So I was ticketed in CT for driving with a cell phone.
Yes, yes… Boo, hiss, and shame on me.
It was my first offense, and I was ticketed for $150.
However, upon further inspection, the fine is intended to be $125 according to the CT Department of Justice website:
What do I do? Pay the $150? Pay $125? Plead not guilty and pay $125?
If I have to actually go to court, to save $25, I won’t. Not because I don’t think it’s morally outrageous for police to charge whatever they want for an offense, but because I’m busy and the courthouse isn’t anywhere nearby.
