    Getting fired up for my \"court\" date...

    9+ parking tickets to fight... Thursday night, 7pm. I have a feeling thursday's gonna be a lonnnnnnnnng night, and not a happy one.

    Frickin boneheads don't tell you what tickets you're there to fight, just that you must appear (if you plead not guilty).

    I'm going in armed with:
    -photos of the 20+ year old worn out/indistinguishable parking stall markings ("Parked outside marked stall" summons')
    -registration card for my '86 Black Blazer (ticket issued to my Blazers' plate, but described on the ticket as a red Chevy sedan /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif)
    -photos of my commuter parking permit on the windshield of my old Nissan (ticket for parking without a commuter parking permit)
    -photos of the faded and unreadable signs regarding parking in stalls and on the grass (ticket for parking on the grass and outside a marked stall)

    I'm just all irritable now cause my reminder popped up to prep for the court date, and I have much better things to do than PROVE myself law-abiding because they're hoping I'll just be lazy and pay the tickets (over $400 worth). And, the collection company is screwing with me... They sent a notice today that I owe and am in collections on 2 $45 tix and 3 $135 tix, that I've already plead not guilty to and am waiting for my day in court.

    Traffic citations are such crap. I swear it's like the burden of proof is on you and not the state every time you go to court for one. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Re: Getting fired up for my \"court\" date...

    I got a letter in the mail last week from the great state of West Virgina saying that I was issued a parking ticket and owe them 120.00 and if I did not pay they would issue a warrant. I called these Asswipes and told them that I have not been in their state for 13 years. Their Response was it is my problem and prove it was not my Truck. I asked this dipsh!t what type discription was on the Ticket. A yellow Truck with Penske on the side. It was a Fawking rental Truck.After arguing for about an hour I got them to run the plate number. WOW it was a mistake, The truck was registered to penske logistics. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Yeah....but these are tickets from 2001 that I'm fighting /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif



    What burns me up even more is when I respond to one of the letters I received today "PAID 5/5/04, Check your records", then realize I never mailed the check I wrote them 5/5/04 /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif...

    Yeah, but I've tacked on a few more /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif...

    Amazingly, the tickets have stopped since I started driving a nice car.

    As ludicrous as that is... somehow it doesn't surprise me.

    Well, finally through them... I found 2 I wrote checks out for, where I was actually in the wrong /forums/images/graemlins/shame.gif...

    Then 5 that I compiled "evidence" for... Hopefully they won't throw something totally out of the blue at me...like unlawful use of parking lights... /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Re: Getting fired up for my \"court\" date...

    ...Well, I settled 7 tickets for $125. I didn't even use any evidence, but I did mention to the judge that I was annoyed to be paying a ticket I KNOW I shouldn't be paying, and for tickets that arent' even mine. I think they bank on you saying "ahh, fork it" with the plea bargaining...

    Still, $125 is better than over $300...
