The Best Speeding Ticket Excuses Include...

Which ones have you tried to use? Did it work?

These won’t work if you’re doing 110 when the speed limit is 55.  But if you ever get pulled over, remember this list . . .

An annual survey asks people if they’ve ever gotten out of a speeding ticket, and how they did it.  And the strategy that works best is . . . just playing dumb.  Here are the ten excuses with the highest success rates . . .

1.  “I didn’t know I was speeding.”  It works 26% of the time.

2.  “There’s a medical emergency,” 25%.

3.  “Everyone else was going the same speed,” 22%.

4.  “I’m late for work,” 21%.

5.  “I have to use the bathroom,” 20%.

6.  “I’m late for an interview,” 16%.

7.  “I’m late to pick up or drop off my kid,” 15%.

8.  “I didn’t see the speed limit sign,” 14%.

9.  “I’m late for court,” 13%.

10.  “I’m late for a doctor’s appointment,” 13%.  Just asking for a warning might work too.  Almost half of people who’ve done it said it’s worked before.
