  1. I got pulled over by a state trooper while on my way to pay for classes this morning.

    He asked me who legally owned my car. I honestly wasn't sure, but I thought it was my dad. I used to own my car when I lived at the house, but it was a trash heap that was always causing both of us trouble and one day I came out to find it had been replaced and somehow it never got discussed, so I just went on driving the new one.

    Anyway, the guy tells me, with no lack of a compulsive superiority complex, that neither of us own the car and spends 10 minutes going through all my IDs and insurance and registration and a list of questions about where I was born and grew up etc. before letting me go and telling me to get the car in my or my dad's name if I wanted to stop getting pulled over because the car's on some kind of list that he didn't specify.

    It already WAS in our name and we'd been paying insurance/license plate fees and all that for like 5 years, so I have no idea what this is all about. At least he didn't seem to notice I never went to traffic school when I got my last speeding ticket over a year ago.

      Thats a weird story.

      Could be a case of mistaken identity or something. I had that happen to a friend of mine a few years ago. He got pulled over and arrested and spent the night in a cell and had to have family come in and identify him before they let him go. He had all his ID on him, but in certain situations apparently, even that is not enough. He found out later that whoever he was mistaken for had done something pretty serious.

      I wonder what this 'list' is.

      So in the States you gotta go to to driving school if you get a speeding fine?

      Well I was doing 90 in a 55 zone, on the tickets they have something like 5-10 over, 10-25 over, 25+ over, most 5-10's are just a fee, I think 10-25 can be court appearance depending on the situation, and 25+ is mandatory court appearance and the officer usually shows up too.

      Not that I've gotten enough tickets to know for sure.

      I have no clue how it works in other states, but in Texas, if you go to Driver's Ed, you get the ticket expunged from your record (so your insurance doesn't go up, you don't have to tell a future employer about it if a job your applying for requires driving a company vehicle, etc).

      IIRC, you can only do it once every 2 years, though.
