pulled out of the parking lot at the grocery store. They had just put a No Left Turn sign there due to all the accidents that occur on that street as of late….

I, of course, did not think to look for this sign and turned left out of habit. There were two cops sitting there waiting for people to do that. I got a $250 ticket from that cop as a Vday gift.

It is so embarrassing getting pulled over! and the worst part is when they ask you, “Do you know why I pulled you over?” and I say, “Uhhhh…..No…..”. “There was a no left turn sign right in front of you.” “Oh……” I looked like a moron!

Taught me to always pay attention, that is for sure…..

Well, now you’ve learned your lesson, I hope.

Please don’t think about lying to get a new license or to avoid a ticket.  There are ways to appeal tickets if you think you didn’t break the law, but from your description, it sounds like you knew you were at fault.  Lying just makes it worse.

Not sure why people are blowing up at you for this post? Doesn’t sound to me like you’re showing any disrespect for cops.

Regardless, you’re doing the smart thing by paying the ticket. I always thought that if you crossed the line on yellow, it’s not running a red light. Oh well.

@MrsBot:  I’m pretty sure that’s universal here, but OP was in Mexico, so the laws are probably different?

@brandybelle:  I’m not arguing at all. I was replying to your post. If you don’t have any respect for law enforcement, don’t ever call the police. Simple as that!

I was on my way home from work late one night after a REALLY crappy day. At the end of our block there is a small one way (only half a block and its actually a no turning sign not really a one way) that runs into the major highway. So coming home I can see that road and I make sure no one else is coming and turn there to get to my house (otherwise I would have to go about a mile out of my way to get basically back to the road I was turning on that is just a block from my house). As soon as I make my right hand turn to get on the street my house is on just off that “one way” a cop car comes over the hill and follows me to my driveway where they pull me over. My FI watches as I get a ticket from our backdoor and waves at the cops as they drive away…jerk lol.

Im not sure what the law is there but i know my dad got a speeding ticket whilst on holiday in South Africa which he still hasnt paid. He knows that if he were to go back there, as soon as he gets to customs they will demand the fine plus god knows what for not paying! Definately pay it incase you need to go back! and be more careful next time.

PS. my dad is a traffic cop and even he gets tickets- dont worry yourself about it, your only human!
