Star - funny you said this cause I have gotten out of every ticket i have been pulled over for (be very polite, chipper, and smile pretty!)
Im not worried about the fee - it's actually a $10 fix it ticket - the DMVworker signed off on it not even 20 minutes later (she could not believe he gave me the ticket even though i showed him proof i had JUST paid the registration 2 days ago) - all i have to do is mail in the payment. Im not going to fight it - too much work for 10 bucks. The cop was just a butthead.
i have to laugh it off at what an uptight guy this cop must be and feel sorry for his wife/family
