Speeding Tickets In Washington D.C. With A Dose Of Humor!
Washington, D.C. – the city where you can get a speeding ticket just by looking at your car’s speedometer. But don’t worry, we’ve got some tips to help you avoid getting a ticket in our nation’s capital.
First of all, if you’re driving in D.C., you’d better have a GPS. Not because the roads are confusing (well, they are), but because the speed limits change more often than the weather in this town. One minute you’re driving along at 35 mph, and the next thing you know, you’re in a school zone going 15 mph. And if you miss one of those speed limit signs, you’re going to be seeing red and blue lights in your rearview mirror.
But let’s say you do get pulled over. Don’t panic – you’re not alone. In fact, getting a ticket in D.C. is practically a rite of passage for locals and tourists alike. So, here are a few things you can do to make the experience a little more pleasant:
- Be polite to the officer. Sure, you might be cursing under your breath, but don’t take it out on the cop. They’re just doing their job, and they don’t want to deal with an angry driver any more than you want to get a ticket.
- Be honest. If you were speeding, admit it. Trying to argue your way out of a ticket is like trying to convince your boss that you really did get stuck in traffic on the way to work – it’s not going to work.
- Beg. Okay, we’re kidding (sort of). But if you’ve got a good reason why you were speeding – like you were rushing to the hospital to see your sick grandma – go ahead and plead your case. It probably won’t get you out of the ticket, but at least the officer will know you’re not just a reckless driver.
- Cry. Again, we’re joking (mostly). But if you’re really desperate, a few crocodile tears might just do the trick. Just don’t overdo it – you don’t want to end up on one of those “World’s Dumbest Criminals” shows.
And there you have it – our guide to getting pulled over in D.C. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
