Not from an officer, but rather from one of those pesky traffic light cameras. We all hate those right? Well I decided to have a little fun with it.

I thought that these tickets don't go on your 'record'? That's why insurance doesn't go up if you get one of these automated tickets. Right? I think that it goes on your record the same way that a jaywalking ticket goes on your record.

I could be wrong. People don't seem to ever answer this question the same.

As far as I know it doesn't. One of the officers on this board can correct me if I am mistaken.

Probably worth it for $25. Out here it's $351. ($500 after you pay court/taxes/etc). I think it's funny so..

Edit oh it was SPEED not red light camera.. Well.. We don't have those .. yet

If you're going to disguise your face why disguise your plates for a block or two?

I have gotten a red light one (not on purpose though) and it cost a lot more than the speeding ones do. I think it was around $150 or so.

I'll keep that in mind next time. I though the knife would be sufficient, but you can barely make it out in the pic.

Re: I got a speeding ticket......on purpose.

What was the point of this, exactly?

Are you going to challenge the ticket? Enjoy the judge!

You can't contest these unless you can prove it was you not driving the car...

I guess in this case it's possible. God that's hilarious.

Hadn't noticed the knife until you brought it up. So, did you pull up next to anyone and freak 'em out?

Nah, but I did pass a truck right before I reached the intersection. They were probably like WTF at first until they realized what I was doing.

The purpose was to get the funny picture. Why would I contest it, I got it intentionally and it's only $25 bucks anyways.

I thought the point was to contest it. Since they can't prove it was you driving the car, you can not only speed on purpose, you can actually get away with it!
