ticket DISMISSED

WOOT... I talked to the attorney in charge of prosecuting the local traffic tickets today, showed him the ordinance, and my pictures, explained the entire situation... he then made fun of the cop a little for being retarded and writting a ticket for what I did, and told me he would dismiss it if I paid the $30 court costs... needless to say, I paid them. So... I GET TO KEEP THE GT

Re: ticket DISMISSED

Re: ticket DISMISSED

My point is if the ticket is dismissed you pay nothing. The whole point is you were innocent of any crime yet you still have to pay for some incompetent cop who didn't know the law?

I'd look into starting a class action lawsuit against the state of Iowa for people just like you who have been found innocent and yet are still forced to pay court fees.

At the very least start lobbying your state senators to change this law.

Re: ticket DISMISSED

well, it was more of a deal made between the attorney and I. I would pay the court costs, and he would drop the charges today, no questions asked. I might've been able to save $30 if I had played the wait game, but I just wanted the ticket off my record. Also, I recognize I did do something slightly wrong, and I should've turned around and gone a different way, however, I also think a warning would've sufficed. So, the $30 was more of a gaurantee for it to not be on my record.

but I do see your point.

Re: ticket DISMISSED

Alot of smaller courts do that kindof ****. They just want your money anyway. You're more profitable if they can just get the money from you and not have to schedule you another court date. That's if you loose...If you win your case after getting the next court date, damn! you just cost them some coin.

Edit: $30 isn't bad at all...I wonder what they would have done if you had said no? I wouldn't have either...but still.

well, because of the first accident with the silver v-6, where the semi drove off... and my insurance had to pay, and the accident with the guard rail, that I also got a ticket for... I was "at risk" for "high risk" insurance, and my dad said he wouldn't cover high risk insurance on a 2002 GT. I can't say I blame him. As it was, the insurance company said they were going to up my rates $71 a month if the ticket stood. I'd be able to pay that, but they were really wanting to put me at the high risk level. So yeah, the GT was at stake if the insurance jumped. I can't wait for next May... that's 3 years from my first accident, and then I won't be nearly as close to the insurance jumps. I'll be 11 months from 25 when the last ticket and accident come off, which should lower my premiums, and then I hear when you hit 25, they drop some more.

Re: ticket DISMISSED

The attorney dismissed the charges, not the judge. I prefered the guarantee that it wouldn't be on my record... so it was worth it

Re: ticket DISMISSED

well I'm sure the Judge Appreciated getting the 30.00 court cost . Like MarkuzLS1 stated you saved them the trial money. So I guess you can call that a win-win situation
