I was thinking that maybe starting with the contradicting weather conditions would be good. He states that there is light rain at dusk as well as G_Vis. If there was light rain and low light how would the visibility be considered good? I also think that maybe mentioning the interior could help. Grey seats and grey seat belt kind of blends in?
I mainly want to fight this ticket to avoid the demerit points and the hefty fine. I am a third year student and have very little money to spare. I'm thinking that i am best off pleading not guilty but would accepting the charge with a reduced charge be worth it if i have no chance?
If anyone with more experience than I could offer some input on how my defence sounds so far please do.
