well(ill keep it short(i hope) ), im glad i said by the Grace of God. i wasnt sure where i was going but i had an idea where whitestone,queens is. i found the court,didnt take too long to decide to pay for parking(i am here for a ticket),& went in. nydmv is always in the building that traffic court is in. i know this by experience. always fight the ticket,my neighbor(nypd officer)told me. so..im here. i found my name on the cork boards lists & the room they ll have the hearing in at 1:00. great. i ll wait in agony another 17 min til the judge shows up. 3 people before me. Lord i drive for a living,2 jobs you know. i drive 1 of Your buses at church. after23 years do i not know what im doing? how can this happen? what can i pray ?! HELP!...heres the judge.looks like a sweet old guy...they always do.like jekle&hyde. 1st victim...ticket thrown out! thats what i need. 2nd...rolled thru a stpo sign...wow thrown out! 3rd..what happened...i missed it.. but thrown out too! the cop is having a bad day..i might be in trouble.the issuing officer is there to testify against you. "michael fhghyuhkjhkjh..."they always get my name wrong. "state your name" good i get to correct them. then he asks the officer to explain the violation...what was that?...did he just wave me off?! WOOHOO! ill take it!all i had to say was say my name. oh & say "thank you judge." like i said by Gods Grace! & Thank You Jesus! ill keep driving for You! i gladly paid $4 for 2hrs. of parking(the minimum fee) & was there less than 1 hour!

why in this time of bad economy does the working man get harassed? i drive to pay my mortgage, gas ,electric,water ,sewer,phones(2),insurances-car(2)& home,taxes_home& vacation property,timeshare,home improvment loan,and support my elderly parents that i cant even see w/o an argument from my wife who stays home to teach 2 kids i still have left @ home.2 jobs, and sunday school bus(volunteer) driver subject to all the drug & alcohol spot checks they can throw @ me, which i wish they would stop wasting they re time as i dont do any drugs ,drinking, smoking,or anything else illegal. which brings me back to the big WHY ! im off from work today , which i cant afford,to answer a traffic ticket i got for driving my 48 foot tractor trailer off truck route! what is" off truck route"? did you ever get furniture delivered? refrigerater? ever move your residence & use a moving company? the truck that brought / took your stuff was more than likley off truck route!!! some BOZO decided trucks cant go on MOST roads in NYC. next time your there, or even where you are right now,stop a moment & look around you. you wont find anything that wasnt on a truck at some time or another! even snow is moved by trucks! so when a trained pro,who is constantly scrutenized(i dont get paid to spell) is simply doing his job,paying(at least trying to)his bills by bringing your fav store your pleasures& nessecities, i ask WHY give him a hard time making him defend what he has to do to support his family & be a positive part of the economy. he s not on welfare,drunk or on drugs,commiting crimes while neglecting his responsibilitys to his family, community,or country. but ill go do that today by the Grace of God....because it is right. do right.if the stars fall,do right.
