Today, I got a ticket for driving without insurance. I gave the cop my insurance information, but he said it was invalid because it didn't show an expiration date. When I pointed out the information he was looking for, he ignored me and gave me a ticket anyway. FML

You can probably fight that in court

You should be able to get that thrown out pretty easily

Where I'm from, OP could easily go to that officer's command, show his valid insurance info, and have the summons voided right there without having to go to court for it.

Not sure why you're getting downvoted- you're right. I would bet the cop wouldn't even show up, aka instant win.

the court could easily end up more expensive than the ticket. and im pretty sure courts dont have an instant win condition.

#17, if the officer doesn't show up then it's dismissed. So yeah instant win.

I've heard about cops not showing up and the case getting dismissed instantly, even if the person was guilty.

Cops are just ppl. Brilliant to total dumbass. Like a box of chocolate you never know what you'll get. You did right by talking sense and figuring out you got Einstein and taking the ticket. Show the judge and you win. No show and pay a fine

At 27 flip the box over.

Absolutely fight it. Not sure what the policy is in OP's state, but normally a traffic hearing costs around $25. Bring proof of insurance and the magistrate will have no choice but to drop it since the officer cited you didn't have insurance.

In California, if you register to fight it, and you show but the officer doesn't, you win. You will need to pay the full amount of the ticket (bail) in advance, but will get it fully refunded when you "win." Even if the officer shows up, you have proof you DID have insurance on the date of the ticket being written. Your insurance company will happily fax/email you proof if you ask. Easy win, if still a pain-in-the-ass to deal with.

I know what I'm getting in a box of chocolate. I'm getting chocolate. at 27

My comment was originally like the two pervious and one under me so I decided to waste your time by making you read my comment clarifying why it like so.

Still have to spend a bunch of time going and proving it.

mfw someone says something completely off topic (^_^)

That shouldn't be hard to fight off - you don't deserve it!

Unlucky bro. He's the scum of the force

probably a sith Lord

Well if it's worth it you can always go to court to argue against the cop and the ticket. Also you can report the cop for the incident. But depending on where you live, court can be expensive.

There's always the option of bringing this to court. You should be able to get the ticket turned over.

Wow, I guess that cop couldnt stand being wrong. I would fight that if I were you, OP.

If there's one thing I hate in the world worse than Jews it's the fucking pathetic cops.

Fight it and report the officer
