I have had a bad run the pass couple of months.... 5 traffic tickets for various reasons. I started driving when I was 14. I got my permit at 15.5 and my license at 16. Over the years I've had a few (literally a few) tickets but nothing like this. Is it the Washington DC area? Everyone I know here has tickets- multiple tickets (speeding, parking, etc). While my friends in California rarely talk about their tickets. All the tickets are my fault and I will spend the next week and paycheck trying to clear my good name. From this day forward I promise to drive better and pay my tickets on TIME!!
