the recent story of the UPSer getting killed fleeing the police. got me thinking about all the traffic stops I have had over the years. maybe 50 % resulted in tickets . back in the 70's and 80's I got mostly warnings. since then it has been tougher. but in 25 years , in my personal vehicle, I have been stopped 5 times and each time I got off with a warning. I think it was because I was in my UPS uniform. I was honest and told the officer I had just got off from work from UPS and they let me go. other times I have gotten off is because I made the officer laugh. but still have received tickets about half the time. maybe 3-4 in 25 years. so I was wondering if any of you have ever gotten out of a ticket and what do you think was the reason why?
