license plates and driving history
I like where my license plate sits on my cb650. See if you can find it in the above pic.
Yea… it’s sort of hidden, but it’s also sort of visible from certain angles.
I’ve ridden in front of so many cops through the city for years, and no one has ever given me a problem about the plate placement until yesterday. Some robo-cop dude pulled me over for the license plate not being visible enough. He ended up not giving me a ticket because I played dumb and told him I bought the bike like this and thought it was fine etc…
But, turns out my license expired a week ago. So he was giving me shit about that.
Long story short… I went on PennDOT website this morning to renew my license, and saw this new little button that said “Purchase a record of your driving history”… for $5.
I don’t know about you, but I was a dickhead when I was younger and got a bunch of tickets and suspensions and stuff.
I forget how many times I’ve been pulled over or lost my license, so I got a damn good laugh when I downloaded this. It reads: suspension / suspension / suspension / suspension … ha
It’s funny now because I’ve grown up a bit and have no points on my license and things are all good. But it was a nice reminder of my youth.
No DUI’s. The alcohol related thing was a underage drinking thing at a house party Kevin had when we were 20 and the cops came.
And if you want a copy of your own…
– Log into PennDOT
– click on “renew your driver license”
– then “purchase a copy of your driving history”
– choose “full history”
One thing that is interesting, is that mine seems to start in 2001, and I know for a fact I got at least a dozen speeding tickets before then. Maybe they got wiped away once I turned 18? Do you know Brian? And from what I can remember a few things are missing… like when the lady rear-ended me on my cb650 in 2009 and the cops came.

I took off work and spent 4 days in the “Jankyington” garage. We burned enough wood to build a house in Kensington, which is to say, a fair amount of wood. Together with the Yerkes brothers, a lifetime supply of Sly Fox and a killer high from aircraft stripper, we had a Martin Luther King […]
