Re: [DMCForum] Re: Controversy



Yes, there are always other sides to a story.  But in
court, the officers testimony is always more credible
than the defendant.

Over 15 yrs ago I got 2 tickets from the same officer,
one was "changing lanes without signaling", and
"improper lane change".  WTF?  They are the same
thing, no?  Well, I was sure I used my turn signal,
and at the stop the officer asked to so show him my
signal worked.

I went to court.  Cop gets on the stand "He changed
lanes without signaling", I get up "I changed lanes,
and used my signal properly".  Can anyone guess who
won?  :)

The fact that he issued me 2 tickets for the exact
same thing should be evidence that (for some reason)
he was biased.  Maybe he did not like a 18 yr old kid
driving a restored 66 Mustang convertible?  Maybe he
had a quota to make?  Maybe he way not paying close
enough attention to my turn signal lights?  Either
way, this was a simple case of my word against his.
The judge took his testimony as the truth.  I always
wonder why I was not charged with lying under oath
too!  Maybe because there is no profit it in for the
town?
