Maybe where you are they don't show up but in Maine they schedule the hearings for the cop once every week or two and he has time to show up. Dont show up and you're not doing your job, do it often enough and you get fired. I know they show up b/c I've fought every ticket I've ever gotten...the rest I know b/c one of my good friends is a cop now.Originally posted by STIwish
Everyone should fight their tickets, odds are the cop wont show up at your arraignment and it will almost always be dismissed or at least reduced. Is how I keep a spotless record especially when I am pulled over for seemingly ridiculous things.
I took my friend for a ride. He said he didn't think his cruiser would stand a chance...but his radio would.
