I'll have to be careful when I move to Alberta.


:shock:
You will do us the courtesy of letting us know when this happens won't you?....I will get a helicopter licence to commute to work and give you some space :twisted:

Do you have so little faith in your Albertan police officers that they won't find me before I find you? If they don't find me, that obviously means you have nothing to worry about on the roads.

Why does everyone separate "real" vs. non "real" tickets. A ticket is a ticket. Doesn't matter where it comes from. May or may not affect your insurance but you still did something wrong and got a ticket for it.

As for me. I got one many years ago for improper muffler. :( Paid the ticket, tore off the rusty muffler and bought a new one all in the same day.

Which means you've been lucky or you don't have a driver's license yet. :P

Yeah... Umm... I have had a few tickets in my day (licenced since 1987)... Being a young Tow Truck Driver did not help me much, and a couple things I should not have done while I was a young Volunteer Firefighter... :oops:

BUT that's all in the past now, I have been clean for about 5 years now! :thumbsup:

I have the utmost faith in the Albrtan police they will ensure you are held accountable for your self admitted erratic driving...unfortunately it can't happen until after you hit someone ;)

It's not my fault the only affordable cars for us teenagers in the early 80's were tar-rippin' muscle cars left over from the 60's... hence 20 tickets (+/-)... but beat some in court. Not ONE violation negatively affected another driver (no accidents) so in my opinion, I have a clean record. :angel:

Who would you rather ride with: the nice lady next door who only has one ticket her whole life (but earned it by causing a 10-car pileup), or me with my trunk-load of tickets but zero accidents?

I don't think you can catagorize driver skill/risk simply by asking how many tickets they've had. You should be asking how many accidents they've caused.

2 hta.

both received over 12 years ago within a 6 month time span.

1 for 80km/h in a 60 km/h zone
1 for fail to stop stop sign.

lesson learned.
