    Re: Just got a ticket

    I received this in an e-mail. Don't know if there is any truth to it, but it seems reasonable.

    IF YOU GET A TRAFFIC TICKET

    This system has been tried and it works in every province. If you get a speeding ticket or went through a red light or whatever the case may be, you're going to get points on your license, this is a method to ensure that you DO NOT get the points. When you get your fine, send in a check to pay for it. If the fine is $79.00 make the check out for $82.00 or some small amount over the fine. The system will then have to send you back a check for the difference, however here is the trick.

    DO NOT CASH THE REFUND CHECK! Throw it away! Points are not assessed to your license until all financial transactions are complete. If you do not cash the check, then the transactions are NOT complete. The system has received it's money and is satisfied and will no longer bother you. This information comes from an unmentionable computer company that sets up the standard databases used by every province. Send this to everyone you know. You never know when they may need a break.

    I haven't had a ticket in about 20 years.

    I haven't had a Viking season ticket for over 20 years, either. Last Vikes game I went to where they played at home was in 1981.
