Re: Would I have any luck fighting this?
Did you know it was a school zone?
Don't drive almost 40mph in a school zone at 3:15 in the afternoon. Even if it's a 2-3pm restricted zone. Come on.
If you didn't know, then fair enough, mistakes happen. Either way, I wouldn't waste my time fighting it, you will probably lose. For every story of someone getting out of a ticket because a cop didn't show up, there are probably ten people who tried and the cop did show up. They love to in Columbus, it's generally overtime pay. But it varies everywhere.
We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.
