1. Speeding

2. hahahahahah. Yes.

Somewhere between 85 or 90 in 55 mph zone. No registration or current proof of insurance in the car. Several bottles of alcohol in the back of the car. I got a $120 ticket. I love nice state troopers.

3. I get very very careful. Pay extra attention to how I'm driving.

1. it used to be cursing and flipping off other drivers, but i've calmed wayyy down. i guess now it would be driving too fast.

2. yes, but i didn't get my first ticket until i was about 26 or 27. i've only had maybe 3 tickets altogether.

3. lol...i usually try to see if it's my husband if he's on duty or wave if it's another cop i know. seriously though, before i was married to a cop i acted normally. it makes you more suspicious if you don't. (unless i was drunk...then i'd try to run them off the road)

1. F'ng around with the stereo rather than watching the road.

2. Indeed.

3. Extreme paranoia, which probably makes me drive worse.

1. What is your worst habit when you drive?
Spacing out. This happens when I'm on the freeway going at a steady speed. Someday it's going to kill me.

2. Have you ever gotten a moving violation?
Yes. 50 in a 35 zone while visiting a friend at university. I had to drive all the way across the state to contest it, because it had a $300 fine for expired plates attached to it. Unfair!

3. How do you react when you see cops driving right next to you?
Check my speedometer. You never know.

1)Road Rage. Come on people, there's no reason to be driving 30 in a 50. NO REASON.

2)Nope. *knock on wood.* Though I was stopped for speeding once, but the cop took complete pity on me cause I was scared shitless.

3)Check my speedometer, use both hands on the wheel (at ten and two), Stop Singing, check my mirrors, look straight ahead and NOT look at the cop. They make me nervous.

1. I tend to toot the horn if someone ahead of me is being inattentive at a stoplight.

2. Yes, two. A long time ago. One for speeding; one for running a stop sign.

3. I tend to get very tense. It's worse if they're behind me, rather than beside me, though...

Have you ever noticed that they tend to tailgate and drive in an agressive manner? That happened to me the other day...

1. My driving is my worst habit. I drive fast, and I am aggressive. I do not, however, talk on my cell phone and drive. I think that's just stupid.

2. A couple of speeding tickets, a ticket for failing to come to a complete stop at a stop sign, a ticket for running a red light (it was yellow when I went through, honest.) My worst was driving 51 in a 25.

3. I don't really react that much. If the cop is going the same speed as I am, I don't worry about it. I react more if they are behind me. I tend to slow down.

1. Singing, dancing, and hitting all the surfaces in my car with the music.

2. Yup. Two of them. Years ago.

3. If I'm on the freeway, I slow down, if its city streets, I try to act casual; turn down the music and whatnot.
