    You see, in Saskatchewan speeding tickets don't count towards your safe driving points unless it's for dangerous driving. They only count towards your drivers license points.

        Well I don't know how big your town/city is. But I live in a town that less then 20,000 populated, and go to school the size of under 10,000. I know every speed zone in both towns and there hours apart. I for one read the signs that are on the right side of the road. These little signs tells me to increase my speed limit or decrease my speed limit. YOU SHOULD TRY IT. SOMETIME. I have been driving for 6 years, and NEVER got a speeding ticket, only warnings. Before you asks, that is 2 warnings. Along with a fix it ticket. My tail lights were out due to a fuse.

        You may not tell your customer how to get out of speeding tickets, but I have read your post on here. And you do it on here. So what is the difference. The only difference is you didn't write the ticket, some other great officer did. Why give the customer any more advice on how to fight a ticket.

I have a hard time giving up on things I want and I'm not about to give up on this before I even try. Don't tell me that I have no chance because I have a bad driving record and then tell someone else with misdemeanors, DUI's, "drug experimentation (the biggest load of crap I've ever heard of)," etc. that they still have a chance in law enforcement because these things happened a long time ago. Bear in mind, I still have at least 4 to 5 years before I'm ready to apply to the RCMP.
            it is not just your driving record that will hurt you, it is your attitude, your maturity level (lack of), and so on. youre 20 right, you should like a 16 yr old when i read your post.

                    In the form of speeding dangerous driving is 50 km over the posted speed.


                    Why is everyone picking on me all of a sudden? You don't need to be a smart-*** about everything I say.

                    I know the speed limits here too. I never said I didn't. Rather than staring at my speedometer, I'm sweeping the area with my eyes looking for any possible hazards (ie: kids running around, opening car doors, jaywalkers, pedestrians) and sometimes my car just accelerates slowly to above the speed limit and I don't notice it until I got flashing lights behind me.

                    • I guess I didn't think I was being a smart *** about it. But I will say people aren't going to think highly of you when you act like violations are no big deal. Granted like you have said speeding isn't murder, but you lack of remorse for doing it would lead a person to think you don't respect laws that you one day hope to enforce. I guess my line of thinking is you lead by example. So how many speeding tickets do you have? In a past post you said you had 6 speeding tickets.

                        What kind of car do you have. I have a 2000 car, with a 4 cylinder in it. I have to give my car a little bit of time to get up to a decent speed.

                          It's still six. I'm a big believer in police discretion rather than hacking out tickets. For some people tickets don't do much, but a good lecture will do wonders. That's what did it to me. Nothing like an 11 minute guilt trip to make you stop speeding. Not to mention I can't really afford a speeding ticket now that they raised the price of them. Before the average price of a ticket for me was $125. Now it would be somewhere around $180.

                            I have a 1990 six cylinder 3.8 L engine. It doesn't take much to get speed with it.
