I Really Needed That Ticket

I was just driving along, minding my own business, when the annoying sound of sirens cut through my favorite song on the radio. I tried to drown it out by turning the music up louder to no avail. The sirens were just getting louder and louder. This officer would not give up! What is wrong with this guy? After some serious thought, I decided perhaps I should pull over and see why he was so intent on annoying me. As soon as I rolled my window down, he was standing there acting all impatient. “Do you know why I pulled you over?” That is what he said to me. Not even a, “Hello” or a “Hi, how are you doing”. How utterly rude! Nevertheless, I handed him my license and registration that he insisted upon seeing, only to have him hand me back a ticket. Why thank you, Officer! I really needed that ticket! The ticket said that I was going eighty in a seventy mile an hour zone. That is completely ridiculous! I know I was going at least ninety! I would never go so slow. I was in a hurry because my turtle was lonely and I had to get home to him! Moreover, the officer said that my driving was dangerous! Can you imagine such a thing?! He said that speeding is one of the most prevalent factors contributing to traffic crashes. Then he said that in 2012, speeding was a contributing factor in 30 percent of all fatal crashes, and 10,219 lives were lost in speeding-related crashes (Transportation, 2014). How absurd! I would never get into an accident! The three last year simply do not count
