Re: fighting massachussets laser ticket
First thing you should do is closely examine the ticket... Make sure all the
information is correct... model of car, color, time of day, license,
registration, place, etc... if it doesn't match up you might be able to get
out on a technicality (A friend of mine got a parking ticket. He has Ohio
plates, and the officer put down NY plates. The ticket was thrown out of
court). Also be sure to remember the officer's name and what he looks
like... many times the officers are so busy that they send a 'proxy' in their
Here in CT, instead of getting hassled with the paperwork of processing a
ticket, sometimes they make you a pay a certain amount to a charity and all
you have to do is give proof of a receipt... The charity makes out, the court
has less BS clogging it, and you don't get any points on your license....
And finally, I don't know if this works or not but you can try it...
Whatever the outcome of your ticket is... Have the bill for the fine and
court fees (a lot of tickets you can plead 'no conteste' by mail and they
will send the bill for the court fees to your house). When you pay it, pay
10$ over whatever you owe. When the check gets sent back to you for the
overpayment, DO NOT cash it.
It seems that the court can not close out the case until all financial
transactions are cleared... If the case never closes the points will never go
on your ticket. I can't verify it, but it might be worth the shot.
Hope this helps...
