I can't believe I read the entire headline.
 
2003-03-01 10:26:11 PM
I was given a ticket for loitering because I spent too much time reading the headline of this ridiculous "story." A vote for me is a vote for TFer control of what stories get approved for the main page!

Hahahahaha. Go to hell, Wordy McWorderson.

Once a car ran over me and a girl and we got a ticket for doing it in the road.

when i was 16, i got a ticket for riding double on a moped by the sylvania (ohio) twp. police. my father had the ticket fixed. end of story.

What's the stupidest ticket you've ever received?

Illegal riding. 4 guys in an MG Midget was apparently too many for the cops in Coronado California. The cop also wanted to ticket me for underage drinking and had me blow in his face several times. Luckily I passed that test.

Weird thing is that we were returning from Tijuana where we had to pay off the Mexican cops to keep from being taken to the police station.

I got one for being parked facing the wrong direction, seriously. It was 35 dollars
 
2003-03-02 12:40:09 AM
Also, I got a ticket for doing 74 in a 70. I was so pissed. It was 85 dollars, but the judge just chuckled and made me take a "defensive driving" class and had the ticket dropped

I slid sideways on an icy bridge that was angled and grooved for reconstruction. Got fined and a couple points. My rates went up, & the dingleberries that were 8 months behind schedule on construction got a few extra mil in construction time.

/still angry

Jaywalking. And when I laughed, the cop gave me a ticket for not having ID. (I was 15, no driver license, in between schools, fresh back stateside from overseas.) I ignored them both. Probably a warrant out for me in AZ. I have met only one other person in my life that was ticketed for jaywalking.

Malinois, I did a slide on icy roads like yours once, ended up on the grass of an elementary school. A cop saw it happen, spun around, and hit the same patch I did, and ended up on the yard right next to me. He said, "Well, I was going to give you a ticket for losing control of your vehicle like that, but I don't think I'll do that now."

I got a ticket for owning a radar detector in VA once. Bastards.

Fishrockcarving, that's farking hilarious.

Public drunkeness. Luckily my friend had a PBA card, so, no ticket!
 
2003-03-02 03:10:04 AM
I was given a moving violation when I was 12 for pushing a broken down 3 wheeler down my street. I thought the cop was going to help me...instead...he ticketed me.
 
2003-03-02 03:10:11 AM
I was with a friend of mine who got a ticket for a broken tail light. Of course it was broken after the cop hit it four times with his night stick. . .Gave him a Minor in Possession too.

I fail to see how people can give out tickets for hitting a blackice patch..
it's scary..

In my hometown it is illigal to spit on the sidewalks.

I found this out when I was 16.

You can spit on the grass. You can spit on the street. But don't you dare dirty up the sidewalks!

Stupid Ticket?

I drank a 5th...

...I mean I plead the 5th...

...whatever, I'm not talking. F'ing Ashcroft.
 
2003-03-02 03:14:31 AM
I deserved all the tickets I ever got.
No really.

Ok...
This one time, I was pulled over for "running a red light."
I was fvcked up drunk. My friend was passed out in the seat next to me.
The cop came to my window and asked me if I had been drinking. I said no, and my friend woke up and said "yep."
The cop knew it, since it was so obvious, and yet he let me go with a "running a red light" ticket

Truth is, I didnt run a red light, I weaved through an intersection.

The police department in my town is a real piece of work. When I was 14 a cop "pulled" me over for running a stop sign while riding my bike. No ticket. Just a warning.
 
2003-03-02 03:16:33 AM
i got 3 tickets at once. for being too sexy and awesome simultaneously.
 
2003-03-02 03:16:37 AM
peeing on a cop
 
2003-03-02 03:17:12 AM
Wait, you got a citation for crossing between el trains? Every single time I'm on the el, at least 5 people are moving in and out of cars. I can't believe you got cited for that.

God I hate Chicago.

To keep this on-topic, it wasn't a citation by any means, but my high school was *nuts* about walking on the grass. Professors, staff, everyone would just lose their fricking mind if you even thought about walking on the grass. Meanwhile the workers from the Physical Plant were driving vehicles over the grass, completely ripping everything up, but that's high school for you.

A few years ago I chased a couple of punk kids down the road when they threw fireworks out their car into our wheatfield. I passed them approaching a stop sign and they tried to pass me, but ended up running into the side of my truck. I got a ticket for failure to signal for a turn.
 
