Red light tickets...don't try to fight em, just pay up

Well, I spent my lunch hour driving to Rowlett to try to fight a red light ticket. Now, one might ask how on earth can you fight it? Either it was red or it wasn't. Well, that is the same thing the guy (what I thought was going to be a judge but wasn't) said. It was red, even though it was faint and I can barely see it in the picture and you might not have been able to see it from your angle, it was red so pay up or make another court appearance to see an actual judge that you thought you were to going to see today.....blah, blah, blah, it was crap. Never run a red light. If you can't see because they have the light on some temporary wire and it blows in the wind making it difficult to decipher what color it is, just stop. Right there in the intersection, get rear ended, but don't run the red light......

I just got a speeding ticket last week. Ugh.
I wanted to explain to the officer that it was the first time in 5 dayas I had left the house without the 3 year old and my mind was elsewhere, but I have a feeling that he wouldn't appreciate my mind being elsewhere no matter what the reason.
sigh, so I paid the ticket.

Hope you have a better week!

Not long time ago, my brother also had problems with a red light ticket. To get out of it, he hired a qualified and experienced lawyer from The results were extraordinary! That's why, my brother warmly recommends a lawyer to anyone who wants to beat a traffic ticket today!
