Thinking I was a Duke boy last weekend, I got a speeding ticket for 10 mph over the limit.  The actual radar reading was for 18 mph over, but the state trooper (who was actually very kind) “cut me a break” and instead of getting a $150 ticket and two points on the ol’ license, I received a $110 ticket & one point.  If I understand correctly, after six points, I get a free ticket.  Is that right?  The one great part (if there could be a great part of a sad story) is that instead of having to drive all the way down to the state line to pay for my driving sin, I was totally able to pay online.  Oh, the wonders of the internet.  I bet we’ll be able to pay regular bills online eventually.  How amazing!
