Today, I lost control of my vehicle while driving. The car went off the road, rolled over, and ended up being totaled. The policeman asked me if I was alright and I said I was. He seemed relieved at my answer. Then he handed me a $300 ticket for failing to maintain my lane. FML

Same thing happened to me, OP. I lost control of my car from no fault of my own, bounced off a guardrail, shot across 3 lanes of highway, missed everyone else on the road, and hit the other guardrail. I was fine, missed everyone else on the road, but totaled my car. I called the highway patrol to report the accident, and when the cop showed up, he wrote me a $600 ticket for "speed too fast for conditions"...I asked how he was going to write me a ticket for something he wasn't there to witness and he just stared at me. Fought the ticket and won, I suggest you look into fighting it.

Holy shit Zeb, you win the ultimate Grammar Nazi prize of the day for that one.

#10, that would be totally excusable.

the fact that op "lost control" and did not write a reason means its probably op's fault.

well technically you did do a barrel he has a fair point :D

Even after everything, be glad you're still alive! :) Money is just that, and worth much less. Move on after this and enjoy your life! :D

Police suck? He was doing his job. OP admitted that s/he lost control of the car, and these days the most likely culprits are driving while drunk or distracted. My bet would be either talking on the phone or texting. I would guess that if it had been a deer or something, OP would have mentioned it. So OP deserved it. It isn't the cop's fault OP can't drive. Don't be an idiot.

I was laughing myself when I posted it, but hey, it's a French site, so you'd better not screw up a French word!

Obviously you are right, because when you are guessing, it can't NOT be right, right? Yeah, that's what I though. Learn to come up with some valid arguments before throwing around conclusions about whether someone 'deserves' an accident+fine or not.

That sucks, but at least you're alive. Were there hazardous road conditions? If not blame wildlife and fight the ticket, unless you were goin' 30+ over the speed limit and it was your fault, then go back to bein' happy your alive.

seriously?! your reccomendation is to go to court and commit a FELONY to try and beat a traffic ticket?

Dude, talk about salt in the wound. Did the cop kick you in the nuts afterwards too?
