Small ticket...But also Small Bank account
I am wondering whether I have a chance in court to at least get the ticket reduced if not dropped and here are the reasons why:
1) The officer never gave me a reason for pulling me over. I was driving around with a couple friends obeying the speed limit and not doing anything illegal at the time of the traffic stop. He asked for my licence and insurance, I gave the insurance to him and looked for my drivers licence but to no avail. He then went back to his car and returned with the ticket merely saying "Make sure you have your licence on you because we use it for identification if you are in a fiery crash and we cannot identify you. Read your options on the back of the yellow copy and you have 15 days to respond. Have a good night and drive safe."
2) I have heard that there is "24 hours" or something of that nature to provide a driver's licence to the police deartment. I will be heading down there in a few hours to try that...Most likely unsuccessfully.
Should I bother trying to fight it or should I just bite my tongue and beg people for money so I can pay it...Or if there is another option you can think of let me know
Thanks in advance
EDIT: I also forgot to mention that I offered to show another form of identification but he did not request or take it