2003-03-02 03:17:39 AM
I live in a suburb where the average age is above 50. Cops are major dicks, I've gotten pulled over for going 27 in a 25 zone. Got off, but the cop warned me that I was "pusing it". So the rest of the summer me and a couple of friends shot bottle rockes at the city hall/police station every couple of days.
 
2003-03-02 03:18:09 AM
I got a ticket because the light over my license plate didn't work. It took 4 cop cars to do that. We figured they had gotten lost on the way to the donut shop.

Went to the courthouse the next day with a receipt for a light bulb and it was dropped...

When I was 16 I was rushing to get my brother to his Tae Kwon Do class, was pulled over for speeding, and got the ticket for driving barefoot..
 
2003-03-02 03:18:59 AM
How about getting pulled over for speeding on a mountain bike? Jackasses "let me" go to traffic safety classes for speeding on a bike and for riding on the wrong side of the road too. Motherfarkers.

Bad cops, no more donuts. Find something else to do besides pulling the cyclists in town.
 
2003-03-02 03:19:17 AM
My fiance got a ticket for "failure to stay in a traffic lane" because he swerved so as not to hit several teenagers walking on the side of the road.
 
2003-03-02 03:20:23 AM
My friend got a $130 dollar ticket for "traveling in the passing lane" lost his licence too.

A stunting ticket for hooting and hollering at some girls on a street corner.(and maybe a few wagging tongues) on Jasper avenue Edmonton Alberta. $150 and 5 demerits.
 
2003-03-02 03:21:00 AM
After driving cross-country and being out-of-state for three months, I got pulled over for having an 2-day expired mechanical inspection sticker twenty minutes after crossing back over NY state line. In spite of it being a one-year-old car, my clean record, getting the inspection done that afternoon and providing documentation that I was working in California, I was still fined $105.
 
2003-03-02 03:21:01 AM
I got a ticket in Cartersville, Georgia, for having two different license plates on the same car. The expired one was stuck to the frame with a rusted nut. I'd gotten the new one earlier that day, but didn't have any tools in the car to remove the old one.

The cop was easily seven feet tall and 300 pounds, and approached the car with his hand on his gun... I didn't argue....

I got stopped and didn't have proof of insurance. The cop said I had 24 hours to produce proof. I was stopped in Wichita on my way back to Manhattan KS (3.5 hours) I called the next morning and asked where I could fax a copy of my insurance. They said I had to present it in person. I drove all the way back down and showed some lady in an office all by herself. She looked at it for about .057 seconds, and wrote the ticket off.

I got a ticket once for screaming and ranting at the top of my lungs while hammering my head against the desk in a public library. I had seen one too many "advice" posts on Fark to take it anymore.

/big lie
 
2003-03-02 03:22:56 AM
88 in a 55 mph...actually come to think of it I completely deserved it.
 
2003-03-02 03:23:05 AM
Some jackass metermaid in Minneapolis gave me a ticket for "Failing to display license plate or tabs." The front license plate had fallen off my car so I put it on the dashboard, where it was quite visible through the windshield. The jerk put the ticket over the (again, visible) license plate.

The fine is $85 but I am going to contest it. I wasn't even in the car at the time. Someone who normally is just authorized to give parking tickets wrote it.

Stupid fvcking Minneapolis cops and co always abuse their authority.

I got yanked over in Florida for having a burnt out running light. It was a loose wire--I fixed it on the spot by banging my fist against the side of the car.

Since I had NY plates, they ran a drug dog over the car, which returned a false positive. (Yes, it really was false--I've got no reason to BS here.)

Three hours later, I was sent on my way with a fixit ticket for a burnt out bulb that wasn't burnt out.
 
2003-03-02 03:24:48 AM
i NEARLY got a ticket for not having a parking permit at my school. the damnded thing slid off my dashboard, i told the stupid rent-a-cop it slid off and the only way he responded was by nodding his head like he didn't know sheeyat. yes i wanted to rip that cloth badge off his shirt.
 
2003-03-02 03:25:42 AM
Bikers need more tickets. The laws in a lot of states are the same for cars as they are bikes, so something like a speeding ticket isnt dumb.

Stupidist ticket I didnt get: Dui because I was driving via braille as the fog was so thick you couldnt see the road.
 
2003-03-02 03:26:12 AM
Ah, if you're going fast enough to be speeding and you're riding on the wrong side of the road, that's really quite adequate reason to get a ticket.

And I say that as a fellow bicyclist.
