Novel Ways To Avoid A Speeding Ticket

I recently received a copy of “Consider It Done” by Julie Subotky, a super bright colleague of mine from the Entrepreneurs’ Organization. This fascinating book shares 228 tricks to accomplish various tasks including how to cut a long line, how to get back a lost wallet and how to get an engagement ring inside a Fortune cookie.

I therefore was curious to see what Julie wrote about how to get out of a speeding ticket. First, she aencourages woman to flirt (but, of course, only if the police officer is a male).

Next, she explained that, if flirting isn’t going to work, be original. Police officers have heard so many excuses so your shtick better be good. She recounts how a friend got out of a speeding ticket from a Trekkie fan/police officer by grabbing his cell phone and saying “Beam me up Scottie”.

But Julie’s last suggestion, for me, was the most intriguing. She suggests using reverse psychology and actually ask for the speeding ticket saying something like “I know, you have to give me a ticket now, I was speeding”. Based on the idea that people (especially police officers) do not like to be told what to do, asking for the ticket could likely get the officer to actually want to NOT give you a ticket.

Have you ever gotten out of a traffic ticket? Please share you stories here.

    I was charged with speeding on the Belt Parkway, w/b from the Flatbush Av entrance ramp to the gas station. The car was a 1950 Dodge with “Fluid Drive.” It had no pickup, so I suggested that the judge should attempt to go from 0 to 50 mph in the claimed distance.

    Another time, in a red light case, an officer who had previously given me a summons was in court on another matter. He approached me and we spoke a bit. He then spoke to the officer who had given me the summons. I don’t know what was said, but the officer said that he couldn’t recall writing the ticket.

    And when I get a parking ticket in Cedarhurst, I moved to summon the mayor on a charge of violating VTL section 1183 and the judge tells me to get out of town and I tell him to quit or go to jail for conspiracy to commit grand larceny.
