Pleasant surprise

I got a ticket last year for failure to control vehicle. Had to renew my license. I was surprised when I only had to take a vision test!!! I was fully expecting to have to take both D and M tests.

I didn't know you could get a ticket for that.

I guess I understand the ticket, it just seems like salt in the wound.

no, I had an accident when I met Ken and another with a ticket 2 summers ago. I've also had tickets when I was 16 and 18. I don't believe any moving violations were convictions though. I was given supervision and driving school.

he didn't want to. I hit a tree that belonged to my homeowners association on a saturday. I called my insurance company and let them know right away but drove the car home. I was going to call my association monday morning to notify them my insurance co was taking care of it. Darn groundskeeper wanted overtime on sunday and saw the tree. He called the cops and followed the trail of rubber to my house. They knocked on the door sunday morning. Cop was cool but groundskeeper was a prick and wanted me charged with leaving the seen. I guess people hit trees before in my neighborhood and don't report it so he was mad. I think the cop gave me a ticket to shut him up.
