Okay, I’m pissed. I went to go pay my
This is why I’m pissed:
I got a ticket for speeding where there was NO speed limit sign posted. Also, my car can’t get up to that speed in the time that the cop radared me. I thought I had 30 days to reply/pay. Well, they changed it to 21 days. But you wouldn’t know from looking at the ticket. The entry on the ticket actually looks like the cop wrote “01 days”. I called the courthouse up and they said that I can pay the fine and request to have the late payment set aside. Which I should have done, but figured it wasn’t worth the $30. I then get a postcard saying I have 14 days before they suspend my license. I go to the courthouse today to pay this. On the 14th day mind you. And she says that my license has been suspended. WHAT!?!? Now I owe them an extra $45 to reverse it! So, for speeding where there was no sign and for a speed that my car couldn’t do, it cost me $180!!!!!!!
I was just sitting here looking at the postcard and read this: “NOTICE: You may have the right to set aside a default by requesting a hearing within 14 days of the mailing date. You must post a bond equal to the total fine and costs noted when requesting a hearing to set aside a default.”
You know what that means? It means the B1TCH lied to me and I could have had more than the late fee taken off! I could have had the whole damn thing reversed! But I didn’t look at the card until now. Dammit!
Crap like this makes me want to quit my job here in
