So back in November I got a speeding ticket in some middle of nowhere town, 3 hours 45 minutes away from home, while working. I got home, called them up, and was told that if I mailed in a payment, the ticket would be kept from my DMV record under a state first offender law. Today I was looking at my insurance renewal quote and realized my insurance was going up by $50 a month due to this ticket which was allegedly not going to be reported.

Instead of a traffic court with an actual judge, this town has a"Mayor's court," where the Mayor acts as the judge. I could cal town hall tomorrow morning, but they were no help the first time. So, I figure my only other option is to call the Mayor directly. So I dug up his home phone number. My question for the hive is should I call the Mayor on his red phone and interrupt dinner? Or should I just wait and call the town hall tomorrow so I can have my problem remain unresolved?

Call him tonight. If he doesn't like it then he needs to take it out on the courthouse drones tomorrow. If they were doing their job, the mayor's dinner wouldn't have been interrupted....

It depends who you are.

Motherfucker works for you, doesn't he?

Don't interrupt his dinner, that's not polite.

Instead, give him plenty of time to finish.  Call him about 2:30AM.

+1...I grew up in a SMALL town and the mentality is worse then big time politicians. Not only do you get fucked by their kangaroo courts in small towns but your liable to get taken out back and really fucked, think Deliverance style. lol

Reading is fundamental. The OP doesnt live in the town he got the ticket in. So he has no association with the Mayor nor that town.

I just told my girlfriend your reply. She said I'd be interrupting him having sex with his wife. I told her "That motherfuker is 65 years old. He ain't fucking shit."

Yeah. This town only had 1140 residents as of the 2000 census.

Post his number and let ARFcom be your lawyer(s).
Link Posted: 6/21/2011 4:35:38 PM EDT
I wouldn't. But I couldn't see it going well once he figures out who you are, and why you are calling.
Link Posted: 6/21/2011 4:37:41 PM EDT
It probably won't make him rule in your favor, but it could be entertaining. Go for it.

Organize a telephonic "Free BDWILLIAMS!" protest?

By the way, this town is a total speed trap. The limit drops from 65 to 45 on the so-called highway which run through it, and the one town cop is sitting behind the hill, just past the sign, with a mullet, aviator glasses, and an 80's vintage radar gun, waiting for passers through. I'm no LEO basher, but this town is literally a speed trap.

ETA: The "highway" doesn't even run through town, just the outskirts. The portion where it is limited to 45MPH is nothing but the same farmland I'd been driving past for the last 2 hours. If I had seen a single fucking building for miles I would have been watching for speed limit signs. Before someone flames, yeah, I was speeding, but it was still a trap, and they still told me they'd keep it off my record.

My bad.  I blame it on the loud and intense conversation some of my co-workers are having about liposuction.

Is officer Mulletor gonna drive 3.75 hours in his 91 Crown Vic to come shoot my dog? I hope not. Though it would be hilarious to watch that 25 year old Ruger P85 of his jam up on him.

Important additional info: Officer Mulletor was blonde and did have a sweet '80's stache. Also, a ton of crumpled napkins and one of these on his dash which appeared to be approximately 10 years old:

Call tomorrow.

A pissed-off Mayor in "Mayor's court"... gee, I wonder how he'll decide?

My girlfriend says we're not screwing tonight if I interrupt the mayor's dinner. She also hasn't cooked dinner yet. Should I just eat PB&J while fapping?

If you don't have pictures or know someone who does, or if you're not a very highly placed "official," then...





You're about to get home cooked if you make that call.
