Funny you should mention zombie attacks... The reason I was late was because I slept through my alarm after a particularly intense, long weekend, zombie survival prep camp (basically a lot of running in between short classes on survival skills for three days). I know I shouldn't have been speeding, but it was important enough that the $135 would have been worth paying... y'know, if they hadn't forgotten to tell me it was cancelled...

What?? The bright side is they didn't have to look bad by showing up 20 min late with an excuse to a job interview. No one wants to hire someone that can't even make it to the interview on time. OP - Leave early when it's rescheduled, and don't speed.

#8 -I'm sorry, how fast do you think I was driving? Going 10km over the speed limit is far from enough to lose my license, but it is enough to shave 5 minutes off the drive... and of course get a $135 ticket. I was expecting a lot of YDI for speeding, but I *am* a little annoyed by how many people are getting mad at me for "endangering my own life and those of everyone else on the road" (as #31 put it) when they don't know how much over the speed limit I was going, or what that made my speed (I was only going 50km/hr, by the way), or any of the other variables to determine whether I was actually driving dangerously. Y'know, things like how many other drivers were sharing the road with me, their relative speeds, the presence of pedestrians, the road conditions, and the general weather. Don't assume I'm a bad driver because I was speeding this one time, and don't point fingers unless you can honestly say you've never sped in your life. And haha :) #34; I agree with that.

lilhellian, if you get too many dermet points in a certain span of time, yes, you can lose your licence. and for up to 2 years if you dont hand it over right away.

So you were speeding in a 40 km/h (25 mph) zone? That's means you were speeding on a road with intersections, cyclists and pedestrians. It would be safer to drive 50 km/h over the speed limit on the highway.

43 - If you speed, and a cop tickets you for it, then yea, its your own fault, and YDI. Speed all you want, I know I do, but don't bitch if you get a ticket because of it.
