Here is the continuing saga of my photo speed trap speeding ticket.
Well, I went to court today. It was a full house and more streaming in as the “arresting officer” started calling names to come up. This is before the Judge even showed up. He would ask them what they wanted to do, if they wanted a reduction in the ticket, a bench trial or a jury trial. All of them before me just asked for a reduction. When my name was called, He asked me what I wanted to do and I said I wanted a jury trial and that I would ask for a dismissal because I wasn’t driving. The officer looked at me and looked at the picture on the ticket. He asked me if I knew the driver and I said yes, but He didn’t ask for the driver’s name. He handed me back my copy of the ticket and said dismissed. I didn’t even have to see the judge and I won’t have to spend another $100 bucks to travel down there again.
It pays to assert your rights…..Mike
