DAMNIT! got a ticket for rolling through a stop-sign

got a ticket today in seaside heights, NJ for rolling through a stop sign. However, there was no way I was stopped for any less than 10 seconds at the stop sign. I even stopped for a family to cross the crosswalk, and waved on the car stopped perpendicular to me, when they waved me to turn first. when I was making the turn, though, I started turning, slowed a little because there was a biker in the road, and then kept turning at normal speed. I think thats all the cop saw. any advice, when I go in to fight the ticket..??

Hard decision. I would see if he got that on tape. If not then you have a case. I am sure it would be thrown out. But today those cars have video cameras on them so who knows. I myself would try to fight it.

Re: DAMNIT! got a ticket for rolling through a stop-sign

i would LOVE if he got it on tape. He'd be able to see me completely stopped, waiting for the family to cross, waving on the black MDX that was perpendicular to me, pulling out, seeing the biker, trying to avoid the biker by slowing down a little, and then going on my merry way haha. funny thing is, I was headed to the municipal building already, to pick up extra garbage cans to put out the trash. If only he knew we went through about 6 or 7 kegs, and a few handles this past week.

Re: DAMNIT! got a ticket for rolling through a stop-sign

nah, the cops show up to court there. they only give two court dates per month, and all the cops show up for it. i have a friend with an RSX-s with about 15-20 thousand under the hood and on the outside. they show up to EVERY ticket he gets haha. He actually got a ticket for having his music too loud, on 4th of july in the middle of the afternoon. All he has is 2 10" sub, and wasn't even cranking it. welcome to sleaseside, NJ

Re: DAMNIT! got a ticket for rolling through a stop-sign

i'm not even modded haha. I was just trying to clean up some garbage from a week of partying, and this is what I get.

I'm definitly gonna fight it though. not only cause its a bullshit ticket, but I was legit stopped at the stop sign for 10 seconds.

Re: DAMNIT! got a ticket for rolling through a stop-sign

think of it this way...

you've got your story pretty damn straight. keep it that way. write it down. then you won't flinch when you explain it and you're prepped for the weird questions the judge may ask. just be honest, that's all you can do.
