I can’t believe awhile ago I received my first ever speeding ticket. It’s amazing how much time passes, I received it in February, and I am going to court to fight it tomorrow, hoping the judge will give me a break. This is along the line’s of what I’m going to say:
Yes I was speeding, and I completely admit it, but it was my first time getting a ticket, & pulled over. I never even got a warning, and I’ve been driving since APril 06, 2004. If I was speeding all the time, I would have gotten pulled over & given a ticket(s) a long time ago.There was no one one the road on February 2, 2005 except the cop and myself; not only that, but when he turned around he was tailgating me all the way from Greenfield Dr. through the round-a-bout until he pulled me over.
I’m just asking for a break this one time, never again, just this once! If I have to pay this ticket my insurance will raise, meaning I will have to work more hours to pay for the difference, taking away from time that I need for school. I’ve already ha to cute back to raise my grades, and if I have to pick up more hours to pay for insurance, I might as well take F’s for most of my classes.
I pay for most of my school lunches, and gas for my truck. I’ll even write an 3-4 page essay why I shouldn’t speed, or why speeding is dangerous. Just this once! This ticket has been hanging over my head since I got it, and I can’t have this ticket now….
That’s all I have so far, what do you think? Johanna told me I’d probably get Judge Caldwell, and that he’s really nice and understanding. Wish me good luck?
