My Tickets

My Tickets…

Ticket 1 (1994)
It took them 4 years to get me. Here’s how they did it. I had to pick my roommate up at the air port and he went to an air port he didn’t normally fly in from so I went to the wrong one. So I was rushing to get to the right one. I went to Oakland instead of San Francisco. I had just paid the toll on the bay bridge when the cop was on my tail. CHP. I didn’t have anywhere to pull over so I road the length of the bridge and pulled over. I asked him if he wanted my registration, I had never got pulled over before. He said nah he already ran my plates on the bridge. He asks me if I was a criminal law student or something. I said nope. Maybe I shoulda. He said that because I did everything right. I read a book called “A speeder’s guide to avoiding tickets” It turns out the bridge was a 50 mph and I was doing like 85. He marked it down to 65 mph probably cuz I did all that crap in the book 🙂 I went to traffic school and it didn’t go on my record. The ticket
was $106. I guess they have that bridge rigged with cameras and the toll booth guy ratted me out. That’s just like cops, always doing it dirty.

Ticket 2 (1997)
In Michigan. Me and Warp were driving back from getting pizza when I round this corner into Andrews town. I was slowing down when the cop hit me with his radar. I didn’t have a dectector cuz those bitches stole it the other summer. I was slowing down too, I think he got me like 75 in a 55, I was going like 100  hahaha. The guy looked just like Newman on Seinfeld. He gave me all the usual, talking about danger blah blah. Yeah dude whatever. So after he gave me the ticket (He knew he couldn’t do jack crap to a Californian in Michigan) he took of like 80 mph to go to, GET THIS, the donut shop. Well there was one in the gas station he went to 🙂 Bitch. The cops near my college were so dirty. I would hear stories all the time of the crap they pulled. They were the kinda cops that drop a bag of dope on you saying OH look what I found 🙂 That one didn’t go on my record either as far as I know.

Ticket 3 (1999)
I was driving along in Irvine racing a girl in a Honda. After beating her, a Motorcycle Cop (the worst kind of cop) was sitting with his bike behind a Stop Light pole hit me with laser. Like a damn smiper. As he hit me, my V1 went off with a laser warning but by then there’s nothing you can do. Detectors are not the answer to Laser. He then told me I was doing like 72 in a 50 which was a total lie. I was at most in the lower 60s. Right after he pulled me over he got someone else at work and wrote down the same exact speed on his ticket 72 in a 50 proving he’s a lying pig. The guy at work took his ticket and mine to court and got out of his but I just went to traffic school. I should have fought it. Those Irvine Moto Cops are mo fos. I added a K-40 Laser Jammer afterwards in my old car.

Ticket #4 (November, 2005 – 9am)
I had just left my dads and got on I-80 west to San Francisco. I went into a big ticket area. I think my dad told me but I forgot. I was cruising in and out between the cars at 85+. A CHiP finally caught me. He was super mad because he had to work so hard to catch me. I didn’t see him otherwise I would have slowed down and made it easier to catch me. He runs over and goes “Tell me why I shouldn’t arrest you right now!” I just played dumb and acted like I had no idea what I’m doing. When he looked up my license he saw it was clean. So he sticks me with “unsafe lane change” and Speeding 85 in 65. This was 9 hour drive from my house. So what I did was just delay the ticket and drove up to my dads. I went to court and thought that’s the time where the cop shows up and if they miss it, you get off. But instead that was just the time when you go guilty or not and ask for a court date. But everyone before me was saying guilty and the judge was giving huge discounts on their tickets. Some people said they don’t have any money and he knocked off even more. So I said guilty and he took off the unsafe lane change and knocked about $200 off the ticket and I got traffic school. I did an online traffic school and because it’s web, I did it in like 1-2 hours. I totally recommend going to court and seeing if you can get your ticket reduced.

Ticket #5 (April 2007)
Not really a ticket but he busted me for speeding then stuck me with something else and left off the speeding. Ultimately I used a lawyer to get out any fines  except the lawyer fee.

Escapes

I’ve got pulled over a ton and I get off often.

Escape #1 (1997)
I got pulled over one other time. He asked me that question they learn to ask in pig school “Do you know how fast you were going?” This is a trick question to get you to admit to speeding or to deny it. But you get out of this question by saying “no I wasn’t paying attention” They hate it when you answer this way because they have no way of disproving that you were not paying attention. The cop then goes into the story about how dangerous it is to be going 50 in a 35 (yeah whatever) to which you sit there with this awe look on your face like you’re buying it. Since he couldn’t get me to admit to doing anything and he didn’t have radar so he had to let me go. He started to walk away and I was waiting for the ticket, so I said “is that it?” He said “oh why you want more?” I said no. and he left. Pig.

Escape #2 (2004?)
I had a carload of people coming back from LA on the 405. We were cruising in the carpool lane at like 80-85. A CHiP pulled us over. I pulled off to the side. They made me get out and do a drunk driving test (just walking around). Then at the end, let us go. Awesome!

