Ok, so it's 12:09am, I just finish dropping my friend home... I drive to the end of his street (where there is a stop sign, apparently), it's pitch dark... there's OBVIOUSLY no one driving anywhere near where I am (I looked... no lights, there's just obviously no cars...), so I DON'T come to a complete halt, and just turn. Well, 10 seconds later I see lights, and flashing lights, and the freaking cops pull me over. They give me the breathaliser (lucky I hadn't been drinking) and I was like, nice and polite and stuff... and then they STILL give me a freaking $135 fine for not stopping at a STOP sign. fhsjdfhjdsfhjdsfhjhdsfjkdsfkjds. I mean, ok... they're doing their job... but still, this is taking the law too far, IMO. It's 1 in the morning... there's obviously no one around driving... there's no chance I'm going to hit anyone... I hadn't been drinking... and yet they still throw away all human decency and rationality and give me this huge fine. Ughghgg. I mean, 90% of people don't COMPLETELY stop at STOP signs... especially when it's an isolated piece of road in the middle of the night. This is just plain stupidity. I haven't learnt my lesson... I just HATE the police now. Is that what they want? So, yeh... is there any way I can, like, NOT pay this fine? Is there anything I can fight them with? Are they allowed to just sit there, lights off, preying on victims? I don't want to pay this fine out of SPITE, damnit. Plus, I'm a freaking UNI student... I can't afford this kind of thing.
