i had to testify as a witness in a DUI case. but i had to sit through several hours of traffic court until the dude's case was heard. i was surprised that the judge was a reasonable guy. several people came in admitting fault of the ticket but proved with evidence that the thing they did (mostly illegal equipment) was since fixed and the judge dropped the ticket.

it might be worth a shot. not to fight the ticket per say, but explain and show the court that you have fixed the issue.

Just so you all know, If I think you're an ******* I will gladly tell you. I'm not your everyday girl, so don't expect me to act like one. And yeah, I do like it topless and dirty!

Just about every court in the United States does this.

Fight it and lose you're in for fine+court costs. Court costs are often more than the ticket itself. And some courts if you fight it, lose and don't have the $$$ on you, you get to sit in jail until someone brings it down.

The courts by me don't charge court costs. You have no reason not to contest the ticket. Even if you are found guilty in the informal hearing, you can appeal to a formal hearing and be given another chance of having the cop not show up.
