Q: Bought a car and got a ticket for no license plate on our way to get a license plate, should I pay or fight.
We bought a car in a neighboring state on Saturday. On Monday, dropping the car off at the mechanic to fix some basic problems then on on our way to the DMV, we got pulled over and got a ticket for not having a current plate. We got the plates later, but do we pay the ticket or do we fight since we got the ticket before we actually got the plates?
A: It is best to hire an attorney to handle your ticket. Depending on the Officer the Attorney may be able to convince him or her to drop the ticket without having to go to trial, if you can show you immediately got the tag and plate.
