Q: What can of proof is acceptable in court if I fixed property damage myself instead of turning it in on my insurance?
I got a ticket for property damage when I hit a mailbox. The law told me to go fix it the next day I did. I didn't turn it in on my insurance because it wasn't that bad. When I went to court they need proof that it's fixed. I was wondering if you could tell me what kind of proof is accepted in court?
A: You can probably get a letter from the owners stating that you fixed the damage, that would likely be enough for the DA. You should also take some pictures of the new mailbox.
