- Home, where my life lies waiting, silently, for me.
Ran a red light and cost $150. They are 'punishment' lights and I thought I had time to get through on the orange, otherwise the light cycle was 7 minutes and I would have missed my exam.
I figured it was worth it at the time, and I was working so $150 wasnt much money

First fine in years was 8 days ago. Going 99 in an 80 zone, very rural road. Kicking myself cos I usually have the cruise control on! Didn't have anything planned for that $220 anyway
ETA - There was a religious debate on the radio at the time!

I have never had any fines or been pulled over.. I have been driving now for 4 years and have only ever encountered a RBT once
Im always driving! I suppose I'm just lucky lol.
DH on the other hand... $666 speeding fine
It was our car registered under his small business so he lost no points but had to pay double the fine.. I was so not happy!!!
Funny story.. When I first met my husband he Had a real old bomb for a car it was a 17 year old Magna...
It was falling apart.
The hand brake never worked and we he had to carry bricks around in his car to put behind the wheels so the car didn't roll away when parked!! Haha
he would quite often drive along the high way and put the hand brake up to try and scare me but nothing ever happened because it was broken.
One day we went driving, it had been raining and the road was an empty long straight street and it was about 1am in the morning..
Any way we were driving along and Dh decided to pull the hand brake up to try and scare me.. Well for some reason the hand brake worked this time!! We went flying off the road and I don't think I have ever in my life heard a man scream so loud
A cop happened to be just down the road and had seen what had happened and DH got a fine.
He was so shaken up he never ever mucked around with the hand brake again.

Um dont remember how much but $300ish when I was on my red Ps for speeding. 20 something kms over the limit :/ Suspended for 6 months. I was young and stupid and it was 1am on a Wednesday night going down a dip and needed the momentum to go up the other side...) And one really bad parking fine. $200ish. I dont remember why though... I think I parked overtime (30 minute limit).

The only fines I've had in my 5 and a half years of driving are 2 for parking. Once while I was at the hair dressers for too long and once while I was at work and couldn't be bothered going down to move my car. No points lost for either obviously
Also as much as I'd love to be pulled over for a RBT I'm always the first car they let through after pulling cars over!! No fair!

No fines yet, and have been driving for 13 or 14 years.
I did avoid one fine though, failing to stop at a stop sign. I was so sick with the flu, heavily pregnant, tired, morning sickness still.. And there are 3 stop signs between my house and my daughters school. One is a slight hill start on the way back, and I just felt like I had no energy to do it, so just slowed down. Mr police man was in the street to the left of me..
It was around the time that swine flu was in the news, so I'm pretty sure the policeman thought that's what i had. He literally took a step back from the car once he realised I had the flu lol.
I had also left my entire bag at home, with my licence in it.. I must have looked so miserable that he took pity on me and let me off on both counts with a warning and sent me on my way I was so grateful!
