Back in October, I was cited for running a stop sign. I won't post the details, but suffice it to say the officer was over zealous, and the circumstances were odd. So, for the first time ever, I decided to dispute the charge. I filed a written declaration (meaning I pled not guilty, then chose to voice my side in writing versus appear before a judge). I was told that if I appeared in court and agreed to pay the fine, that it would be reduced. Fight the charge and lose, however, and the fine would stand in full. I really felt the situation was inappropriate, so I decided to tell my side. Today I got the court's response.
Right flippin' on.
