    Traffic tickets

    Did you ever get a ticket that you didn't deserve WELL I got a F'n $205 seatbelt ticket in Houston last Saturday coming out of the Loves truck stop while having my seatbelt on! Let's say iam pissed off! The officer apologized to me after handing me the ticket that he could of be mistaken WTF. I need some advice how to proceed before I call the DA and beg for a fine reduction or whatever else I might need to do. 33 years of having a drivers license 15 of those a commercial license I believe it or not have worn a seatbelt iam lost for words about this! Please help if you can! Also would like to file a complaint on this officer! Let me know what you think!

    Show up for the court date and ask for a jury - tell the assistant DA you want to try the case. The trial date will be rescheduled and you will need to grab an attorney.

    Other than that, you'll have to pay the fine.

    I got a BS ticket when I was 16. I was in my Tahoe coming home from across town and I was passing this car before the construction zone...long story short a cop was sitting behind the berricade and pulled us both over. We both got drag racing tickets and gave me a curfew ticket. The SOB held us there for 35mins then comes upto my truck and says I cant legally drive since it was after 12. My parents were more pissed at the cop since he pulled me over 4 miles from the farm than me getting a ticket.

    Contact one of those ticket clinic things. Its like 80 bucks + court fees. Sometimes it amounts to the same as if you paid the ticket, but you dont get points on your license. Sometimes it can be far less than the ticket. Either way, I'd rather give the money to a lawyer than the dirty pigs.
