I’ve been driving since 1984. During that time I should have had at least two traffic tickets, one at the hand of a Delaware State Police officer and another at the hand of an Ocean City Police officer. I was blessed that they both had mercy on me, and they didn’t issue a ticket.
My driving story took a turn for the worse since I moved to Laurel. Since living in Laurel for six years, I’ve been issued three traffic violations, and all those violations were at the hands of the Laurel Police Department.
One ticket I got just happened tonight, and it was for failing to use a turn signal. Yes, I got ticketed for failing to signal.
One of those tickets was for a seatbelt violation. I have always thought that the seatbelt law and it’s enforcement was one of the dumbest things we inflict upon drivers (post). After getting the ticket, I found that I hate it even more.
Living in Laurel, Delaware has turned me into a lawbreaker! C’mon, laugh with me!
I’ve read somewhere that people end up in automobile accidents within a few miles of home. Maybe the tickets were a reminder to play it safe everywhere but especially near home.
