Arizona countered my Fastballs with Curveballs!

So you all read about my 4 trips to Camelback Ranch during The Dodgers Spring Training right?  Well, Arizona countered my Fastballs with Curveballs!!  

I knew in one of those trips our picture was taken on the freeway but what do I get in the mail?  Not one, not two, but THREE speeding tickets!!

I was like Oh No!  That is not me on the pictures!!! 

Surely I should have slowed down or  taken this

on closer examination of the dates and times I was like

See full size image

 

What???!?   Two tickets within 3 minutes???????

 

 

Help!! 

Surely there must be something I can do about at least removing one!

Arizona is

evil, evil, evil. 

36 cameras on the following freeways 10, 101, 51, 60, 117,   Take a look at this link for all the camera locations http://photoenforcement.azdps.gov/Cameras/

Three tix? Uh-oh. I hope they don’t take away your license or you won’t be able to go to Dodger Stadium!

Julia,
A cop would not give yu a tix if you just got one 3 minutes ago.

Jane,
There were in Arizona. It does not show my licence there. I had rental cars when I went to AZ. It looks like I can pay them without giving them my license.

Oh no! How did you manage 2 in 3 minutes! They should cut you some slack on that one. Let’s hope anyway.

Canuk,
That is what I don’t understand, how did I manage two in 3 minutes! I am hoping one can be dropped.

Hola Emma,
Si, tenemos a Carlos Quentin liderando en jonrones pero en la División Central de la Americana las cosas están muy reñidas en cambio tus Dodgers están liderando la Oeste de la Nacional sin problemas, veo como ya San Francisco se distancia a 3,5 partidos de diferencia con respecto a Los Ángeles. Yo estoy bien, de holiday hasta el 20 de mayo. Por aquí también tenemos calor, unos 25 grados más o menos, ideal para estar todo el día en la playa. Espero que estés bien amiga. Te mando un fuerte y cordial saludo, hasta pronto…

Yuck that is some horrible luck right there Emma. If you keep it up you’ll soon owe the Los Angeles DMV *one million dollars*. Ok, bad Dr Evil joke. My bad. Ashhttp://ashleymarshall.mlblogs.com

Alex,
Pero imaginate que hemos perdido dos juegos en Houston and hoy de seguro van a traer la escoba. Espero que Billingsley ponga un paro a estas perdidas. Que bueno que estas de vacaciones.

Ash,
LOL. That is what I call it, horrible luck because before I went to Arizona I had just finished taking traffic school. Don’t think I am a wreckless driver, is just that they changed this exit on the freeway to NOT make right turns on a red light. The patrol officer was running out of room pulling cars to the side. Tough luck in my part exiting where I usually do not exit. What can I do now but make fun.

Holy Moly!
Sometimes those air patrols and also the road patrols can get you when you least expect them.
Hopefully you have a driving school option, or they can maybe void one of them. Sometimes I think that those traffic cameras can cuase more harm than good.
Talk to an attorney, maybe there is a simple thing to do to make one or some of them go way……………for good. Usually the consultation is free.

Three tickets? Yikes! Just how fast *were* you driving?

Ray_ no, they did not offer driving school. Andre Ethier’s das told me it does not go against my record. Once I realized I was talking to him and I know he lives in Arizona he told me it does not affect my driving record.
.
Yes Sue! three tickets… Noone has asked me yet how fast I was going…Let’s see..87 on a 75 speed limit.

Wow Emma you have me rethinking if I was speeding when I was in Arizona a couple of weeks ago! Arghh. Thanks so much for the info about parking and such and the all the great info on Dodger Stadium. You are the true embassador and definitely the next time I am out there I am looking to you for some advice! Good luck with those tickets and I might have to be checking the mail to see if any are coming my way…Yikes!

tom – Oh i hope you do not get any of those Arizona envelopes.

Regarding the information about Dodger Stadium, I only wished I could have told you before. I just hope there is a next time so that I can show you the rest of the stadium. If you are ever here again I’ll give you a tour.

Ouch, I was afraid I was going to get one from Florida when I was there for Spring Training.jan

Hey Emma,

The reason you have 2 traffic tickets in 3 minutes is because the cameras are within minutes of each other. Remember on our last trip I jotted down the exits where the camera’s are located and they are located at the exits 110, 114, and 117. So I guess we can say you were lucky it was two within three minutes and not three. Next time we are in Arizona we know to be more watchful.

Arizona is lousy with those cameras. I was out there a few years ago and got five of them – five! – in the mail when I got back home to L.A. I called them up and patiently explained that, yes, I’d run some red lights because it was 3 in the morning and my father had just died and I was trying to get to the hospital and sorry but there was no traffic so why don’t you just cut me a freaking break?

They reduced it to three. Heartless jerks.

Stl – They have not put any cameras in Florida, have they?

LuvtheDodger23, – I have a friend on the train that he is going to AZ with his boss as they are buying some antique cars there from a junkyard. He asked for the list so I printed it for him. They won’t catch us next time.

Roundrock15! Five! Wow!! Sorry I reminded you of this.

Giants and Dodgers tonight! I bleed Orange and Black. I’m hoping we can take 2 out 3 from you guys. Zito is on the mound tonight. Hoping he can have another good start.

Hey Cali,
I’ve been so busy but I’ll put a new post soon.
.
A couple of lefties going tonight with Zito and Randy Wolf. I hope Wolfie has it tonight!! One of these days you and I should make a bet!
Let’s Go Dodgers ::clap, clap clap clap clap::

I don’t think I am going back to Arizona anytime soon. In yesterday’s mail, I got 3 envelopes from the car rental. It says I violated the rental agreeement so they will charge $30 for each ticket to my credit card.
