I'm about to leave for court to enter my "Not Guilty" plea on a traffic ticket I got two weeks ago. I was caught doing 75 in a 50 on the highway I take home from work and school. The not guilty thing is a ploy. If I plead not guilty and waive my right to a speedy trial, I'll be lucky if this thing sees court by March, giving me plenty of time to save up for the fine. Also, because the ticket was issued in Cleveland during a holiday surge in enforcement run a high likelihood that the cop won't even show up and I won't have to pay anything at all (as happened to me once before over a Labor Day weekend ticket).
Anybody else get some outrageous speeding or other traffic tickets this holiday?
That's cool... I guess.
In ohio you have to pay court costs unless you waiver the ticket, and you can't waiver tickets over 20mph over the limit.
thats so awesome, stick it to the man and lets do whatever we want!
paging internet detectives, plz find moe_fwacky's information and send a copy of this thread to the municipal court in his area along with a letter explaining what a douche he is
Several years ago I was stopped in my college's parking lot for running a stop sign at 11pm on a Saturday night. (As in, it was an empty lot).
I waited until the final day to appear or contest on the ticket and got an extension.
Then I waited as long as I could and contested it, picking the date furthest down the calendar, looking for a holiday. I ended up getting my court date set for good friday, when my ticket had been issued before halloween. The cop didn't show and the ticket was dismissed.

but, knob... that's... have you ever had a speeding ticket?
You can do Guilty, which is stupid if your officer isn't there.
Guilty with explaination, which is what most people do.
or not guilty, which is what you do if the cop isn't there.
Guilty, with erection
Such base humour, denihilist. I would never steep to such a low level.
it just makes me mad
people drive like fuckin' jackoffs 24/7
and they'll never stop because there isn't any goddamned reason to
speeding ticket? failure to yield? running a light? reckless driving? pffft, no big deal you can just red tape your way out of them and continue driving like a fuckass!
The eagle cries, Knob.

How far are you from Yellow Stone?
Hey, I only drive fast. I follow about 95% of traffic laws to the letter, except for the speed limit. I'm good at high speeds and an impatient motherfucker. So what, I drive 75 in a 50 on an empty highway at 10:15PM.
they drive around and if they see you driving like a jackoff they follow you home and beat your ass silly in front of your family
and give you a brightly colored card with a funny cartoon that explains the ways your driving is atrocious, then dust you off, hand you a beer and drive off into the night
i think sanctioned ass beatings would be a pretty good deterrent
its in the northwest corner and i'm in the eastern part of the middle, and it's a pretty big state
i'm pretty sure this already happens in texas, but it's the other way around.
if you're not driving like a jackass, they beat you 'til you learn.
wevs do you speed
man, people suck at driving here
Natasha's family lives near Yellow Stone in some other state and I was hoping that we could get together and ride horses together and camp out on the range and eat beans and coffee and stare uncomfortably at one another's boots before fucking each other brainless while coyotes howled in the distance, an echo of our love.
