Americocentric thred kan, l'Orphee?

It only applies for ex-pats. Amra jara deshe thaki we are 2 kl to drv. We get moved around by Shofar. And even if we get "pulled over" by Dhaka's finest, we play: Jano amar baap ke? card. If anything, there is always a venal Plan C option.

Driving record. deshe ek golir theke arek goli te jaitei gari gosha khaite khaite shesh aar bileti babu driving record shikahy. Jottoshob. :p

I got my first speeding tickets 1 week after I got my first car. Was doing 50+ on 25, in front of the police station. There was a cop car parked up front, but they always have one there parked. This time there happen to be a police inside. Gave me $100 dollar ticket. I didn't want my parents to find out, so paid for it next day, didn't say a word. Week go by I get a letter from DMV telling me if I get one more speeding ticket within next 6 months they will suspend my license and have to take class only because I was still under 18 at the time. Oh and my parents found out, had to hear big lecture.

Since than I didn't get a ticket, until last month. Freaking NYC parking dude gave me a $60 bucks ticket. It wasn't my fault they had 2 signs one pointing arrow both ways, one pointing arrow one way. I tried to fight it but didn't work.

I got too many tickets, but my friends still say that I am a good driver, but here is my Proud history -

2001 - i was 18/19. Pulled over for speeding in Dallas. Didnt have license either, but had permit. Told i was new in USA for school, got away with it.
2002 - Pulled over in Springfield, MA for not having one of the headlight working. Again no license. Still the cop let me go with a cab, and let me tow the car to my apartment.
Got my license late 2002.

2004 to 2010 =
- got 5 to 6 tickets for speeding in Dallas. Did safety course, deferred with 3 months clean record, got 4 off my record.
- 2006, pulled over near Arizone/California border for speeding. 100 at 75limit......got a huge ticket. Paid.
- got pulled over twice for not wearing seat belt, got ticket, paid.
- got pulled over once for running red light, got ticket, fought, deferred, no record.
- 2004 had the only accident while delivering pizza, minor, no problem. Insurance took care.

NYC - Parking tickets. i got 3 parking tickets in nyc, its a crazy city for parking spaces.
I dont get where these cops come from. Like a quick bird, shits(tickets) on your car and gone.

I have been driving since I was 11 years old. I have too many parking tickets so lost count of that. I have a total of 10 moving violations 90% of which are speeding. I am one of the best drivers you will find, I am just unlucky when it comes to cops and speeding. I learned to drive in dhaka but all my traffic tickets have been in canada. I have a perfect record in dhaka :P:P

Ehhh, not too comfortable to divulge it here. Got a lot of ticekts, all infractions and all got swiped away some through bail or other through community service. ****, community service is haaard man. Heroin addicts and domestic bullies are there and here i am lumped with these because i can't pay 1000 for no registration, license or insurance. I once quipped: Motion for dismissal. 1000 dollar fine is unconstitutional as it is cruel and unusual punishment....boohooo...judges dont care. friggin kangaroo court
