I got a ticket in Brooklyn about 93 or so for running a red light. Never paid it.

I got 2 parking tickets on my old car, one 4 yeards ago and the other 2 years ago. Fuck 'em I not paying a cent.

NO, I definately would not pay it. Civil Law has a definitive period of time that any party can collect an outstanding debt. If it was within 5 years or so I would say pay it. The city dropped the ball.

I'd be afraid that some liberal fvckstick at the municipal courts would send me another bill for the interest and late charges that could amount to thousand$. [rolleyes]

So true. Why pay if you dont have to. One less tax dollar the govt can squander.

Your priviledge to operate a motor vehicle in New York state has been suspended. If you return to the state and are pulled over, at least upstate, you will be arrested for Aggravated Unlicensed Operation 3rd,a misdemeanor punishable by up to (I think) 90 days in jail. You would stand a fair chance of having to post bail or spend some time in the county jail, at least up here in the sticks. I doubt they would do anymore than give you an appearance ticket and release in NYC or the larger upstate cities

I could not pay a ticket from another state with out a sweat. However, I would be forced to pay one in my own state for sure. I dont think I could drive without constantly looking in the rear view. I sure dont have the nerve of Valkyrie.

The LA county library actually has books in it? I'm sure those get checkedout a lot [rofl] [rolleyes] Gunsmith, don't be such a puss. It hurts my soul to hear another grown man type something so weak as "I am afraid to use my library card". Is that old hag behind the counter gonna mace and cuff you? Sorry, just had to bust your balls on that one. And no, there is no chance in cold hell I would pay that parking ticket for the aforementioned reasons.
Link Posted: 12/10/2003 2:11:16 PM EDT
Funny thing is, that 1963 Minted dollar bill is worth more than what the ticket cost. So, the man did in a sense pay interest.
Link Posted: 12/10/2003 2:30:38 PM EDT
I would only do it if I were an attention whore like the guy in the quoted article. I mean, how is it that we are privvy to such useless and absurd insight into such a non-event? This guy surely tipped the press to his silly act.

I don't have any plans to drive in NY and if I ever do I will make sure that I have someone else take the wheel. There's got to be some statute of limitations on a traffic ticket. In any case they will never get the money from me anyway. I had a suspended PA license when I got this ticket but due to a fire at PENNDOT there was no way to verufy my license validity. Fuck it!
Link Posted: 12/11/2003 4:41:31 AM EDT
I wouldn't have paid it if it were 38 minutes old. I've got one accruing interest right now.
Link Posted: 12/11/2003 7:52:02 AM EDT
Is there a statue of limitations on moving violations?
Link Posted: 12/11/2003 10:59:09 AM EDT
hhmmmm statute of limitations? I would think that runs from the violation to the ticket. Once you sign the ticket the clock stops. Statute covers the time from crime to arrest and prosecution, I would think that the traffic stop and signature covers the "arrest and prosecution" aspect.
