Q: I have violated code 40-8-90 without knowing it was a law is there anyway i can dispute this ticket.
The office that made the stop told me he was not going to give me a warning because of other people he said in his own words "most people that he tells to changed there lights do not so instead of giving warnings he gives them a ticket on the first stop".
There are several ways to fight this type of ticket, depending on which court you end up in.
But regardless of which court it is, ignorance of the law is not a valid defense.
