      Not a ticket, but I got a verbal warning for parking in a parking lot. The cop told me my friend and I were acting "suspicious" cuz my car was the only one in the parking lot. We come outside with some stuff we bought, get in the car, and the cop follows us. He pulls me over right at my house. After showing him that we were there for a legitimate reason, he decided to pull out the "your license plate lights were out."

      VA Highway patrol or whatever they are called is rediculous. I drive from GA to DE straight shot up 95 a few times a year. Last summer in a stretch of 95 in south va that is a 70 mph zone i was doing about 80. cop pulled me over and gave me a ticket for 81 in a 70. i was following the flow of traffic, but 81 in a 70??? redic. was about $250...

      I guess it also didn't help that i slammed on my brakes because i was pissed for getting pulled over for 80 IN A 70... =/

      1st - 94 Buick Skylark Don't remember what it was, just remember I was late
      2nd - 94 buick skylark Red light cam
      3rd - 91 300zx 47 in a 35...$324 Monterey, CA
      4th - 11 GTI 81 in a 70

      Have my N which makes me put on a ugly N sign on the back of my car, and cannot travel with more then one other person unless they are immediate family. Oh, and it gives cops a good reason to pull me over.

      4 tickets.

      #1 parking ticket at Queen Elizibeth park here at 1am... No sign saying you need to pay... nothing...
      80$

      #2 Hitting a car at 5km/h...... 250$ so she could pay to get her rear valence repainted. It was a Vw as well....

      #3 Roadblock, got caught with 2 extra people in my car, and my friend sacrificed his joint so I would not get searched and have a charge for possession. 380$

      #4 Speeding, 1am, doing 80km/h in a 50km/h zone. Not a living soul was on the road and a cop just happened to turn a corner... I slowed down, pulled me over, had 5 joints on me..., almost ticketed for possession, said they were too lazy to write a ticket, noticed when they handed me back the bag, there were 4 joints in there...

      When they let me go, the took the first left and parked behind a gas station.
      180$




      Get a message in the mail a month later, lose my license for 2 months, now I have 2 1/2 weeks left till I get it back, and have to pay 400$ to get it back.

      Grand total of $1300

      old car, 64 ford falcon v8 open exhaust
      1st ticket: 55 in a 40, mercedes truck passing me, blocking the cops view of me, didnt get the ticket
      2nd ticket: 82 in a 40 delivering pizza for work. he said if i had the sign on top, he wouldnt have rolled me.
      3rd ticket: headlights not on, sun was still halfway out

      jetta
      4th ticket: 68 in a 60, driving gf to work...already late before the cop got me like really, 8mph?? currently losing my license for this.. missed court date due to a job interview. losing license for a failure to appear. paying the ticket in payments, but im doing traffic school and they consider it a not guilty plea, so the failure to appear doesnt dropt till the ticket is paid in full. fu.ck the system. it sucks

      been pulled over many, many more times, cuffed and searched, car searched, even did a sobriety test, they always let me go. even got compliments on the car, never ticketed for tint, tinted tails, no plates, riding too low cuz of weight, 7 people in the car, with no back seat. gotta love La Habra cops. pulled me over like 20 times and gotten away. tickets were all in Brea and fullerton. bitch cops

      1. In my old subi i got a careless driving ticket for doing donuts in my high school soccer field back when i was a stupid teenager

      2 and 3. On my crotch rocket, tuning from the wrong lane (lanes weren't marked so) and the cop said my plate was dirty and couldn't read it across the intersection (which is freaking because motorcycle plates are like the size of your hand!)

      No tickets in my GLI surprisingly. Driven across the country 2 times and nothing (knock on wood)

      I had too many to count, but my funniest one was back in my college days.

      I just completed my last final exam, and was leaving school around 10pm. The parking lot was empty and i was driving my red Geo Metro. I blew by a stop sign as i was turning and did not realize it. I get pulled over by "what i thought were Renta-Cops" in the parking lot. I proceeded to get out until the guy jumped out from behind the door and whipped out his gun and pointed it at me yelling "Get back in the F***in car", lol.

      Needles to say it was a nice $200 ticket.

      received a triple ticket 3 years ago when i was 16. 55 in a 30, past legal curfew, and illegally had passengers in the car. It amounted to a $500 ticket, but went to court a week later and got it down to $100

      7km/h over (67 in a 60) Yup thats 4mp/h over = $110 and 1 point

      Turning over double lines on a straight road with no traffic = $300 and 3 points

      Thats lost me my full license for a year - cant drive after 11pm

      #2.) My gf's stepdad was pulled over today for running a green light at a right turn signal. Yes, GREEN. The cop pulled us over in my driveway. I didn't know he pulled us over and I went to get out and go inside my house. He pulled out his gun and told me to get back in the car.

      So guys... What's the most memorable ticket you've gotten in your MKIV? List the wierdest, harshest, or funniest you've got out there.
      im sorry but there is no friggin way.. that would be grossly unacceptable.... and i would have continued right into my house

      Got one on the 4th of July a couple of years ago. Cop was fresh out of the academy and on a power trip. I was passing two cars legally on a country road in the middle of no where. $320 and he told me he'd raise it if I wanted to appeal it. Had a ****ty night at the fireworks, and on the way back, guess who's in the campground.... Mr Personality. Pulls me over again and asks me if I wanted another ticket because the speed limit in the campground is 5mph. I kindly told him I can't do 5, that I can do 7 before I stall out and the reason why you though I was going so fast is because my engine RPMs were high for first gear rolling down the hill.

      He didn't like any of that. The court date was set for December 23rd 2011. I got a call on the 21st saying "you're all set, you don't need to show up. It was thrown out before it even made it to court."

      Never heard of that, but lucked out because we had a blizzard that week and it would of taken me 4 hours to get there and 4 hours to get home.


      Had a $200 recently for 60 in a 40. Was total bull****, (seriously), but fought it and got it reduced to $100.
