The Best Speeding Ticket Excuses Include “I Didn’t Know I Was Speeding” and “I Have to Pee!”

These won’t work if you’re doing 110 when the speed limit is 55.  But if you ever get pulled over, remember this list . . .

An annual survey asks people if they’ve ever gotten out of a speeding ticket, and how they did it.  And the strategy that works best is . . . just playing dumb.  Here are the ten excuses with the highest success rates . . .

1.  “I didn’t know I was speeding.”  It works 26% of the time.

2.  “There’s a medical emergency,” 25%.

3.  “Everyone else was going the same speed,” 22%.

4.  “I’m late for work,” 21%.

5.  “I have to use the bathroom,” 20%.

6.  “I’m late for an interview,” 16%.

7.  “I’m late to pick up or drop off my kid,” 15%.

8.  “I didn’t see the speed limit sign,” 14%.

9.  “I’m late for court,” 13%.

10.  “I’m late for a doctor’s appointment,” 13%.  Just asking for a warning might work too.  Almost half of the people who’ve done it said it’s worked before.
