Default First Ticket in the New Ranger.

I was on my way to school as I have an early class that starts at 7 am on Mondays and Wednesdays. And for whatever reason, October 18th was the day that some diabolical entity decided I should have my first encounter with the law while driving.

And here's where the story takes a turn for the worse. Get out your violins. The car that I happened to cut off was a cop, and unfortunately for me, I just got my Ranger about a week and half ago. I forgot that I had just took my temporary registration out two nights before. He writes me up for unsafe lane change, overtaking a vehicle, and no insurance. Good doing business with you officer, I apologize for 'almost killing you' in your words.

Pfft. Sorry everyone, my rant's over.

Nah, I know the cops aren't the bad guys here. And I'm the one at fault.

But being the typical broke college student, this shit sucks hard. Haha. Looks like those rims and tires are going to have to wait a little while longer.

ask if they can downgrade it, or combine them for a lesser fine if you plead guilty. Usually that can be done

That sucks man... can't you get at least the insurance one dropped by proving you have it?

I got pulled over in my truck right after I got it and had just put the plates on but didn't have registration in the truck... that was a fun one to explain...

plead guilty to the unsafe lane change and take in your insurance card as proof you were insured, it just wasnt with you...they usually let you slide the first couple times with that. Otherwise, the insurance ticket is going to rape your wallet.
