The Two-Fer Post

The inevitable has happened (and only 5 months into licensed drivership)... The Eldest got his first speeding citation today while driving the Volvo. To be fair, he was driving down a very steep (very long) hill where the speed limit is only 25. I've had experience with this particular hill. I know for a fact that the only way to keep your speed under 25 is to stand on your brake pedal. Obviously, he was not standing on the brake pedal...

So the question of the day is this: Was I just looking for trouble when I handed him the keys to that awesome machine of powerfulness? Let's recall that it's the exact same vehicle that Edward Cullen drives in the Twilight books (and it's way awesome-r than the car they used in the movie...). Yea, I shoulda known it was gonna be reason for harassment...

The Eldest's Version:

*sigh* OK... let me start by saying Edward is a dork. I love his choice in cars... but Alice's 911 turbo is just hot.

This fine evening, after freezing my toes, fingers, rear, and brain while sledding, I was headed off to get dinner with a friend. I just happened to be driving 9 MPH over the posted limit that I had always thought was 35.... I got a ticket for going 34 in a 25. But that wasn't the worst of it, do any of you lovely readers know "Killer's Hill?" You turn south at the light in front of Micron. THIS HILL IS IMPOSSIBLE!!!!!

First, this cop wasn't even behind me. He passed me going the other way, then took the lovely opportunity I gave him to turn around and catch up to me 3 minutes later. For all I know, he might have tagged someone else!

And so we see that Lehi cops are stiff (and BTW, Alpine cops are just bored out of their skulls).
So, don't speed... it's naughty, and I officially hate Lehi. My hometown is better. ^.^

I know that hill. You got robbed! No one can go down that hill at 25. Welcome to the busted speeder's club.

My husband just got his second speeding ticket in a month last night. He tried to blame it on his new car, but it is just a Camery. I guess our insurance may go up. Can I put him in a time out?

You can put a hubby in time out for speeding. But then you can't ask him to pick up the kids or run errands--so I don't recommend it.

Sorry about the insurance premium spike! I'm sending The Boy to traffic school (and making him pay for it!).

After so many ticket sin my teen years my dad cut the toe out of a pair of old tennis shoes and tied helium balloons to my toes hoping I would slow down.
