This one is probably a little more for the younger ones that have or are going through the graduated liscencing program but here's the story:
My bro, who still has his N on his liscence dispite driving for 5 years now (don't ask the reason why he hasn't gotten it off - because that another story), recently got a letter in the mail informing him that as of the receipt of the letter his liscence was official suspended for a period of one month.
The reason for the suspension as cited by the letter was due to two speeding tickets that he has received. Under the new Driver Improvement program these are the rules. But the stupid part of this is this:
1) The first ticket that he got was in August of 2002, on the Hope-Princeton going to Osoyoos, and the second was in 2004 same road, two years apart.
2) He has numerous friends that have in excess of 5-8 speeding tickets and have had nothing similar happen to them.
Why? Because even though like him they are still under the New Driver program they have disputed each and every speeding ticket.
So the moral of the story is....
Dispute your speeding ticket. Clog up the system. Don't own up to your mistakes and don't pay a fine.
Pay your speeding tickets. Obey the law. Play be the rules and get screwed by the system.
Just a piece of advice for all those out there in driver/rider land. I feel pretty stupid for having paid all those tickets over the year.
Hope you have never had similar experience, but if you have what did you do?
