Imagine, I get stopped today on Mountain View Avenue doing 75kmh in a 50kmh zone. And I wasn’t going to drive that way but my passenger, who shall remain nameless, suggested that I drive that way.
So now I have find J$5,000 to pay by 13th May.
I was pissed. This is the second time I have got a ticket in my life. The first one, I gave it to somebody who knew somebody and it disappeared. The fine is bad and not too bad, but to have 2 points added to my licence, means there is now a blemish on my so far perfect record!
The policeman say come to court if I want to contest the ticket. How ah going to contest it? Me never did look pon di speedometer. And in this new Volvo, you only have to press your foot down a likkle and it gone up to 80kmh just like that.
After the ticket, I drove at what I thought was a slow speed, looked on the speedometer and it was saying 60!
How does the bun come in? Comfort food for this distressing, life changing event!
