Cops don't like them. Even though I have total control of my wheelies and I know what I'm doing, I still broke the law and for that I have to pay the consequences.
So if you try to take a wheelie ticket to court the officer will more than likely show up. Especially if he is a corporal. So ya, I went to court yesterday to dispute a ticket I got for doing a wheelie. Cop was there. No fine reduction. Stern scolding from her "worship" the judge. She was very close to yanking my license on the spot. :O I was first up, she looked at the charges and then told the officer and I that she needed some time to think about it so she dealt with all the other cases first. Needless to say that 20 minutes was the longest 20 minutes of my entire life. It felt more like 2 hours. Then finally she calls us up again. The officer was not a jerk about it. He was merely doing his job and I commend him for that. He basically told the judge the whole story including the fact that I was very polite and I produced a valid driver's license. The judge then asked me some personal questions about my employment circumstances and what not. I quite strongly believe that because I have a good full-time job and I will be going to school and that my employer is paying for all the expenses and that I'm doing quite well for myself, the judge went soft on me. She didn't take my license. So all I got out of the deal was a judge who ruled that I get to keep my driving privilege and a big fine and an even bigger points premium of which I'll pay through the nose for.
Now, what I'm concerned with is this, will the superintendent take my license?
