THINGS MY DAD HAS SAID TO TRY TO GET OUT OF A TICKET
because it's too easy to just go the speed limit.
- •"There's no one else on the road!"Driving through rural Illinois on our way to a ski trip, my dad gets pulled over for speeding by a state trooper. I am 12 years old in the backseat, listening to Britney Spears on my discman. The state trooper's response was "that doesn't matter, sir."
- •"We woke the young one up for the festivities!"Another ski trip, this time in Colorado. I am 16 and asleep in the backseat. While they did indeed wake me up, I don't think that fact or calling the event "festivities" really helped as my dad was, indeed, issued a speeding ticket.
