question

April 10th, 2003 · 7 Comments

Say someone (okay, me) gets stopped for speeding (49 in a 35, according to the cop — my speedometer said a little over 50), and is warned to slow down and sent on her merry way. Say, sometime down the line, someone gets stopped (again) for speeding (again) on the same road (I just can’t help it — it’s big and nearly traffic-free, and it’s SPRING). Will there be a record at MNDOT of the original warning, if no one wrote anything down? I’m just curious.

    I’m sure they dont keep track of the warnings.

    I’m also POSITIVE that if I had gotten a pulled over for going 14 over (in a residential area no less), I would have gotten a ticket.

    damn it.

    It’s just a warning. That’s why they call it a warning.

    Are you trying to decide whether you should continue to speed up and down on Nicollet?

    It’s not really a matter of consciously deciding to speed on Nicollet — it’s just something that I find myself doing. It’s easy and fun. :) Really I’m just wondering if I still have a blemish-free record (one ticket, 11 years ago, in Nashville, doesn’t count anymore).

    You’re not truly blemish free. My ticket in PA from ‘97 never made it onto my record in OR, and would have been deleted after a few years anyways, but I count it as a blemish. Oh, and the two car crashes.

    Well, and that, um, "unauthorized borrowing" of the Hyundai with Angela and Matt, if you really want to get picky about things. :)

    Whether *I* am blemish-free is not the issue. It’s about what The Man can find out by calling his supervisor. And come to think of it, the ticket I got in Nashville (65 in a 40, IIRC — I was really really mad at some guy) was never actually *on* my record because I went and watched a driving safety film (starring Christopher Reeve) at the request of the court.

    Was it a "written warning" or a "verbal warning"? If’n he handed you a copy of a written warning, its on your record, and shows up when they run your DL number. Verbal warning and the guy was too lazy to write one up. You are fine.
