I mean, I was pulled over for making a CA stop at a 4-way in the middle of absolute nowhere w a clear 360 view..the kind of road you pray you don't run out of gas on...b/c there is no gas station for a loooong ways and there are few if any cars as measured over hours. Yeah, I tried talking my way out of that...like "you have got to be kidding me?" I got out of it, but that wasn't the first time I was pulled over for a really insane reason, nor was it the last.
Well I'm glad someone understands...if there's a chance to get out of the ticket, why not try? I wasn't going to fight it, but the officer messed up. I can prove I wasn't using my phone at 1am =P (12 hrs after actual incident)
