No problem, I know how you feel. The shitty thing is that at least here, the road rules are not part of the criminal code so you are not "presumed innocent until proven guilty". The cop is assumed correct and it's your job to prove you're not an ass.

But you don't have to pay for it right?

I know it sucks that you have to do it in the first place but I wouldn't worry if I was you, you have a pretty solid case here. Witnesses seem to be a big deal. They assume that after the "raise your right hand..." business everyone becomes a saint. Just hope that your judge isn't tired and irritated and will hear you out. The guy I had, I watched him and he was getting so pissed off at all the crap he heard that he wasn't really willing to hear anyone out. I was all set with my crooked story about him not being able to see me from behind trees (stopsign) and had polaroids and everything. Then I realized it was best to plead to him. But you have facts and witnesses.

Good luck,
'90 535i

it will be 3 UCLA student's words and facts against a cops. I think I can prove him wrong, but it's still a pain in the ass to do, nevermind the risk of getting the ticket anyways... It's a pretty serious ticket down here.

Thanks for the support tho.
