Everyone knows that the typical response to the question “is there a reason why you were speeding” is usually a low grumbled form of the word “no”, but what about those brave optimists that try to talk their way out of a ticket? Here are a few funny ones reported by various police officers.
“ I heard this was a bad area, and was scared that someone was going to jump out and attack my car, so I was driving really fast to get out of it!”
“Oh, sorry officer, I thought you wanted to race”.
“Someone must have spray painted the speed limit sign, because it definitely said 85, not 35.”
“I’m claustrophobic, I can’t drive in big herds of cars, and so I had to speed up to get away from them!”
“I swear, the person behind me was following me, I’m actually really glad that you pulled me over, you saved my life!”
“I forgot I left my insurance card at home and got really scared that I would need it because so many people are purposely causing accidents, so I was trying to hurry home and get it!”
Some get credit for creativity, and some get sympathy, so kudos to those who get the famed “warning” instead of a ticket. To avoid further ticketing charges, always make sure to have your up to date registration, insurance card, license, and solid excuse, but more importantly, always drive safely, and be aware of those around you.
