Amazing. It was probably the same guy...younger, in his early 20s....
He told me to call that number too. I asked why I would need to call that number...I asked why this procedure is any different than say, a speeding ticket. He got angry and then said "Don't call it then; do what you want. I don't care if you call it or not." Then, when I did call, I got the same response as you....voicemail and when I finally spoke with a a person, she said the same thing: the cop should not have given me the number and I should not have called.
Side pipes? I think I met you at the KFC last year when I was in my buddies car for lunch!
My appeals trial is this Thursday in West Chester. I'll let you know the details of what happens and if I come up with anything else. I sent you a PM.
