Called the clerk today to get an extension for court. She asked me to explain why the officer gave me a ticket and was totally in my corner. Before I had the chance to refute the ticket, she said, it was just plain wrong and would I send in a letter as to why I didn't think I should have been given a ticket and the 8 pictures I took of other violations, including the parking space where I was ticketed. I thanked her and asked her who would be reading my letter and looking at the pics. She replied, "I will, but I'm making no promises, until I see what you write in the letter."
It's never about the money; it's the principal of the thing.
