As someone who lives in Kansas, there is a ton of dirt everywhere when there isn't snow. Also yes it does get cold here, but it doesn't usually get into the negatives except with wind chill. Wind chill makes winter gruesome here

I guess I learned something new today. Where I live, most of our winter weather patterns are either from Canada, or from Lake Effect. I wasn't sure exactly how cold Kansas did get in the winter, thanks for correcting me!

Yeah, I definitely agree with the wind chill making everything worse. The weather isn't that bad, but when you combine high winds with ice storms and blizzards it's not fun.

It's probably a really small ticket. Is it worth the time and effort to fight it. You can be sure they'll leave you to last, and maybe even make you come back.

#27 except for the fact that it could hike one's insurance rates. It's ALWAYS worth the time and effort to fight a traffic ticket. In the long run it saves you money.

#34 No, it's not. If you get a parking ticket, or a ticket for tinted windows, you won't get points on your license. Same with a dirty number plate. It won't effect your insurance rate at all. $20-$50 Vs 5-15 hours in court. You get to decide if it's worth it or not.

Why go to court? If you can't read the plate, you get a ticket. If you don't have on a seat belt, you get a ticket. Has nothing to do with being in an accident.... Except that a policeman had noticed the plate was dirty.

Surely the other guy should have gotten a ticket as well...Also, of course your license plate should be visible, but do you really get a ticket just because there's dirt on it? Wow...

Yes, he does. Just because he got into an accident doesn't mean he gets a get out of jail free card for anything he was doing wrong.

Sucks but one might not have anything to do with the other. How much dirt are we talking here? Enough to not be able to read your license plate? By law it needs to be legible. Imagine in another case, getting involved with a hit and run and not being able to get their license number because it's covered in dirt as it speeds away.

Running a red light IS a citation-able offense. In my State the charge would be "Ignoring a traffic control device " which is a red light or stop sign. I know. I was T-boned by a red light runner and he got one.

#15 not so. I was rear ended a guy while it was pissing down rain. It was an unavoidable accident. The cop on the scene knew that too. He said something along the lines of, "I'm sorry I HAVE to ticket you. If I don't ticket someone at any collision 'I'm not doing my job'." He even finger quoted that. Though he didn't file the paperwork, so it got thrown out when I went to court.
