Generally, a traffic cop will never, listen to your side of the story after writing you a traffic ticket. The only sure way to beat a traffic ticket is to post the bail, appear at the trial and pray that the cop doesn’t show up. If the traffic cop shows up, then it is very likely that you will lose in court regardless of how articulate, passionate or convincing your case is. The reason, if the judicial magistrate is forced to decide a case between the traffic cop they see on a daily basis and you, guess who wins? Should this stop you from fighting your ticket? No! If you feel that you were wrongly ticketed, fight and fight hard. You may just win. If you don’t fight the ticket, then you will certainly lose.
