    My son got nailed going 49 in a 25mph zone.To avoid the points NJ allows you to play lets make a deal;plead to operating vehicle in unsafe manner,pay $439 and you get no points.While the fine is expensive,it actually saves you a lot because those 4 points would make your insurance rates go up for 3 years.You can only plead guilty to unsafe driving twice in a 5 year period,after that you're screwed.

    HAHA, I addition to owning a landscaping co. i want to be A Police officer. or a FIre FIGHter. I thought id share this with you, I think someone above said they are now a cop, let me know what you think. MY mother drives a 2004 acura tsx. It is a front wheel drive vehicle, My brother took it to a friends house to do an oil change and normal maintnence, (i didnt have the tools at this time). After they were done he was on the way home and he turnd right on the road. there is a light two blocks to the left. He gets pulled over after about 6 seconds of being on that road. He asks why hes being pulled over and the cop tells him he saw him burn out his rear tires at the traffic light. He politly tries to explain that it is a front wheel drive vehicle making it impossible to burn out the rear tires. he goes back, runs his license and all and come back and says im issueing you a written warning. He politly asks for hat and he tells him reckless driving and endangering the public. He kept his mouth shut but got home, and the next day he went and talked to the cheif of police. the cheif informed him hes getting fired. apparently this is not his first complaint he tried to tell a guy with a mustang that his front tires were burning out off the line and some other stuff, nneedless to say we went to the movies last night and hes working as a security gaurd at the theriter.

    Me too...I actually got stopped about a month ago (in one of the fully lettered trucks) by one of the local highway patrol Lts on my way to work at the PD. He walked up and just started laughing when he saw me in uniform.

    That's Louisiana for you!

    I dont mind you being a cop since your my crescent city connection. Lol.

    Today I pulled out on a country highway and a started to get up to the speed limit of 55 when a white Malibu comes riding my tail. I started to speed up and it still started to pass me so I floored it. At about almost 70 I heard sirens. That malibu was an unmarked cop. Needless to say i let him pass.

    Everything shows up to an insurance company. I called a few times for quotes and i tell them that i have no points on my license etc. They tell me, although you dont show that you dont have any points, they told me about my seatbelt tickets and a few of those tickets that were $$ but no points.

    1. I have been driving for 26 years.
    2. I have had no accidents and no citations in the past 10 years.
    3. I had to learn this one the hard way but now you know the reason why.

    You better believe it.

    I understand it this way: "policy activity can increase premium."
    So it doesn't really matter if it did or not, because sooner or later, it will.

    Luckily it didnt. The true test will be to see how much my quote will be for my 2011 infiniti that i ordered. I mean its not terrible, and they don't see you as a risk if you have a seatbelt ticket here and there, but it still shows up. Granted that i live in NJ, my quote may seem reasonable but in your statet it may be half that amount.
