{June 10, 2016}   I got a what?!

It’s been about six years, I think…How did this happen?

I’ve been so good, keeping my lead foot in check. I use cruise control, I check the speed limits, go slow in neighborhoods. Yesterday, apparently, nothing worked.

I was stuck in traffic and when it finally started to clear and we were moving, all of a sudden, I was flying. I was using Waze, but we weren’t communicating very well apparently and I didn’t see the cop until it was too late.

Just as I looked at the speedometer and started to slow down, he saw me and the blue lights came on.

I was calm, admitted to what I did, chatted with him for a minute and he dropped me from 50 to 45 in a 25, this took the ticket down from $290 to $120. I’m ok with that, it was my fault and I shouldn’t have been speeding.

And it’s been a long time since it’s happened, I am happy to say. And I’m hoping it’s going to be a long, long, long, long….time before it happens again.
