I got a $100 traffic ticket in the mail. Photo evidence of me breaking the law. There’s a lot of “No Turn On Red” signs in Philadelphia, and I usually see them and follow the rule, but I must have felt in a rush, or I didn’t see the sign.
I was considering requesting a hearing to fight this, but I don’t know what I would say to contest it. The photo’s pretty clear.
And what sucks is that I pretty much never drive the car, but I had gotten a flat tire. I had put on the spare tire and was driving to get the flat one repaired. Pretty shitty — only using the car to try to keep it maintained and then getting a $100 ticket. I should have just left it flat.
There’s an online payment system, but I’m mailing in my $100 check because I don’t want to pay the convenience fee.
