      I can tell ya from experience, most of the time going to court on a ticket is a no win situation.

      2 scenarios. I was coming home, made a left hand turn, no light, me and 2 other people saw that NO ONE was coming, motorcycle came over the hill doing 100 mph+, t-boned me. Highway Patrol, took one look at the accident, discounted the eyewitness testimony, and wrote me a ticket for failure to yield. Went to court, affidavit from another party saying he did not see the motorcycle….I got to pay the fine w/no points.

      Hubby accident, gal went from the right hand turn lane into traffic, he was turning left on the road, she hit him, same ticket, same result in court.

      Several years ago I was sitting at a stop sign & a police officer passed me. I turned left & he turned around & pulled me over. He asked why I did have my seatbelt on, I told him I did, he asked me again & I told him the say thing. He was getting really mad at me. But I wasn’t backing down. He told me no I didn’t & then he said my daughter didn’t have a seatbelt on either. He gave me a ticket for no seatbelt but he didn’t give me a ticket for my daughter (she had a seatbelt on) He was a big jerk. That was all he did, give people tickets for no seatbelt. I wasn’t about to pay for a ticket over something I didn’t do. I went to a no seatbelt class. They showed filmson wrecked car & told stories about people that didn’t wear a seatbelt. Guess who the instructor was???? The policeman that gave me the ticket. I would go to court.

      Yesterday I was stopped by a police officer for not wearing the seat belt. The mistake I made was to unclick the seat belt when he puled me over, I panicked. In all honesty I was wearing it but he gave me a ticket. I didn’t think I did anything wrong and forgot the seat belt law. I live in Illinois.

      He was following me and I didn’t notice him till he turned on the siren. He was upset and asked me why I didn’t stop when I sew him. I didn’t see him, I was looking for an Estate Sale and turning my head left and right, so he thought that I was ignoring him. I am short and was wearing a bulky coat that was unzipped. I think that for that reason he didn’t see me buckled when I went past him. I showed him how fast I can buckle up hoping he would see that I do use my seat belt.

      I can pay $55 or go to court. If I were to go to court do I stand a chance or will I have to pay the $55 plus court costs. If you know anything about this problem please give me your input.

      Thank you,
