How to Beat
a Traffic Ticket
(12/23/2002) This chain has been speeding around the net for so long, somebody should give it a ticket. Its somewhat plausible claims and impressive-sounding source credentials are interesting, but the message's origin belies its validity.
A popular point of folklore is the notion that government is riddled with little-known and silly loopholes that will allow those savvy enough to avoid the indignity less-knowledgeable others are subjected to. The easily accepted notion of government agencies as clumsy, poorly run offices fuels our belief that such a scheme could be possible.
The chain letter above originated in Australia in 1998. It was then attributed to the Royal Automobile Club of Victoria. Since then, it has migrated to the rest of the world, taking a first-person format. Our good friend Richard in the mythical "Ticket Enforcement Division" offers assurances and a lot more "proof" that this system-beater is true, but doesn't provide an ounce of truth.
Want a novel, sure-fire way to get out of points on your record? Try not speeding in the first place!! Break the chain!
