My only "real" ticket was for speeding while heading down the hill on Hwy 7 just before you enter Norval (just outside of Georgetown, Ontario). People that are familiar with the area know it is (was?) a common place for speed traps.
The funny thing about this one was that I was 17 and on my BICYCLE!! Up to that point, I thought I was allowed to do anything on my bike.
2 speeding (15 over for both, both reduced)
1 for passig in a no passing zone. I got a letter in the mail 2 days later stating that the charge was withdrawn. Followed up with the detatchment and it was true. Never even had a chance to pay it, nor did I find out it was withdrawn. (I still had to go to court though.)

I had worked 20 hours and totally didn't see the other vehicle. Learned two lessons that day. First one being SLEEP!
Yep, same here! working 3 days straight after a fire at Sick Kids Hospital. On the way home that parked car just jumped right out in front of me without signalling, looking, or yielding.
40% surcharge on your insurance, that'll learn you real fast. When I renewed last summer, it was the first time I've had a discount.
Apparently flashing your high beams at another driver on the highway means there is a speed trap ahead. Who knew....
