Reason #2: Why I hate NJ (advice please)
    #3860903 - 03/03/05 03:02 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Well, I just bought a 99 jetta a few weeks back, and I finaly got it out onto the interstate. Me and my girl are went to west haven, ct for the weekend. Now I'm on 78, and i'm just about to get off onto 287. I was speeding for awhile, becuase 78 was my first interstate highway with this thing, and I thought I was being pretty responseable about it. Not to many cars, and nice conditions. I hadn't seen a cop since PA.

Now, heres the shitty part. I decide I'd have my fun and start slowing down and going about 70-80 normal highway speed. When I look in my rearview, something I hadn't done in a few miles. A COP, and hes right on my ass. 78 is three lanes at this time and I need to get to the right. I move to the middle. (apparenlty I cut someone off) and the cop follows. Ok great I said. Why won't he pull me over all ready. So I move to another lane, and my exits in sight. He follows and right before I'm off into the exit, bang, the lights. Ok, ok, its fine...

**Import, part, heres where I need the advice**
I got the cash, however, since I'm going 35miles over I am told I must appear in court, even if I plead quility. WTF, WTF. I mean, ok, I have no trouble pleading quility, I was speeding, and as much as I disagree with some laws, I'll pay. But I can't make this court date. I go to school full time. and work 30+ hrs a week. Its going to be hard. I barely have enough time for myself, let alone a court date out of state, which is 2+ hrs away. What do I Do. The court date is scheduled for one of my classes, and I need to be in class. So I figure I am going to call in the next day or two and reschedule. Can I do this, also, can I mention my situation, do I really have to appear in court, I mean, its kinda absurd. So here it is, what would you do shroomery?
what would you do about this court appearnce and ticket.
You may choose only one
call, and get a new date
Fuck em' arrest me Bitch
Call, and try to avoid a court date
Miss the Important class to drive 2+ hrs to a court date where the cop has a 50/50 chance of even showing up.

legally you have 5 days to surrender yourself after a set court date, meaning you have 5 days after your court date to either show in court or set a new date. Anyone can also get an extension.

you might want to check it out though considering im in a diff state than you. :peace:

show up talk to the DA, they will double or triple your fines and drop your points.

It is so much better to show at a court date then just pay the fine adn accept those stupid points. Skip the class tell the professor your situation.

If you think of America as an anatomical representation of the human body, Florida is America's wang, Maine is the head, and NJ is the snug but grisly armpit.

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

lol, well, its my favorite and most important class, in my opinon (cultural geography) I think I am going to call, and explain my situation. See if a court date is absolutely necessary in my sitauation and then reschedule. I will be driving through that area again april 22 on my way to see Hydra in NYC (than the zen tricksters the next night) so I'll see if I can do it then. Or, at the very worest sooner but on a friday, my only day off so to speak.

Now, question number two. I'm not shaving the dreads. I have suit, but should I shave my beard?

I make it a habbit of appearing in court when required to do so. It sucks that you will have to waste at least 5 hours of your time and miss an important class, but you do not want to be running from the law... even from a stupid speeding ticket(which they will probably pull your licensce for.).

Good luck.

i live in NJ and i know what you are going through.. this place fuckin sucks with cops. if the class in important, call and explain your situation. ask to reschedule or ask what they can do to help you out. you from nj? im pretty close to 1 and 9 and yes it is a crazy road. the craziest is probably rt 22

Ok if you dont like jersey move, people in jersey eather work around the traffic, no the back roads, and or dont mind sitting a while.

k as aur legal cunsultant, plead not guilty, move court date, move it again, try for a third and fourth time. If the arresting cop doesnt show then the charge is dropped, other then that just pay up. A cop cant legally fallow you for more then 2 miles.

with 15 some speeding tickets heres my advise, get a good lawyer and have him go to court for you/with you and youll get off. if this means missing class then miss class.

with that jetta youll be getting a few more of these things in the future.
