on the other hand, I can not drive high, and don't think I would attempt to drive under any other type of drug. People who smoke a joint while driving amaze me because I get distracted way too easy and forget where the fuck I am.
hahah thats how i was this wednesday i had a blunt on the freeway and i had to keep airing my car cause i couldn't see in front of me
Dude they don't care if you are "shitfaced" or not. Don't drink and drive or one day you will pay for it imo
ya i know . but when your at a party somewhere around towm and it gets killed i gottat get myself home you know? i always chill in my car and gather my thoughts to prepare myself to not fuck up and look stupid
exactly i drink and drive but never when im shitfaced obviously that means i know my limits. feeling numb is not drunk its just that warmness IMO drunk to me is having trouble with regular activities like lighting a bowl, walking , and carrying on a conversation,, or my personal favorite tell " man i'm spinning"
Got pulled over tonight. Damn gps told me to go right down a one way and cops were right there. Scared shitless doing the under the influences tests because I was really high. I had a couple drinks earlier but nothing to get me worried. I passed the tests and everything was ok but that fucker still game me a ticket. You think I can fight the ticket in court? Blame it on my GPS?
Uh... is the ticket just for traveling the wrong way down a one-way? You could definitely fight a DUI if you passed the tests (including breathalyzer). If you went the wrong way down a one-way street and blame it on the GPS they'll say "OK fine, we'll cite you for reckless driving for not looking at the fucking road." You can't blame a ticket on GPS, ha.
Just don't fight the stupid traffic ticket. Here's what your options are:
Wait a week and see how many lawyers send a little pamphlet promising you for the cost of your ticket (plus another small court fee) they'll go to court and erase it for you. They will likely return innocence upon completion of a driver's ed course. Doing it yourself has a small chance you could get deferred adjudication so if you're feeling fight-the-power-y, go for it. If you have the money to cover the cost of the ticket + $50-$100, go for it. You'll be glad when you see nothing go up on your insurance later. This option is a bit more immediate with your "innocent" ruling.
You could try doing it yourself as well. Plead nolo contendere (or no contest)... DO NOT plead guilty or innocent and pay the initial fine issued in the ticket. The judge will probably request you take a defensive driving course (upon completion he'll rule innocent; you have about 2-3 months to finish a course, do an online one) or may even give you deferred adjudication if you have a pretty clean record. Deferred adjudication is just like "hey in the next 6 months let's see if he fucks up, if he doesn't we'll forget it." So don't fuck up in the next 6 months. I promise you paying the ticket fine up front and hopefully getting it erased from your insurance by taking a court-ordered driver's ed course or a deferred adjudication ending in an innocent ruling is MUCH cheaper in the long run. A one time fee is far better than paying for it every month on your insurance. You still pay for the ticket here, but save the lawyer fees and have to wait about 3-6 months before you know what's up. If you're into saving money and fighting the power, have at it.
Good luck! I probably deal with a ticket once a month because I drive everywhere and typically do it fast, so this isn't some copy / paste bullshit. I just got two tickets erased from two separate states. All traffic laws and the shitty municipal courts that handle their enforcement are the same... no offense to peace officers / city judges and their relatives.
damn if i got a ticket for every time i went the wrong way down a one way street . I would not have a licence.Gross were you in Poway at that monument in time because i've gotten a ticket for doing a u-turn when it was a no u-turn sign off poway scripps and pomeado(urgh i can't spell that street) and i swear the cop came out of nowhere.
Tommy, I will not fall prey to your intense need to be right. I'm simply not a fan of cops, and they better do their fucking job.
I wish teachers were held up to the same scrutiny. Instead many of them barely justify their salary and the whole country suffers.
At least I don't judge the entire profession based on the useless ones.
