    got my first ticket...

    Got my first ticket this weekend. I'm 18 and I feel victimized. Lol but really, I got a ticket for turning right at a red light that had sign that said no turn on red. I did see the sign and neither did my passenger. There was 1 sign posted on my side of the intersection but it wasn't on the street light pole so I didn't see it. There was no sign on the opposite side of the intersection.

    Just a little rant as I'm bummed out. $300 and traffic school. But luckily the cop opted to not ticket me for having no front license plate which I'm thankful for!

    Anyways if anyone would like to share a story about getting a ticket please do so, so that I feel better about myself and can laugh at you

    I've actually had several over the years, but none that I've had to pay out for. Perks of being friends with your local county attorney.

    About the only defense you might have is to research the law in your state regarding the requirements for such signage. Maybe it's improperly marked or the location of the sign might not meet the legal requirements. If it is improperly marked, take some photographs and go to court and plead not guilty.

    Here's an example of what I'm talking about: In CA all handicap parking spaces must be marked with the typical markings on the ground and a sign directly in front of the handicap space. I see many handicap spaces without the sign in front. If you get a ticket for parking in such a space you can beat it in court because the space was not properly marked in accordance with the law.

    And by the way... I just got a ticket yesterday (Sunday) too!. Far from my first though.

    I'm 43 now and have had plenty in the past...mostly speeding. The last speeding ticket I ever got was when you were 6 (the day after my daughter was born and I was headed back up to the hospital) Most recent ticket for me was tint, it used to be a repair and prove ticket but not anymore :0(

    There's no right turns on red at all, where I live. The only other city I know of in North America where you can't make a right on red is NYC. Honestly, it's a huge PITA that I can turn right on red off the island of Montreal but not on the island (just like Manhattan).

    I got stopped just this morning for passing cars turning left while in the right lane (cop tried to say I was passing people on the right). Got out of the ticket luckily.

    I got two holes in my front bumper but it looks better than a license plate at least
