If you haven’t had a ticket in 3 years, you are paying too much for Auto Insurance! Not True! Well, only half true, some tickets stay 7 or more years
I recall being lured in by some Auto Insurance companies claiming to give great rates, yet after going through everything and getting some nice quotes. Way at the end, they finally tell me they need to charge a bit higher rates because unfortunately, even though I never had a ticket in over four years, that there was still a speeding ticket on my record. Apparently, if you get a two point ticket, it can stay on your record for around 7 years! What constitutes a two point ticket may vary, in my case I think it was that the speed I was ticketed for was over 100mph on the freeway. I do recall that day, was a nice day sunny day and I was in a hurry back to work to meet some big cheese, well actually some huge cheese, the boss of my boss who apparently needed to see me right away for help on something. Of course, I didn’t mind an excuse to speed having always had a heavy lead foot. Unfortunately my enjoyment was cut short as soon as the pain hit me in the gut while I quickly applied my breaks hoping to reduce the speed registered on his gun. At the rate I was going it was futile to get it under 100mph in time, I think he had me at 112mpg or 119mph. I’ve been a ‘good boy’ since then so I guess tickets do work, at least for those who can’t afford to pay them along with higher insurance rates.
So if you’re on a budget, remember to always keep it under 100! If you’re rich, I’m jealous, guess you can keep on taunting the cops and flooring that porsche!
Another one of his ideas (to install automated speed censors/ticketing system at intersections) for a quick $350 million from the tax payers, hopefully he’s just blowing some smoke…or perhaps he’s really feeling the harsh economy too having to ration his cigars..
