So I got booked by some piggies today...

Recommended Posts

Title says it all. Pulled over for speeding. First offense, and never had a warning before. Might go to traffic court. Tips/anything I should know?

 

Edit: Since I know everyone will give me the "don't speed" lecture, I somewhat couldn't help it. Nature was calling and I wasn't able to go for the entire morning.

A bit late for the "don't speed" tips, no?

 

Thanks for the link black.

 

Edit: Read that a few weeks ago, seems like it'll work.

Also a friend of mine got out of his ticket by taking the officer to court, he didn't show up and he won. Sometimes it's just that simple. This was in Florida by the way.

What if the officer does show up though? Kind of like bluffing in poker and getting called out.

Bring a lawyer, wear a suit and be prepared to fold. :cool2:

It'll be cheaper to pay the ticket and go to traffic school in that case lol.

you got 2 choices....

 

1) you knew you were speeding so just pay the ticket....ya did the crime...

 

2) go to court and see if the officer shows... some states will dismiss the case if the officer doesnt show or they may reschedule at a later date.... if he does show its the ticket plus court cost...your gamble. If the officer doesnt show and they dismiss it then no harm no foul and consider yourself lucky......

Then forgot the lawyer part. Wear a suit and be prepared to pay all the same.

 

Take in the small amount of satisfaction that while you still have to pay the ticket. YOu have successfully wasted some of that cops time.
