If it was just a warning and not an actual ticket or accident, it shouldn’t affect your driving record or insurance rates. Try not to beat yourself up!

I don’t think warnings count for much at all…don’t beat yourself up! Also, you just reminded me I need to pay my $215 speeding ticket soon!

Could be worse.

Yeah, it won’t go on your record. I once got 4 warnings in a month… Hey, I was always late for work… a lot! :p

@beekiss2: I’m still mad about it. Girls weekend from Massachusetts to Maine and BAM! Eight other people were pulled over on the same small stretch of highway that we were able to count as we passed through. Can we say end of the month quota not being met?!

Jerks.

@beekiss2: You have a much better attitude than I do! I’ll admit I’ve had nothing but pretty bad experiences with police (including a totally bogus arrest when I was 19) despite being very law-abiding, so I’m kind of bitter toward cops. If I were you, I would have been in here saying that high school kids know damn well how to stay out of incoming traffic so the limit shouldn’t be 20mph.

But I guess I just like to bitch 😉

It’ not going on anyone’s insurance.  It just means that next time you get pulled over, you might not be so lucky. Especially if it’s the same officer.

Btw., despite all the rumors, there is no such thing as a ticket quota that needs to be met each month. If that was the case, my Fiance would be giving out tickets left and right. If you don’t try to argue, bargain, or flirt with the officer, or give him some sob story, chances are that you get off with a warning.  If you stick to the traffic rules, you have a 0% chance to get a ticket.  Just saying.

@AprilJo2011: Ah ok. That’s a strong, long-lasting myth then…I hear it everywhere! I definitely do not try flirt/argue/bargain/or sob when I get pulled over. I actually thought that’s why I do get tickets!

Even if there is no such thing as an official ticket quota, and in some states there have been charges against PD’s for having quotas, I still get annoyed by speed traps. I was following the flow of traffic and in no way driving recklessly.

I only cried one time when i got pulled over.. i was doing 25 over the speed limit and the cop was screaming at me that he could take me to jail. I finally sputtered out that my mom had been watching my daughter and that she had fallen and hit her head on the fireplace and was at the hospital with what they thought was a concussion.

Needless to say he felt like an ass.. and I got an escort =)
