Traffic Court

Oh, how quickly my hard-nosed defense turned to one of pity-inducing groveling. I came with pictures, hard evidence, exhibits and more--all predicated on the placement of a sign. Once that was shot down (within the first thirty seconds or so) I immediately switched to the "I didn't know you couldn't do that" defense made popular by Dave Chappelle.

It worked.

Now I just have to remember that I'm not $100 richer, I'm just not $100 poorer.
