stop sign violation ticket



Got this ticket when I ran through a stop sign and a COP car was right behind me.

Hired a ticket fighter. He went to trial for my case probably 3 or 4 times total. The trials dragged for almost two years. Finally, today I got a notification that I am a free man!!

I dont know why the charge was withdrawn though! But who cares.

The ticket was $110. The ticket fighter charged me $250.

I just didn't want to screw up my driving record which may give a reason for the insurance to go up. I am paying $1600 a year for auto insurance. It just went down this month, do you guys notice? I paid $1800/yr last year.

So I gambled this $250.

Thanks,

I attended the first trial with the ticket fighter. I was hoping the cop wouldn't show but he did.

all tickets are dismissed if it goes past 1 year and a month I believe. Even shit like drinking and driving .. if it isnt solved within that time they let it go.

It was over 1 year because he did an appeal for me.

did you really go through the stop sign or did you do a complete stop?

crooks i tell ya. speeding is probably the only law that shouldn't be...in most areas.

I did a rolling stop.

After the ticket I did a full stop on every stop sign. I dont get any more tickets but I am getting a lot of middle fingers from drivers behind.

In fact, that's the thing I tried to avoid that day because I found a car following me closely!! And of course that car turned out to be an unmarked cop car. So from now on, I don't care whose behind me, I just do what the traffic law says. I even do a full stop on a red light when turning right. That's when I get most honks and middle fingers these days.

so YOUR the one who's stopping and holding everyone up eh









hehe just kidding , i had the exact same ticket you did in sept 2003, and for the next few months after, i stopped at every stop sign and red light when turning right. i did have a trial a year later in sept 2004, but instead of hiring a lawyer, i just asked the prosecution if i could have an adjournment because "my legal representative had some personal matters to attend to".

so it got adjourned to october 2005, and this time the cop didnt show up so it got thrown out and i got the hell outta there!
