Q: I was driving from Atlantic City.Officer gave me 3 tickets. Speeding/unlawful operation/ endangering people or property?
Pleasant interaction I had no points/ had all my credentials/ why so may tickets for the one offense. Then told me to plea not guilty in court and fight it. Why pleasantly give me 3 tickets to tell me to go plead guilty. Why give me so many tickets in the first place.
A: Unlike in the past now that most interactions with police are recorded it is rare to get a warning and not a ticket if you committed the offense as they don't want to seem like they are giving one person and a ticket and not another. In your case if the officer has you on video violating 3 laws, he is going to give you 3 tickets. That being said as the officer told you, you can fight these tickets and a good lawyer may be able to get some of them dismissed and lower the points you face. Most of us traffic ticket lawyers offer a free in office consultation, I would suggest that you set one up to learn how.
