I Got A Ticket...

Happy Thursday Young & Free Michigan. 

Today I had to go to court. Why you ask, well on Mother's day I was pulled over and got a ticket for speeding.(Insert pouting face.)  In my defense I didn't realize I was speeding. There are times when you KNOW you are speeding. This wasn't one of those times.

Because of my good driving record, I was told if I go to court I may get the chance to pay the fee without receiving any points being added to my license. It was my first time going to court and I was a little nervous. The experience was nothing like I expected it to be. I got there early so it didn't take me long, but it was a tad painful because I had to pay a hefty $165! OUCH! 

Going 5 over the speed limit cost me $125 and to get no points on my license cost me another $40!

My tip today is DON'T SPEED! It's not worth it. I could have done a lot with $165, paid bills, bought food, built my savings account,  but instead I had to pay up for my ticket. 

Keeping it Fresh, Young & Free,
