Today, I got a speeding ticket. My speedometer got busted a few weeks back, rendering it useless. My father, a former mechanic, decided it's not worth the trouble of going in and fixing it. "Just keep with traffic when you're on the highway; you'll be fine." This $150 fee says otherwise. FML

What? Really? His driving with a flipping broken speedometer, then gets pulled over for speeding? It's not like he was even planning on getting it fixed, arrogance and ignorance isn't an excuse to break the law.

No, that's not a valid fix; it's illegal to drive without a working speedometer, as it is considered part of the vehicles safety equipment.

YDI for not A) Asking your dad to fix it, B) Getting it fixed by someone else, or C) Fixing it yourself.
