Yes thank you for clearing up that two wrongs don’t make a right, I was unsure that wasn’t true in anywhere but math. I am not saying Morally I wasn’t wrong for being a dick driver in response to them being a dick driver...
But what I am saying is that legally I’m not sure if I did do anything wrong. The passing lane is for passing. I was in the passing lane, and I was passing by slower traffic. They tried to pass me on the right a few times but I would just speed up so they couldn’t. And since I was speeding up when they did I was faster moving traffic so I had the right to be there legally... And last time I checked I’m allowed to pull over on the side of the highway. It could just be a coincidence that they passed me when I did and we met up later on the highway. I mean it’s not. But to convict someone there has to be real evidence. Which there isn’t. And even the other drivers testimony won’t be relevant I believe. Because legally I didn’t do anything wrong.
I am aware of all of this and we can woulda coulda shoulda all day and night but that isn’t going to help me in court. And to clear something up the ticket is for Reckless driving. I was apparently being reckless by harassing and cutting off a female driver. Legally I didn’t cut her off. I didn’t switch lanes... and that’s the definition. And harassing a female driver isn’t irrelevant, because the sex of the other driver shouldn’t matter, nor have any effect on the ticket. And since they wrote it down... it probably does...
I am aware that I was being a dick, and overreacted. But was looking for legal advice that can help.
Well ya that is true... And no a cop didnt see any of this... which is another reason besides the technicalities as to why I shouldnt be In trouble. I wasnt called in by any other motorist. Just the female driver.
And no I haven’t admitted to anything. I hardly said much. I started telling the female cop my side of the story, but she interrupted and she said that’s their job, and its not my business to patrol the highway is all she really said about it. And to whoever asked earlier about the car I bought is a Tiburon. I’m not into the "Tuner" or whatever scene. I just thought it looked nice, drove nice and was well taken care of, that and low miles. It’s a coupe, but once again... on the ticket it says sports roadster. Haha it says a lot of things that aren’t good. Roadster, Female, and Reckless, aren’t very forgiving words on the same ticket. I’ve contacted a lawyer and he said I have a fair case to get this dropped or the very least reduced to failing to yield to faster traffic. And also he said both cops have to show up. There were three cars there while I was pulled over but one took my statement, and one wrote the actual ticket... The other was just there because the probably thought I was going to kill her
