Default I got a ticket....darn...

On my way home from work today... i was on the highway and i saw the sign that says 'carpool lane ends 500 feet." I decided to move over into it not really thinking much of it. 100 Ft. into it...Lights....I took the ticket without arguing or resisting at all. What you guys think? try to fight it or just pay it?

Yeah, there'* not much to fight. If you lose, I believe you just add more to the total fees with court costs and all.

Hondas are nice reliable cars But I don't think I could take a long trip in one... that would drive me crazy with the comfort. I like my bonne for road trips, prefer the honda'* reliability though.

interesting,, some of you say

you were wrong ,, you broke the law..

although this may be true, why not "fight" iit. by that i mean go to court you may get a reduced fine, cop may not show up and it gets thrown out.
i say why not fight it. what do you have to lose.. nothing.

That'* been covered earlier in the thread, a lot of states charge court costs if you waste their time by fighting a ticket when you're guilty.