Escape #3 (2007)
Irvine is one of the 10 safest cities. So there are a ton of cops and nothing to do. They say the cops are super bored. So they pull over people randomly and double cars on you like you’re about to attack them. One night I’m in my sweats and I was driving from one apartment to another across the street. I took off and a cop pulls me over. He tried to say I didn’t complete to a complete stop in my apartment complex. This area is not a public street so I can do whatever I want. The stop sign there is optional. They then proceeded to dig through my engine and under my car to discover two illegal mods. See they make up some bullshit reason to pull you over and hope they will catch you on other things like alcohol, drugs, illegal car mods, etc. What assholes. It’s no different than the Europe secret police. They threatened to two my car. I played dumb and said my friend did the mods (which was technically true). They said if I’m caught they would tow me. So essentially I did nothing and they just harassed me because they were bored. They didn’t give me a ticket or anything. But I went and removed those two mods (at my expense) because I was scared and lost 10 hp.

Escape #4 (Oct, 2011)
I see about 3-5 miles ahead there’s a cop that has pulled someone over. I think to myself, oh they’re going to go after me next. So I should have done a U-TURN and chose another road. But I continued on. Just as I was about to pass the cop, he gets done with the person he pulled over and did a U-TURN and starts following me. He pulled me over and asked me a bunch of questions. He said I had a light out on my license plate and that I had tinted windows. I said I had an appointment to get them removed already. I asked to look at the license plate and yeah it was out. I thanked him and he let me go without anything because he was just fishing. I had done nothing wrong.

      Why?
      Hey, I'm stuck in CA driving with these idiots all the time. But you can't complain if you're from TX about CA drivers, although it is the only TX place I have been, Houston drivers are just as bad.

      Asian Drivers
      Parker must be Asian...."they drives suck"?

      Why?
      WHY? Because 90% of them are MEXICANS. Majority of them dont have a license and carry fake id. Its their culture thats how they drive.
    • Ophelia on:
      Why?
      The way I see it, at least in Los Angeles (and San Diego--the other counties of California I've been in have it far less pronounced than these two), a lot of the problems seen on the roads can be attributed to a culture that places great value on speed. Essentially, people in L.A and S.D. are trained from an early age to have their gratification instant, and thus they never learn patience. This is why drivers will speed up to block you when you want to change lanes, this is why tailgating is so rampant, this is why they rarely ever come to a complete stop at stop signs, and this is why there's so much lane-weaving: These are drivers who want to go fast and see slowing down or stopping as an admission of inferiority. For the record, people blocking to stop me when I'm changing lanes is an extremely common occurrence that I figured out a good way to ensure you can get into the lane you need fairly quickly: As long as the traffic is not too congested, just slow down by about 5 miles per hour and get in behind them. The driver trying to block you is doing so either because they're not paying attention, or they cannot stand the thought of someone coming over in front of them. In both cases, they will gladly let you in behind them. (Congestion creates a problem because it means there will be someone else behind them who will think the same thing, and the person behind them likewise, and so forth.) It is an animal instict at work. For most creatures, seeing another creature with their back turned to them indicates the back-turned creature has superior authority. Likewise, a creature taking up a space behind another creature is an act of submission. For some reason, Californian drivers fall to these animal instincts and treat their cars as extensions of themselves. They don't want you getting into their lane in front of them because, subconsciously, they interpret it as you asserting authority over them, but they'll let you in behind them because they see it as you acknowledging their superiority. That's what I think.

      Why?
      That's exactly it. It's the attitude of it's ME me me and the whole world doesn't exist besides me.
    • expectnothing on:
      Why?
      California people tailgate because there's so many damn people, if you didn't, the line of cars would stretch from MEXICO to Oregon. They added 800,000 illegal alien drivers the other year. So that's why. As long as they are not crazy close which I define as you can't even see their headliights behind you. Otherwise, that's how close people drive in RUSH hour. Otherwise, in normal conditions, they're just tailgating and being aholes if it's not rush hour.

      Why?

    • John Carter on:
      Why?
      The CORE reason that California drivers have become (Yes! They were once exemplary drivers!) the worst dang drivers in the country; ATTTITUDE! Many people in California have become extremely selfish, arrogant, rude, and just plain INCONSIDERATE. And it shows clearly in the way they drive. It is a "Me, me, me" attitude that explains why they tailgate and drive as fast as their vehicle will go, with no regard to the safety of themselves or others; they steal the legal right-of-way of as many other drivers that they can; and they will never lower their high-beams, no matter whom they blind! I was born and raised in California, and I used to love it. Now I cannot wait to leave!
    • John Carter on:
      Why?
      It is the result of the pervasive entitlement attitude that has swept over California (I too am a native)! This selfish and inconsiderate attitude reflects clearly in the driving habits of so many people in California.
    • John Carter on:
      Why?
      You are absolutely correct! I live here (in Calif) and I completely agree and sympathize with you!

  • About

    I’ve driven in California since 1991. I’ve spent many trips running up and down the state as well as driving in many other states. After all of this driving, I became fed up with how bad California drivers on. I wanted to point out what they do to either help change a few drivers or at least entertain the rest of the world with Californian’s horrible driving.

    I’m located in Orange County in a couple of the richest areas. I see every type of car that is out there in this area. It’s like a car show. Going to a car show isn’t exciting anymore because you see most of the cars driving around anyway. I also work at a place where people buy all the different types of cars. We have Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Lotus, etc. So you can even see a lot of the cars in the work parking lot.
