Has anybody argued a traffic ticket and won?

Not from the cop being a no-show but from actually presenting your side in front of the judge. My ticket is b.s. and I plan to take photos of the intersection and plead my case. My odds?

  • Well I know my SO has gotten out of many, many tickets by just peeding not guilty jury trial. Even on speeding tickets and he has gotten out of it.

  • I think if you actually show up they will give in a little. At least cut down the fine. Good luck!

  • My husband did. He wasn't speeding because the speed the cop noted on the ticket (which was right) was within the speed limit for the area. My husband took photos of the speed signs and the judge knew the area so the ticket was thrown out.
