$35500 after taxes.

I should know, I won a $10k scratcher in my time.

Still trading $2 for $35500 is a pretty good deal.

I usually tell the officer I have to use the bathroom.

Then, when he asks for my license, I reach into my pants, pull out a wet log of poo and slap it into his open palm.

I can usually drive away at that point and get out of sight before the officer can manage to pursue.

Gotta be careful telling a cop that you just won the lottery. He'll confiscate your ticket as evidence of drug sales activity. Not like you have a receipt for the item.

The cop is doing it wrong.  Protocol says to taser the guy and steal the ticket.

He's lucky that cop didn't confiscate that $25,000 ticket, turn in the $10,000 ticket to evidence, then the kid gets back a badly drawn copy in crayon of a winning ticket.....

/or does that only apply to cash/drugs?

The street value of the ticket over $12,000,000.

YEP

And then deny you ever had a ticket. And, if you ever manage to prove you had a winning ticket that the cop stole, the police department will ofc side with the cop. And you'll be harassed/driven out of town.

FTA: Hingham police continued Lowe's run of good luck by issuing just a verbal warning and urging him to drive safely.

Jeebus Krispies. The guy won $50k - surely he can afford a farking ticket.

You are going to trust a stranger that has the ability to arrest you and then see what happens when the ticket goes through police department hands. There is no paper record of the ticket being yours.

I guess he never had a bad experience with the police.

Trading $2 for $3 is a pretty good deal.

Tell us a tale, citizen.  If you amuse us, there is a chance you may avoid punishment.  Speak!

The cop didn't just beat him dead on the side of the road and make off with the ticket?

Luck like that dude should probably go buy a lotto ticket.

Nice. I had a friend that has actually been pulled over twice for speeding and gotten out of the tickets because he says he's about to crap himself. He said the trick was to tell the officer that he's okay with paying the fine, just as long as the cop would let him at least follow him to his house/public restroom to go. He said both times the officer let him go.

Once I told the cop when he pulled me over: "Sorry, lead foot. Just got on the highway and went too fast. You nabbed me right around the 1st corner. My bad."

He still gave me the ticket but without the week ban I deserved.

Most people in the county also have not been to Disney World.  That puts that "happiest place on Earth" moniker in serious jeopardy.

Guy should've waited until it was pouring rain and blow though a red light.
Fumble with you wallet/license for a bit... take your time while the cop is waiting... let him get drenched.
"Sir, do you know why I pulled you over?"
"(Big grin) Yeah.  Do you know why I ran that red light?"

Trading $2 for a change to win $10k is a terrible deal. $2 for a few minutes for entertainment , maybe

There are alot of people that if they have the internet might surf once a week, and watch the local news nearly every night. I would am sure that these people still think the police are good people with a few bad apples.

As they die off I want to see what happens to the blue line and how society responds, assuming marshall law has not been declared and it is too late.

I had just bought some cleaning supplies when I got pulled over for speeding.  He saw a mob, broom, and a bucket and asked me if I was a janitor.

I said 'Yes, officer, and I have a wife and kids, and I hardly make any money, a speeding ticket would be devastating to me.'

He let me go with a warning.

/I'm not really a janitor

Won $1200 a few years back.  Got in a car wreck a few weeks later that cost me, that's right, $1200.

I am thinking it was more the mob he saw that made him let you go.

meh, I'm poor and realize this amount of money is nothing in the grand scheme of things
 
2014-02-28 11:08:30 PM  
...aaaaaaaand this is exactly why fining as punishment needs to be based on % of net worth (with a bare minimum) rather than a dumb standard sum.

Oh, your township is strapped for cash? Well stop letting rich assholes get off with ludicrously speeding through just because they know all they'll suffer is the equivalent of the scolding you give the dog.
