Top 7 Easiest Cities To Get Out of A Speeding Ticket

You have things to do. You are in a hurry. Go, go, go. Oops, here comes la policia. Looks like a ticket.

Well, if you live in one of the seven cities, you have a good chance of getting out of it. Here are the secrets to get out of tickets in each town.

Boston, MA

The key to get out of a ticket in Boston is to tell the police your brother works undercover in Braintree. If the officer asks you his name, say you don’t want to compromise his identity. This works 78 percent of the time.

Oklahoma City, OK

Oklahoma City police are notorious for letting people out of tickets if they give them a dozen Dunkin Donuts in specially marked boxes with the Thunder logo on top. This works 82 percent of the time.

Is this Canada’s worst driver?

This driver in Calgary needs some more training on how car steering works. They find it impossible to get out of this parking lot without smashing into a car.

Hey, I lived in Edmonton. I know it’s not easy driving in Canada. But sometimes you need to think out of the box. Go one way in order to turn around and go the other. Think of it as parking zen.

News reports said Calgary police had launched an investigation. Later they reported they had contacted the driver and the victims. Not much going on in Calgary?

Crazy People in LA: Gotta-Valet Gal

Gotta-Valet Gal valets her car everywhere she goes. I’m not talking someone that valet parks at Lakers games and clubs in Hollywood. I mean everywhere! Stopping by the supermarket for some gum? Valet park! Running to the pet store for some Alpo for Mr. Cribs? Valet! If they offered valet parking at McDonald’s, she would do it in a second.

Maybe it’s not Gotta-Valet Gal’s fault. Growing up, there was valet parking at her pre-school. Her own house had valet parking just for the valet parkers.
