I don't need to take a break. ;-) I am not angry. I don't drive angry -)

Just upset with the value I had to pay.

I had not even one single ticket in 8 years here neither in my entire life in the U.S. My drivers license there says: example driver on it.

That is the reason it is so frustrating.

I see here people scared if they will receive a ticket because they did cross a red light or were speeding. This was not my case.
I posit that, perhaps similar to lying albeit to a much lesser extent, everybody inluding drivers breaks the rules, their contractual duties, multiple times a week if not daily (who of you is on here during work hours?). The vast majority goes unnoticed, very few are actually fined.

That's why minor offenses aren't registered - it's not worth the bother.

Re: Running red light ticket - Police Mistake

Same thing happened to me...I just went down town Zurich at the police station and explained that I was actually at home at that time. The lady was very nice...went to the computer and said that they have already fixed the mistake and I was going to get a letter with an apology. Anyway...she apologized...end of story

For somebody who's been to "Porsche Sport Driving School, on more than one occasion, you seem to have a lot of issues, mostly around money from your posting history.......

Or was it the Porsche Pedal Car Driving School ?
Perhaps "Porsche" as opposed to "Dead common"?

I've seen Porsch drive. He can't charge that much for lessons.

Re: Running red light ticket - Police Mistake

Not that I need to give an explanation but as a polite person I will.

Your pre conception of a Porsche driving school is incorrect. You just need to be a member of the school, you don't need to pay a lot not alone have a Porsche.
You can bring a Ford Pinto along if you want.

I was there because a drunk driver almost killed me in an accident.
But maybe you did not read that as you were too quirky to judge.

With all due respect, I don't have financial issues and quite frankly speaking, people like you, make me read this forum less and less.

The times I posted here were times where I needed help.
I would appreciate if people like you would not bother to comment with stupid, mean comments and false accusations.

Your life must pretty damn horrible.

Re: Running red light ticket - Police Mistake

You know what, whatever.

If a moderator is around, please feel free to delete all my posts and enquiries.

I don't need this lack of disrespect. People go through good and difficult financial times in life.
By no means one should be judged by strangers for that, let alone humiliated in a public forum.

Thank you for the ones who really helped.

ooooOOOOOOooooh!

Best flounce we've had in weeks.

What did you honestly expect? As it happens I think you got off quite lightly here, unlike your fine. And your rep's only just in the red, even.

Come on man, develop a thicker hide. The forum is full of people who will try and bait you, dig holes in stories, basically anything they can to get under your skin. Reacting in this way to the opinions of a group of anonymous strangers who by rights you shouldn't give two hoots about is just a little silly. Rise above it and just ignore the posts you don't like.

And grammatical crimes. And colour blindness (although, to be fair, that's genetic and no fault of the mod - why do they use red and green? It's just asking for trouble).

Re: Running red light ticket - Police Mistake

Well, when you get accused of cyber bullying for using the word popcorn, "regardless of rights or wrongs." .......
On an unrelated note, search the whole forum for the word popcorn., there has been a cleansing.....

Ah.
It all becomes clear. When I deleted a whole bunch of posts on one thread, I used a single text to explain, without thinking that while many of the posts were simply replies to the 'bullying' ones it may not have been clear to all concerned.
