Have You Ever heard of TicketKick?

Hi Neighbors!

OK, maybe I am naive, but I did not realize that there were places like TicketKick where they assist you in fighting a speeding ticket.  I do understand that sometimes you are ticketed wrongly and need assistance.  I personally do not drive, but I have spent close to 10 years on the road traveling with our family.  I had my restricted in my teen years, and never went to get my regular driver's license.  During that time I was never even stopped.

My husband has been driving for over 30 years and has never had a speeding ticket, but the children LOVE to share about when he  almost received a ticket for going about five miles under the speed limit.  We were on our way to visit a church on a Sunday morning on a four lane road.  We knew we had to turn left in about a block, so my husband changed lanes and prepared to turn.  The turn was a little further up then we thought, but just before he was supposed to turn, we had lights appear behind us.  Sure enough he was being pulled over!  All of us were buckled in, so we knew that was not the problem and we knew he had not been speeding.  Imagine our surprise when she told us that he was going too slow in the fast lane.  Now mind you there was almost no traffic and he was not even five miles under the speed limit, it was more like three.  My children all watched wide eyed as she explained that in the fast lane you are expected to go over the speed limit.  Wow!  Speed Limit.  Doesn't that mean that is the fastest you are supposed to go?  Anyway, he explained that we were turning soon and that is why he was in that lane.  She proceeded to give him a verbal warning, making sure to let us know that she could give him a ticket, and then let us go. We were soon on our way to church again.

Needless to say we made it to church on time and without any other delays.  My children still enjoy sharing this story even though it happened several years ago.  They really think it is funny.

Have any of my neighbors ever received a speeding ticket?  Do you have a funny story you would like to share?  Please feel free to leave a comment and share your story with us.

You are the first I have heard getting a ticket for under the speed limit.. we live in very small town and it just about scares me when I have to go on a expressway or a 4 land highway and not know when I have to make the turn. Never heard of the TicketKick, wonder if they will be expanding to other states.?

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
