What makes some traffic tickets truly great memories is when the offender request to go to traffic court to contest the ticket. Let me make this clear, I believe it is a great right we have in this country to be able to go to court…in traffic court like any other court; the burden of proof is with the prosecution---which in most traffic cases is the police officer who wrote the ticket. I wasn’t even bothered when some of the drivers I cited stood up in court and flat out lied under oath.
I did the normal “safe” approach, asked for his driver’s license, and stuff. He responded with: “why do you need that?” I don’t like to argue, so I just said: “once you provide your license etc, I’ll explain the minor infraction I pulled you over for.”
I said: “Why yes I do.”
