after having lived and traveled dozen+ countries i have absolutely ZERO interest in moving back to any western country of any kind... i did enjoy some places in central/eastern europe for an extended holiday though.

You’re still lucky over there. In some European countries the video is enough evidence and when they find the rider it’s bye bye drivers license for months or a year plus a fine in percentage of your income. And can be jail........

So you’re still lucky [emoji256]

Haven’t some countries also started having their police force monitor social media for “hate”/incorrect speech?
Or is that just an internet rumor?

GJB In CA you can also pay an attorney around a $100 to make the ticket get dismissed.

They handle everything.

You’re either going to pay the ticket, fight the ticket yourself (big hassle and time waster) or pay the attorney to fight the ticket.
The benefit to the attorney is keeping your driving record clean(er) and insurance rates down.
In CA traffic citations count against your record citation date to citation date for traffic school. Having an attorney delay things won't help. The point will go on your record. I could have delayed things myself without an attorney but the result would have e been the same.
I understand.
That comment was not to show that my attorney just delays and then pleads guilty, but rather to point out the hassle free experience. He has been to court 3 times on my behalf (I’m sure he goes most days for multiple clients) and I have not been there once.

This ticket was in a very tough county, attorney informed me at the outset that he may not be able to get it to a non-moving violation but thought he get it reduced to 9 over, which will be the first moving violation on my record in years, even though I’ve had 4 tickets in that time. But way better than 59 in a 35.

The three previous tickets were in Ohio.
However, had I got those same tickets in NC (where I currently live) and just paid them - I would be 3 points away from losing my license and have 12 insurance points.

You can look at the pics to see the likely financial damage through insurance rate hikes.
