A new survey asked drivers their favorite excuse for trying to get out of a ticket.

Here are the 10 most common excuses.  The survey did NOT ask how often they work . . .

1.  I couldn't see the sign telling me not to do it . . . like a speed limit sign, or a no U-turn sign.

2.  I'm lost and don't know the roads around here.

3.  I didn't know it was broken . . . like a broken brake light or turn signal.

4.  Everyone else was doing it.

5.  I'm having an emergency . . . like spilling a hot drink on your lap.

6.  I missed my turn or exit.

7.  I had to go to the bathroom.

8.  I didn't do anything dangerous.

9.  I was on my way to an emergency . . . like to help someone who was sick or injured.

10.  My GPS told me to do it.
