I got a ticket today. The PO said that I was driving at 65/h in a zone that has a 40/h. When he asked me for the ownership it happened that I had my husband's ownership (we just switched recently the cars). The PO told me not to worry as I will get only the fine but no demerit points. He fined me $110 and wrote contrary HTA sect. 7 (5) (5). What he wrote in words is hard to understand. At the question if I can apply to court he said that there is no reason to do it as I will get no demerit points and that my insurance won't go up.
I tried to find out what sect. 7 (5) (5) means but to no avail. I am very concerned as my insurance company (State Farm) informed me that once I have a record the insurance will go up even if I have no demerit points.
Can anyone explain what sect. 7(5)(5) means.
Thanks

Could it read 7 (5) (a)? That's for failure to surrender permit. 7 (5) (b) would look more like (5) (5), but that is for a trailer permit.

Yes his writing is terrible. It could be 7(5)(a) or 7(5)(9). Do you think it’s worth to plea-bargain it.
Thanks for your reply

Not sure why cops keep telling people this. Just trying to put them at ease I guess, so they don't go all postal on them roadside. "There, there. Everything will be all right. Shh... shh.. shh."

By the time you get your next insurance bill, you'll see just how wrong he is! Next time, ask if he'll put that in writing, LOL ;)
