By the way you have written it many judges would find that you owe the additional $2K since it was a mistake that you were aware of and failed to discuss it with the dealer. But again we are lawyers and we can only guestimate what a judge will do the decision is always up to the judge.
In all honesty you should not be concerned about the fines but a few of these violations have a mandatory loss of license and even the possibility of jail time.

The law unlike in some other statues does not state that the that first offense goes away after so many years, so the...Read more »

The answer really depends on the facts of your case. Such as if the cop gave you a street downgrade because he thought you were going 90MPH, but didn't have his laser or radar on, it may be smart to pay the ticket. On the other hand if you merely didn't stop long enough at a stop sign...Read more »
