Top 10 Excuses We Give Cops to Get Out of a Ticket

We’ve all had that heart-sinking feeling when we see blue lights in the rear view mirror. Usually after you catch your composure, you start thinking of ways to get out of the ticket.

A new survey asked drivers to list their favorite excuse for trying to get out of a ticket. We’ve listed the top 10 excuses below. (We don’t know if any of these actually work though!)

  1. I couldn’t see the sign telling me not to. (like a speed limit sign or no U-turn sign)
  2. I’m lost and don’t know the roads around here.
  3. I didn’t know it was broken. (like a broken brake light or turn signal)
  4. Everyone else was doing it.
  5. I’m having an emergency.
  6. I missed my turn or exit.
  7. I had to go to the bathroom.
  8. I didn’t do anything dangerous.
  9. I was on my way to an emergency.
  10. My GPS told me to do it.

I once told an officer that my water broke. He somehow didn’t buy it.
