The part that I didnt tell you was that the handicap hang tag was broken because of the Az sun and it wouldnt hang up on the rear view mirror. It just happened and I hadnt gotten to DMV to replace it, when I pulled into the parking spot the tag must have slipped of the dash of my car and I didnt notice it missing. My friend and I went to the movies and came out to find the ticket. When I wrote the court I told them that it was on the floor so that when the officer came into court he said it wasnt. I didnt take my friend with me to rebutt the officers testimony but she is willing to sign an affidavit under oathe that the
hang tag was on the floor. Would this help me win the appeal since the hang tag couldnt hang and it had just broken ?
Thanks for the advice. Im sure its good, but I do enjoy writing and love the process.
I hate this about Scottsdale, and I will get even with them over this one. This is a travesty and an obvious attemp to screw one of its citizens. The appeal only cost 17.00 so even if I write it which is fun and lose and add in the other evidence which they wont read it still costs them time and trouble to go through the process, probably more than the 90.00 plus the 17.00 I paid, so rather than let them just take my money, I will enjoy writing the appeal and I just hope that it takes up most of the 117.00 I paid. Amazing that they would screw the handicapped. Might just call channel 3 and see what they about a judge that believes that this was fair.
Thanks for that too, I have written several responses to lawsuits in court and won against real attorneys so this should be fun. Hopefully they have to read my response in full and I love windmills. I will let you know what happens with this one.
Jackasse Judge here I come!
