Q: If I go to court to fight a ticket an officer gave me will the officer know I went to go fight his ticket?
I got pulled over for running a red light even though I just turned on red on a light that I’m able to turn on red but the officer pulled me over but gave me a ticket for unclear license plate even thought I know I didn’t do any thing wrong should I fight it and will the officer be notified if I fight it
A: Probably best to pay the ticket the officer will be notified to go to court when you plead not guilty and request a court date.
Jonathan Herron agrees with this answer
A: The officer will be notified if you plead not guilty as they will have to make themselves available to testify. Depending on how you turned right you might have gotten pulled over for doing a "rolling stop." The ticket which was written may have been the office being nice by giving a less serious ticket.
