Anybody heard of a racket by the name National Safety Council ? They sent me a letter out - of all places - Nu Yawk saying I had accumulated 5-plus violations on my record and now MUST attend some ( reaching for a barf bag ) classes where I'd be educated about the joys of safe and responsible driving. Failure to comply will result - you guessed it - in suspension of my license. Of course they do that not only becasue they dare to care, but also in accordance with MA state law. http://www.mass.gov/legis/laws/mgl/175-113b.htm where I failed to find a reference to what they're talking about. Oh, almost forgot. These self-less crusaders for safe roads stand to separate me from about $100 in the process.
Now, in case you thought I might actually gain something from this encounter - point reduction, break on insurance premiums etc. - you thought wrong. Not in the state of MA. Ever since I moved into this socialist cesspool I have paid in various fees, fines and surcharges enough money to build a hospital somewhere in Calcutta. And all I did was get caught " violating " speed limits posted back when Nixon was in office, if not earlier. No accidents at fault or otherwise; no reckless drivng; no drivng under influnece; no endangering of property none of that stuff. The situation here has gotten so bad lately that I drive past speed traps practically once per day. For me to finally get off my rear and go buy a Solo 2 it really had to bite me in the arse, I guess :roll: .

Heh. Sounds like what I had to go thru when I lived in Boston- I had 7 incidents in 3 years (or whatever it was), and had to take a similar class.

Now get this- you'd think I was some sort of Public Enemy on the roads, but I've never had an at-fault accident, was able to manouver my way past all but one, and all they were are highway speeding tickets- but I'm the bad guy. An ex-girlfriend of mine RAN OVER two people on Commonwealth Blvd and skated with nary a citation nor warning and has never recieved a ticket, but has been in several accidents, mostly fender-benders.

VA was kind enough to send me a warning (couple years ago) that indicated that I would need to attend a class if I got another ticket within a certain time frame. Fortunately I've only had one since, and it was well past that date.

:twisted: Sure glad I don't drive up there any more. My last run-in with the Taxachusetts court system was for "driving to endanger the lives and safety of the public" :oops: and it cost me $110 and I couldn't drive within the state for a year. Good thing my license was from another state at the time. 8)

I actually went with that letter to the RMV and demanded to know WTF . Turned out they had a dedicated individual who handles pre-suspension matters. He looked me up in their internal database and returned with a foot-long print-out that covered nearly a 10 year time period. That's when I knew they had me by you-know-whats. The program itself isn't a scam. At least not in the sense those TV infomercials aired @ 3 a.m. are when they offer for as little as $39.99 to teach you how to make $ 1 million without getting outta bed. Here're a couple links.
