THis cop gave me a ticket for passing a left arrow red light and crossing a double yellow line. He also cited me for something else but he let it go. I was being polite with him. He told me that he will let me off with a warning for the left arrow red light because if he doesn't the bill will be over 300 dollars. He even wrote it in the ticket. When i got the official ticket from the court, it says i violated the the left arrow red light and crossing double yellow line. There was nothing in there about a warning. The bill came out to 530 dollars. Can i fight this? The actual yellow ticket he wrote says "warning" after the red light violation. Please advise me. Thx

Sorry friend, but sometimes the warning is the ticket. Other than that it would have just been verbal. You could go contest the ticket in court and if the cop doesn't show up you don't have to pay. I had a teacher who would do it all the time and he usually won.

There is very clearly a discrepancy in documents. I would certainly bring this to the courts attention. While you are willing to pay, it wouldn't hurt to address this. You are not looking to minimize your responsibilty, you are merely referring to what you have and what he has, and how that discrepancy can be addressed.

The sheriff's name should be on the ticket. You have to find out which district he was from and call the station and see if there is anything that can be done.

I had my car parked in front of my house about a month ago and a cop was pulling over a vechicle who did not have a light on his back license plate. As the vehicle was beinf pulled over, smack! He hits my parked car. I get a phone call from my sister who heard the crash because I was not at home at the time. I drove to the scene in front of my house to find out the guy driving the vehicle did not have insurance because he was driving his sister's car.

The cop gave me two options... 1.exchange information and use the trust issue between us, or 2. take down a police report. I choose option 1.

A day later, found out the phone he gave me were wrong. I made a few phone calls to different police stations and first thing they ask is what the officers name was? I did not know or remember to take down his name.

I narrowed it down to which station he was from (CHP), and made a walk in police report, call my insurance (Thanks Mercury), and car was taken into the shop ($3000.00 worth of work).

Hope you get it taken care of. Thats alot of money. Why did you pass the left arrow on red anyway?
