I think that is the only jaywalking fine I have ever heard of. That stinks!
Fight the ticket, people quite often win fighting the tickets.
Alternatively just wear it and be a good fellow in the future.
I was booked once for going 75 in a 60 zone. 6am on Sunday. 6 lane divided road. Not another car on the road, except the cop, who was going the other way. Oddly though he apologised for giving me the ticket. The next week, the speed limit was raised to 80 in that zone. doh! $180 down the drain[/quote]
I’ve thought about going into court over it, but is it really worth a day of my time for 75 bucks? Even just going in based on principle, that’s at least a whole morning in court and I can’t really stand going to our courthouse because parking is ridiculous here…I don’t know…the worst part is I was doing my best to be courteous because I had been drinking and I didn’t want a PI on top of the ticket, I thought I was just going to get a warning and off to bed.
