Last night driving home from work (midnight), I was pulled over. The Cop was extremely rude, using profane language and acting like i was his little b!tch. I was sited for doing 80 in a 65 (although when he finally decided to pull me over i was doing 65 for a good amount of time) and for having no proof of current insurance. I do have insurance however, I just haven't been sent the new insurance card (my old insurance was expired all of ten minutes, no joke). I have the option of going to traffic school to get out of the fine and points on my license or going to court to fight it. I have two thing going for me. An officer cannot swear or demean you (he kept calling me "man," i guess because i am 19 Mr. Trybus wasn't called for, or sir???) and the fact when he clocked me i was not doing eighty. He was also doing about 95 and slowed down to pull me over. He claimed he was going to respond to a stolen car (i questioned his speed, his answer was i could not write a ticket, but he could). He kept questioning my attitude. I was being a smart ass. He was a total prick... I wonder why i was acting like that. I guess at teenager getting a speeding ticket is more important than a stolen car in AZ, which is a HUGE problem out here. This could not happen at a worse time. I am going to lollapalooza in three weeks, so i am hoping if i choose to take the class i can take it before than. The court date is two days after i get back from chicago. The school is 125 dollars, god knows how much the fines are for the tickets. What would my fellow macrumorers do? Fight it because the cop was a jerk and extremely unprofessional (I doubt he would show up for court, which would mean all "charges" dropped) or go to school for 125 and act like it never happen. Keep in mind insurance in AZ is expensive as hell for young males and if i took the class it would be like it never happen.
