Her Husband Was Driving Her Car and Got Yet Another Speeding Fine, but When He Asked Her to Take the Fall for Him, She Refused

A woman recently wrote to an online forum to ask if she was right to take a speeding fine for her husband. He was driving her car when she got the ticket, so she thinks he should take responsibility. Here’s her story.

The woman wrote, “I have always been a pretty responsible driver and have never received a speeding fine. I drive because I have to, not necessarily because I enjoy it.”

“My husband, on the other hand, is definitely a car and motorcycle enthusiast,” she added. “He loves his car and bike and gets immense pleasure from driving and riding.”

Remote living

The couple lived in a remote area of Australia. The nearest shops are miles away, and there is no public transport. Driving is an absolute necessity.

The woman worked from home and drove a handful of times per week. Her husband drove to work and clocked up around 200 miles every day.

Over the last few years, her husband has gotten several speeding fines. He tries to drive safely, but it can happen from time to time on the open road.

The other night, the couple was driving home. They were in her car. Up ahead, there was a car driving erratically. The couple felt that the driver was drunk.

They reasoned that it was a dangerous situation. The husband decided it was best to overtake the car in front. He went for it, and the other vehicle sped up at the same time.

A short time later, the woman got a letter in the mail. It was a $385 fine, plus three points on her driving license. Her husband paid the fine and asked her to take the points.

The woman refused his offer. She didn’t want to have the points on her license, and she was also sure that what they were doing was illegal.

Absolutely furious

Her husband was livid. He needs his license for work, and if he gets one more ticket, he’ll face a driving ban.

Was she in the right?

The woman felt bad. She understood the position she put her husband in and wanted to get a temperature check from other people. She wrote to an online forum and asked for some advice.

The internet responded

One poster said, “Pretty sure in class we were told that we aren’t supposed to speed in order to pass another car. Also, I feel like speeding to get in front of a drunk is, like, the worst possible plan here.”

While another commenter declared, “Let your husband accept his well-earned points; it’s better than the alternative of answering stupid questions to the authorities about why you covered for him.”
