Ok.. so I just got this hrmm speeding ticket?? (It says Neglecting to Riding) down at WA states today. $490USD was the amount the freaking pig put on the ticket. I asked why so much... then he told me "You either sign the bottom or I'll consider you driving recklessly (which is a criminial charge) and take you to jail" So, I signed the bottom and here I have it.. a f$cking ticket that will cost me $490USD!!#$#.
Ok.. I gotta admit I was speeding... and passing the cars on the highway. Is that enough to consider it as Neglecting to Riding?? I mean.. if you give me a ticket for like $150USD... yeah.. fuck it.. I was speeding I gotta pay for the price.. but $490USD for speeding and passing cars (changing lanes etc... nothing illegal other than speeding) is just too much fucking bullshit.
I've heard a couple of ppl telling me that it's ok not to pay for the ticket... as long as I don't drive down at WA anymore. (I can be a passenger though) I was hoping to dispute the ticket by hiring a lawyer to dispute for me. But was told it'll not be worth it... as lawyer cost will probably be more expensive than the ticket itself.
I seriously and definitely will not pay $490USD for my act..that's freaking ghey... so plz help me out!!! Looking for good advise to settle this ticket!!
If there's nothing I can do... then I guess I'll just not pay the ticket and not drive down there again. I would like to know other consequences that'll result in not paying the ticket. Plz don't assume the consequences. I need facts.. eg: if your friend had done the samething and what happened?
