You sound like an absolute sanctimonious, holier-than-thou jerk! Why not also add that in order to get a payment plan, you are REQUIRED to be "on probation" and, in addition to having to meet regularly with your probation officer, you pay an additional "visit fee" each time.<quoted text>They lost their license because they had a moving violation with a fine of $150-350 depending on priors. Bet they lost their license because their insurance cancelled them and a person has to have vehicle insurance or not license.
Like I said, the courts will allow payments if a person has a hardship. Just gotta ask the judge.
BTW- I used to think like you do... right up until my 18y/o son, using his parents vehicle, got a ticket for expired (by 40 days!) tag. The insurance WAS in force. Our crap-ass municipal court slammed HIM with a $680 fine, then assessed probation for the term of his "repayment" period. He wouldn't fight this because he is now terrified of LE.
I wrote a letter to Lamar respectfully requesting some relief- he wouldn't do ANYTHING. Now my son has a record- never been in trouble before or since. THIS is why I have very little respect for LE anymore... or the scumbag judge (from Duluth, GA?) that WE pay to visit us once a month to crap upon our citizens.
The local trooper (fattest one I've ever had the misfortune to meet) LIED by telling us to just plead guilty and don't argue. He, the judge and the POS do-nothing Clerk of that court are utter disgraces... and are worthy of ZERO respect. THIS is why LE and the public have become adversaries. It is also why I pray that "karma" really does exist.
Thanks, again, IO for your honest post and service.
