Question Do traffic courts break for lunch?



Hey guys,

As preparation to fighting a speeding ticket next week, I want to go in and watch some cases this coming Monday. Just wondering if anyone knows whether they take a break around noon (or if you know when it is) so that I don't plan to go there during the break.

Government operation, I'd assume lunch from 11:30 - 1:30

Turns out there were cases set for 9am, 11:30am, 1:30pm, 3pm.

I came in for the 3pm ones. What. a. Joke!!! Some observations:

1) A deal is offered to everyone. People with multiple charges had most/some dropped if they agreed to plead guilty to one. I heard up to 88 in a 60 being dropped to 75 in a 60 (no points, haha they get everyone on "no points" and everyone is sadly happy to take it)

2) All the paralegals in one court room (watched two) had their charges dropped as soon as they stepped up and said their name. Prosecutor: "No prospect of conviction, please withdraw" or "Insufficient evidence for a conviction, charge withdrawn" This was shocking. This happened at least 7 times.

3) Some paralegals mentioned no disclosure, or that they had filed a notice of constitutional question for 13+ months. Prosecutor: "I have reviewed the service of constitutional question. Based on past court decisions, there is an improbable chance of conviction, withdrawn." This happened at least 11 times. There were only a few paralegal cases where they accepted the deal (75 in a 60) as offered to everyone (poor clients didn't realize they can do this themselves).

4) NO ONE entered into trial with a not-guilty plea.

I'm going to love the prosecution's face when they hear me say not-guilty, I want to hear the prosecution's case against me... I'll most likely lose (the only way to win a speeding charge is if they mess up and if you know what they messed up), but you never know, and it'll be a lot more fun than accepting their "deal".
